As I had my few days at home my dad cooked a big pot of stew and invited Rob, my girlfriend, and myself over. After dinner we played a friendly game of poker which I acted as dealer and essentially the host of the game.
Before I continue on I must restate what Game Theory is. What it is is this; in my chapter I stated that, within games, I come alive. Because there are rules, and when playing a game everyone's focus is on the game, I feel more comfortable and am able to socialize in a group more normally.
Anyway, while we played I had to explain the rules several times and other nuances to the game and I had no trouble doing so. All in all it felt great.
After the game I ebbed a bit and became much quieter and not as energetic. This is normal and my girlfriend pointed that out. Also, she mentioned that I said her name many times in a short while within the game. This too is the power of games as I try not to use names. As odd as it sounds I feel using names is just too personal but within a game it is a necessity.
I'm glad I have the best girlfriend in the world as she understands this all and has no problem with the moments I do ebb from those times I have no problem commanding a game. And this is the point I'm wanting to make; understanding is so vital because if this is not understood it would be massively confusing as to how I can go from active, and talkative within the confines of a game to silent, quiet, and highly reserved. While my segment on Game Theory has changed the core concept holds true today just like it always has.
