Over the weekend I attended a "Game Night" party where all we did was play games. It was a lot of fun, but what fascinated me was how frustrated the host got when people weren't paying attention to the games.
You may think this is silly, but I agree with his general attitude. Okay, it's only a game, but unless you pay attention, and play by the rules, it's no fun. You can take things too seriously, but if you're not going to take it seriously at all, why bother?
