It's the taking part that counts.

Winning isn't everything- but it isn't nothing either. This week we are talking about how winning influences our enjoyment of a game. We have found that often the games we love aren't always the ones we are very good at - so what makes these games our favourites if its not winning!

We also discuss some of the games we have been playing this week including Fog of Love, Pillars of the Earth, Lanterns and The Chameleon.

Remember to check us out on social media though out the week and we should also be on the Our Turn podcast this week so go check them out to hear more from us!


  1. I tend not to think of myself as someone who cares much about winning, which is good because I don't win very often; but when I play a new game and win it, I definitely find myself thinking better of it than if I lose. Most recent experiences of this: Sagrada, and The Bird Told Me To Do It.

    1. I'm sure you win more than you think! Are you the kinda person who tracks stats?

    2. Only games played (Firedrake on BGG), not wins. I might well find that in reality I get my fair share of wins (except in Parade, which I've played four times and won every time) but it doesn't feel that way, especially when it's the sort of game where my mate P. can analyse it faster than I can and walk all over me from about turn 2. :)
