On Winning and Losing

16 Aug

Every once in a while, I am reminded why it is important that I’m not that competitive when it comes to board games. (I am competitive about other things, but not board games.) This is good because my husband is very competitive, is not a gracious loser, and is only marginally a good winner. The same goes for other friends to whom winning (or not losing) is equally important.

Being okay with losing the majority of the time means that I can still enjoy the games, even when playing with people who are much less casual about it than me.

    Hello Shanendoah ,

    My name is Catherine, I’ve been reading your blog, I’m impressed by its quality and nice and clean presentation, also the fun way you write about games and entertainment, I enjoyed your interesting views and your articles here a lot.

    That is why I would love to add your blog in the blog directory that I admin. It’s a high web traffic, Page Rank 5 blog directory named Blogdire,, it’s visit count grows exponentially every day and has high quality gained by listing great blogs like yours, because it does not have advertisement nor pop-ups.

    Having your blog listed in my directory, will definitely improve it’s page rank in search engines, (like Google), and you will have many visits to leave nice comments and feedback, and of course, more people to enjoy your blog and share your interests.

    In exchange of becoming part of the directory, all I ask is a simple link to my site, I can assure you, the operation is extremely simple and there is no money involved.

    Let me know if you are interested and what you think.

    Kind regards,
