477Leagues and record-keeping
- Mar 5, 2008No, not always a league with averages and positions; sometimes just a
record of what happened each time.
I'm now of the view that these leagues, fun-leagues, and record-
keepings are a Good Thing. They are not serious. But they add a
dimension to the gaming, add to the banter, add to the
cohesiveness ... and give something for the site to do ... which also
adds cohesion, in theory.
I've always resisted a table of winners/scores across all games we
play, a sort of overall league. I still resist that, it won't happen.
But leagues or records across particular games seem good. And the
MORE games we bother to league or record, the MORE proudly-happy
people we have, assuming that the highers and lowers vary from game
to game ... More leagues and record-keeping mean more people happy
that their successes were noticed and recorded, for that slight extra
push of pride amongst fellows. No need to reply that it really
doesn't matter to you; you'd be fooling yourself; you play with it
not mattering, but you DO get a further buzz if you then see yourself
appearing as numero uno somewhere ... Unless you are the
administrator, in which case the buzz comes from your league hanging
on your every word, not from topping the league...
The GOOD thing about SEVERAL slow leagues or record-keeping is that
several players each top something, or are high on something ... even
if it is by chance on a game of much chance!
So, this leaning towards leagues on LOTS of games is NOT to make LBGC
more competitive; it is to give acknowledgement and appreciation,
extra happiness, to those who do well in a game or two, OK? Somebody
gets more breast-swelling, lots of people are current champions or
contenders, on one or other game, ... and it gives more for our SITE
So I'll post on Werewolf record-keeping next ...
