Hmm, of course I would rather play with someone equally matched. My second choice would be less talented, because I could tell myself I was being charitable and “teaching” them as I kicked their butts. I’m not sure I see the point of having my own butt kicked, because I really don’t play games that much, so it’s not like I need to hone my skills through painful means.
Either the same or more talented otherwise there is no challenge – what is the point of playing if there is no fun or challenge?
Depends how well I already play. If I’m a novice, I’d rather play with someone who can teach me. If it’s a game I’m good at, I’d rather show some insider tips and tricks to the other person.
I’m not particularly competitive–can you tell? 😀
It doesn’t really matter. I’m not the least bit competitive. I just like to have fun regardless of winning or losing.
I’ll play any game with anyone. If they are more talented than me, hopefully I will learn something. If they are less talented, hopefully I can teach something. The best though is if we are equally talented then we can have a good competition. My favorite game is “Trivial Pursuit”.
Ok I’ll say it, I like to win! So I of course would like to play someone less talented.
I also am one of those mean people who do not let little kids win a game just so they can have the warm fuzzies about themselves!
I like to win but I don’t “need” to. I wouldn’t want to win all the time or I’d feel bad but I wouldn’t want to lose all the time either. I don’t let anyone win either Just A Mom. I try but if I don’t win, I can still fall asleep at night.
“I can still fall asleep at night” until I beat you at bowling *grins* can’t wait!
More talented b/c you usually play better yourself.
One day with each for me. One will build my self esteem. The other will push me to be better.
kweenmama… lol there is no self esteem building in beating a one legged raquet ball player. 🙂
I think another question might be;
If you are obviously a better player at the game of choice do you slack off so you don’t humiliate the other player? After all they may never play with you again.
I say kill them. It builds character. :))
More, so I can learn from them..
