Playtime

#326: Do you play in your daily life? What says “playtime” to you?

Kicking back and watching The Good Wife. Or playing some video games with my brother – most recently LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham (such a good game!). Another form of my playtime is meeting up with my friends for dinner, drinks or the odd pub quiz. There are simply too many options to choose from!

Competition

#83: What activity, task, or game most brings out your competitive streak?

I wouldn’t say I’m as competitive as when I was little but I remember always wanting to win Singstar (karaoke game – I love singing), star wars monopoly and disney trivial pursuit, and getting quite annoyed if I hadn’t! I’d be quite interested to see if I was still that competitive when it comes to these three games – I’ll have to call a family games night when my brother gets back from uni… 

I think the last time my competitive streak was unleashed, must have been during a quiz style game the office played over Christmas. It’s kind of our fail safe game to play whenever there is a cause to celebrate (i.e. birthdays and christmas) and we’ve been to the pub for the afternoon. I don’t like being on the winning team purely as quite a few competitive individuals brag about winning, making it harder to enjoy so to speak. No one enjoys playing games against a sore loser/winner!
