The Family Gamer
I play games to spend time with my kids or other family members.
The Strategy Gamer
I mainly play games that test knowledge and/or strategy and don't involve much luck, such as abstract strategy, tactical or puzzle games.
The Casual Gamer
I occasionally play games with friends and family as a fun activity. I also enjoy playing some of the more complex games when I have the time.
The Avid Gamer
Playing games is one of my hobbies. I'm willing to try almost any game, and I'm usually the one who trys to get other people to play.
The Power Gamer
I seek out complex and intricate games and play to win. I often play games at my local hobby/game store, and may attend conventions or tournaments.
