Have you ever found yourself faced with the possibility of having to play a game you really do not want to play? How do you handle the situation? For me, as I get older, I have found my taste and likes in games has changed, I think for the better, others say for the worse. Bottom line is, it is my choice to play those games that I enjoy and to not play those that I dislike for whatever reason. When these situations arise, I tend to politely decline a seat at the table and will usually chat with someone else who is not playing the game as well. I sometimes find that some of the folks get offended to easily when i don’t want to play what they are playing. I usually shrug off the few comments, but it does get frustrating. Don’t people understand that not everyone likes what they like? I fully appreciate individual tastes and I try hard not to be an ass towards those that decline an offer I may extend to them.
There are numerous games and genres I do not much care for and there are even some people I prefer to not game with. So, let me get this off my chest! The one game that I dislike playing is Pathfinder RPG and it’s crappy domineering organized play program. The one genre I dislike is Deckbuilding games (boring!). I will refrain from naming names. So, what do you dislike and how do you avoid getting roped into playing? Get it off your chest, don’t be bashful. Free your gamer mind so you can enjoy your games more!
