How you play the game
When playing a game, the goal is to win, but it is the goal that is important, not the winning.Reiner Knizia, Super-Famous Board Game Designer
As Dr. Knizia reminds us, you should always play your best but winning isn’t the point. Enjoy the game, enjoy the people, enjoy the friendly competition, and then be gracious in both victory and defeat.
Remember that YOU are part of the night’s entertainment for everyone else at the table. Make it a fun night for them!
