Last time, I told you about my feeling when people are not really pay attention because they are too busy with their smartphone while playing board game (see : Board Game versus Social Media). Yes, I hate it and I hate them. Now, I will tell you some informations about digital game versus board game.
Firstly first, in digital games, obviously you can’t literally “touch” any components that shown on the screen, you only “touch” the screen. You can touch board games, it has physical components. Digital games need electricity or battery. Board games are not and no cables are needed.
Digital games are independent, they can be played by itself, they don’t have a manual or rulebook. On some digital games, you can learn the game by selecting tutorial in the menu/in the options but some are not given any tutorial in the menu. Digital game that don’t have tutorial usually will teach you how to play, earlier in the game. The game will teach you step by step, and you’ll find yourself already get along with the game.Let’s say angry bird, who doesn”t know angry bird. The game teach you how to launch the red bird, yellow-blue-black-green-birds one at a time. Unlike digital games, board game can’t be played by itself. There is two ways playing a new board game : Read the rulebook by yourself or let somebody teach you the game. You can’t ask somebody who hasn’t play the game or read the rulebook. You can also search a video tutorial in youtube.
Let’s talk about adventure games. In digital games, adventure games always online casino have a story and an ending when you clear the game. You spent couple of hours finishing the game to see the ending. After you finished it, you might play it once more because it has multiple endings, if it’s not then you might only just played one time until the rest of you life. Board games are different, whether it’s an adventure themed or not. You might always want to play more than once, except you really doesn’t like the game or the theme or the mechanism. Why? It is not about board games also has different endings but because you’ll find different situations, different cases if you play one more time. You might win in the first game, but can you win in the second or later game using the same strategy or same patterns? I bet you can’t. You can’t precisely read your opponent’s move and action, can you? Eventhough you can, you still do not know what cards are your opponent holding in their hands, or what number will be shown after you roll the dice. Randomness of the dice, bad drafting of the cards, many decisions making will make you want to play board game again and again.
I still have more to tell you, but let’s call it a day. See you next month.
