All that I am proposing here seems like alot of effort. I mean, it’s just a game right?!?
Hmmmmm … Maybe … please let me explain.
Firstly 2 distinctions that need to be made.
- Casual vs Competative
- Hobby vs Game
Casual vs Competative
Think this post say it all: Casual vs Competative.
Hobby vs Game
Like most hobbies, how much effort you put in, and the enjoyment you take out is really an individual preference. I view this as my hobby, not just playing a casual game every now and then.
You need to do what gives you joy in your life and know what is right for you.
Read this to know what I enjoy: Why? Why This? Why Now?
So … It Depends What You Are Playing For
If you are playing just for a casual game … This is TOTALLY OVER THE TOP!
If you are just out to play a casual few games here and there with friends? PLAIN STUPID, INSANE AND UNNECESSARY.
If you just want to get a little better to whop your regular opponent? It’s overkill.
If you are playing with an aim to become competative, this is a path you can walk.
If it is your aim to develop your ASL play in a hobby you want to be engaged in for a long period of time, and you want to be a better player. It’s all good.
Neither is right or wrong. You just need to know what game you are playing.
I’m in for the long haul. It’s a hobby for me.
Over the top? Yes, and follow me! I mean what could possibly go wrong??

I think ASL is a platform upon which we and our opponents build and share an imagination (aka movie). Doing our best to contribute a competitive play enrich the story for both.
Agree. Everyone brings their own skills to the game and to the hobby too.
