Lately I’ve been spending a lot of time playing various board games on various sites, and I just have to say that I am totally enjoying the experience. I’m trying to learn Go & Xiangqi as well as some more obscure games (Dvonn, StreetSoccer), and I’m playing old favorites as well (Backgammon). Even though it is all “PvP” so far I’ve not met a single “jerk.”
A lot of folks are quite silent, but I have encountered a few of my fellow chatty types, and wishing your opponent “Good luck” and ending with “Good game” seems to be the general trend, and that applies equally to Dailygammon, IYT, DragonGo and Little Golem. It just seems like these kinds of games draw a nice sort of person.
Its just such a nice discovery! I’m still looking for a site that lets me easily play Shogi. If anyone knows of one, I’d love to hear about it!
