Dave Oberheu on fun and winning
My friend Dave Oberheu is a bit of a gaming nut. Having played several games at his house over the years I can tell you from first hand knowledge that Dave probably owns more games than you have ever played.
“This time investment means a lot can be lost or gained in a players experience and means â€œfunâ€, â€œsportsmanshipâ€ and â€œwinningâ€ are put in a crucible over a blowtorch.”
“In a crucible over a blowtorch.” I love that bit. And he’s right. A game that takes a very long time to complete will ultimately mean a wane of interest to win or have fun.
The bit where he puts dimwits and poker players in the same sentence? That I can not agree with for I like poker.
