    Default Boardgames for the quadras

    Boardgames that represent (stereotypical) values of the quadras


    Alpha - Pictionary



    The game is played with teams with players trying to identify specific words from their teammates' drawings.
    The team chooses one person to begin drawing; this position rotates with each word. The drawer chooses a card out of a deck of special Pictionary cards and tries to draw pictures which suggest the word printed on the card. The pictures cannot contain any numbers or letters. The teammates try to guess the word the drawing is intended to represent.

    There are five types of squares on the board, and each Pictionary card has a list of five words printed on it. Players must draw the word which corresponds to the square on the board on which the team's marker is


    Beta - Risk



    Risk is a turn-based game for two to six players. The standard version is played on a board depicting a stylised Napoleonic-era political map of the Earth, divided into forty-two territories, which are grouped into six continents.
    Players control armies with which they attempt to capture territories from other players. The primary object of the game is "world domination," or "to occupy every territory on the board and in so doing, eliminate all other players." Using area movement, Risk ignores limitations such as the vast size of the world and the logistics of long campaigns.


    Gamma - Monopoly



    The game is named after the economic concept of monopoly, the domination of a market by a single entity.


    Delta - The Game of Life



    The game simulates a person's travels through his or her life, from high school graduation to retirement, with jobs, marriages and children (or not) along the way.

    I KNEW you were going to put Monopoly for Gamma. That's like the biggest meme here ever: Gammas = money.

    Anyway, Apples for Apples possibly for Alpha? It's all about combining adjectives and nouns like DELICIOUS HELLEN KELLER. Perhaps more Delta since there's no objective standard for a win, it's based purely on how amusing a judge finds your answer (might be Fe > Fi though?)

    I've always been really bad at all boardgames except Balderdash. I'm good at convincing people of things so it just sort of came naturally.

    Go is a boardgame that has always been intriguing to me.
    But, for a certainty, back then,
    We loved so many, yet hated so much,
    We hurt others and were hurt ourselves...

    Yet even then, we ran like the wind,
    Whilst our laughter echoed,
    Under cerulean skies...

    I'm not sure if I can think of a game I'd take of Risk. It's an amazingly fun game, with the exception that I can't ever get anyone that wants to play. It also has a small luck factor, to make things more interesting. (but not quite as much of a luck factor as seen in Monopoly; Monopoly is like Blackjack in the sense that there's a rather simple basic strategy that most anyone playing to win isn't going to defy)

    Woo-hoo! I totally agree with beta, gamma, and delta. Life is one of my favorite games. Pictionary is like charades. Fun, but gets old fast. I'm seldom in the mood to play Risk, but the family Beta loves it. If the alphas don't want pictionary, I say we give 'em mousetrap and chess. Long as the chess pieces are rennaissance shaped so they can argue with each other on the battlefield.

    I love Balderdash. Don't know why many people don't like it, but I seriously always win. That's probably why. I think I might be kind of bad at it now though.

    Motion Passed. I would definitely rather play Risk than Pictionary any day. Pictionary, balderdash and others along the same...casual theme are fun for parties or whatever, but when I want to play boardgames, I'm playing BOARDGAMES. Something that is more game focused than socially focused. My personal favourites are these:


    Agricola


    Catan

    I prefer playing imaginary RPG style games outdoors, all that room to have arena battles and explore. But I can get into dungeons and dragons things, never played any of those games though. Looks like a lot of fun.

    Yeah, DnD is fabulous. I have a hard time really thinking of it as a boardgame though. Hypothetically you could make it never-ending, whereas a boardgame typically has a specific objective.

    I've never LARPed before and I'm not sure I ever would. Just not my thing.

    Monopoly makes me too angry to play

    I'm down for a good game of Settlers of Catan anyday though.

    Yikes. I HATE Life. I like Scattergories, domino games, Monopoly, Clue, Scrabble, Pictionary... I like Settlers too. Life is so incredibly boring.

    My Delta friends play a lot of Settlers of Catan. The LSE always wins. I think his Te gives him a leg up on the resource management part of the game.

    I've only ever seen Settlers played by Alphas and Deltas, and I think it leans more Delta. I would get bored by the game's limitations if I played it too much.

    When my aunt and uncle come to visit, everybody always plays Catan. I wonder if it is an inherently Delta game?

    Good one
    Never heard of it before so I looked it up and that could work for Alpha too. It sounds very in general and maybe some for matching things up

    I love most games including monopoly, risk, catan, scattergories, pictionary, guesstures, etc... There are only a few I don't like mainly scene it (I am apparently horrible at remembering things related to movies and even worse at being the first to yell it out) and I don't really care for apples to apples which gets my alpha game vote.

    I've come to see chess as being predominantly SeTi overall. It's an entirely self-contained and explicitly-structured "situation" -- as far as a context that must be accepted to proceed with action. Each piece has a specific place and capacity (Se observable magnitudes) and a direct relation to every other piece on the board. There is a constant maintenance of these things in the actual operation of the game. I'm not exactly sure where NiFe comes in, but I think it pertains to the psychological aspect. Within the structure, certain actions are possible (Ti parameters on Fe), and behind the respective positions of pieces lie intangible processes that guide their activity. This attitude is important when gauging your opponent, because you have to discern the latent pattern behind his moves (Fe intentionality) and how it relates to underlying themes in the development (Ni confluence).

    I'd say chess is very beta. Though, I'd imagine gamma NTs are probably the best at chess.

    Decisive logical.

    The idea of it is beta ST, but playing it is gamma NT.

    My daughter and I (both IEE) love Apples to Apples. I do not at all like chess. Most boring game ever made. I don't like Monopoly either, but my husband does.

    I'm also a fan of Apples to Apples. I like to come up with clever ways to match the words together to get hilarious meanings. Like matching soy sauce with universal to make a joke about China taking over the world. However, most of the time my logic escapes people :/

    I wouldn't say Chess is clearly beta or associated with ST in any way, but it has always seemed Ni/Se ish to me in that outside-the-box thinking gets you nowhere in it. The imagination is only involved in predicting the outcome of a set of possible flows in a fixed context. To an Alpha NT, changing the context is what the fun is about, but chess doesn't offer any oppurtunities for doing so.

    I agree completely with this. I was once tried to explain this to a man running a strategy board games shop (really it was mostly a chess place). He couldn't understand why I didn't like the kind of strategy needed for chess. This is way better than the explanation I tried to come out with.

    Please tell me what the Ne way to play chess is, because I'm deeply skeptical. I'm sure it's possible for some alpha NTs to enjoy it, but I still think it's an extremely limiting game if you play with anyone who actually knows how to play.

    Oh, I don't even know if there is an Ne way, but I figured you probably haven't played it.

    My issue with chess is that it's all strategy. I like a little chance getting thrown at you in a game to respond to.

    My favorite card game is euchre. It's a nice mix of strategy and chance.

    DnD is by far the most Alpha, so/sx game imaginable.

    On an unmodified roll of 20(d20), I cream myself at the end of every session.

    also apples to apples is great, helen keller is instant win, etc

    One of the guys I play with every Thursday rolls a d20 to determine if he's going to cream himself anytime I touch him or the other female player to heal them (3.5 Bard). DC15, unmodified, btw.
