I was once asked, during a game, if I planned where my piece would be after my shot. I said No. I have a better answer that more related to the way I live my life.
I spend most of my day planning where I will be, or what will be in place long-term after a decision is made and carried out. That’s how I make my decisions, what are all the possibilities of an out-come and how will it effect things later. Sometimes, I need to not do that. Do mindless things that I can just walk through, with my brain pretty much turned off. Games are one of those things. They allow me to just sit back and be completely oblivious to how my decision is going to change the final outcome. It’s not life or death, it’s not anything close. Just pure fun. 🙂
