On Winning
Friends..

Do you ever feel bad about winning?

For example, I've been beating my friends so often and by such lengths in scrabble, that when I win yet another game, I feel almost bad.

After awhile, it's not that much fun to win anymore, it makes me feel guilty. Can you relate?
Although it is not true that all conservatives are stupid,

Because it is easier to give someone the finger than a helping hand.

Re: On Winning
Sing yourself on down the street
Sing yourself right off your feet
Sing yourself away from victory
And from defeat

Sing yourself with fife and drum
Sing yourself to overcome
The thought that someone has lost
And someone else has won

Soon

The Kingdom of your love

You could try playing a game that someone else is any good at. Apparently your friends suck bad at scrabble.

No - I'm just that good.

One of them is a fair match for me, and it's challenging, but I keep winning.

So you don't try to win when you play a game? Or do you just avoid games so you don't have to win or lose?

Re: On Winning
I wonder if anyone plays cards anymore? Pinochle, Canasta Spades, Hearts etc. I remember when I was a kid that was a real social interaction with people in the neighborhood. Maybe we lost something important.

My parents and their friends played Canasta and Poker. I played a few times with them when I was in my twenties, and it was fun. I don't know anyone that does that now. Too bad :(

Re: On Winning
I'd actually prefer not keeping score at all. But it's not possible online.

The way I like to "play" scrabble is more about making interesting words, and the aesthetic layout and composition of the board itself. I find that more gratifying, and sometimes forego a high scoring word to achieve the former considerations.
