We are a very competitive bunch. We like to play games together but it doesn't always end well. Family games often end with pouting on one side and gloating on the other. Steve and Dagny are very magnanimous winners, they are a little less gracious when losing. Dane and I can be a little exuberant when we win. Dane even has a dance that accompanies his winning. This doesn't stop us from playing cards and board games together, but it has hampered our family enjoyment of the Wii. We bought the Wii to enhance our family game night, and for awhile we all had fun together, until Dane got better than the rest of us. He wins every single time at every single game.
intently trying to win barely trying, still winning
this is what winning looks like
This is not a problem if you don't mind losing to him, but Steve and Dagny do not enjoy losing, so that leaves Dane with only me to play with. I don't really pose much of a challenge for him, but we play MarioKart, and we have a good time. (I now know more about the Mario Universe than I ever thought I would) I like that Dane wants me to play with him, we really do have fun, but I have a secret hope that one of these days I will come in first and beat him. I know, dream big.
