In playing a game, both you and your opponent have agreed to spend those few hours rolling dice and pushing around little soldier toys rather than doing real life stuff – perhaps even at the expense of work or family. If you are taking a beating and quit the game, how is that “fun” for your opponent? If you were crushing them wouldn’t you be upset if they rage-quit, and just gave up, ruining your fun? Play out the game and be a good sport about it!
So remember, even when the chips are down – tough it out and do your best to learn from the defeat – even while it’s happening.
~What’s your most useful defeat – that most improved you as a player? What happened and what did you gain from the experience?
