Discovering your gaming alter ego - which one resonates?

Which gaming persona are you? I'm intrigued by the kaleidoscope of personalities that surface when players are about to engage in competition. Playing tabletop games uncovers a mosaic of different personas. Initially daunting, the experience may catch you off guard as you navigate through the intricacies of the game, especially when you're not fully acquainted with its nuances



How do you compete with a strategist if you are the socializer type? The strategist think of several moves in advance while the socializer prioritize the overall enjoyment of the game. They are never on the same page. Fostering a fun atmosphere is never the agenda of the a strategist or the competitive player. Funny thing is, the competitive player, often called the "killer" might understand the strategist somewhat, simply because they want to win at all cost. Winning is their only objective. So, these two might possibly get along.


The player who is always focused on the rules might be the most annoying to the competitive player and the strategist. Naturally, everyone wants to adhere to maintaining order and have a fair gameplay. The rule stickler insists on absolute adherence to the game's regulations, often emphasizing strict compliance with every rule, which can become quite irksome for fellow players.


In certain games, having a player who excels in diplomacy and negotiation, like the adept diplomat, proves essential for smooth gameplay, ensuring fair compromises and effective negotiations. These players know how to navigate conflict and disagreements, and is perhaps the best fit and go between for all types of player.
