Do You Believe In Luck or Skills for Your Game Winning Recipe?

Don’t you love the feeling of winning a game? The thrill of victory lasts quite a while, especially when you’re playing against a computer. After all, the computer may be better at the game than you!

Maybe it’s after a great strategy game like Jigsaw Deluxe or a fast-paced action game like 3-Point Shootout. No matter your taste, game winning is such a satisfying sensation!

Do you believe in luck or skills to win

But you have to ask yourself: “did I win that game because of my incredible skill or was luck on my side?”

These are two schools of thought! Each side has their own pluses and minuses. Let’s break it down:

If you fall into the skills camp, you probably believe that “practice makes perfect.” You believe this, because you’ve seen yourself get better and better at games the more you play them. Or maybe you’ve read articles about sports pros that are really good. You fully believe that it took at least 10,000 hours of practice for them to get to the top of their game.

On the other side of the coin, you might be a big supporter of luck. People who believe in luck see the random nature of the world, BUT they think that fate can be influenced by outside factors. Maybe you’ve tried playing a game a hundred times, but you only won when you had your favorite shirt on or you had your lucky coin in your pocket. Something about this lucky charm makes you feel like game winning is more of a possibility!

On the plus side, when you practice and practice at a game, there are things you start to notice. Even those of us who are slower a building up skills will be able to pick up game mechanics or familiar patterns…and then we start to get better!

Yet when you practice something and don’t feel like you’re getting any better at it, it can be very frustrating. Sometimes repeating a skill makes you want to give it up and not bother with it anymore. Practice only makes perfect if you stick with it!

Is game winning from luck or skills

But if you’re more of a “luck” person, you’re more likely to stick with something because you have an internal belief that it WILL work out for you. And if you get discouraged, you try and change the situation (or the lucky charm) until you find something that has more luck to it.

The downside to this technique is that it isn’t very scientific and it can make you go a little bit crazy! I’m sure we all know an avid sports fan that has their lucky ritual before or during their teams games…some of these things can be pretty silly!

No matter your preference, whether you’re a believer in hard work or you prefer to try and influence serendipity to your side, I think we can all agree that playing and winning feels good!

But, the only way you can win is if you play…so play some PCHgames today!

How Many Differences Can You Spot?

Hi gamers!

It’s Amanda here, and I’ve got a fun one for you today!

Don’t you just love those “spot the difference” games you find in magazines and newspapers? You know the ones where you stare at side-by-side photos, searching for those little, hard-to-find details? I know I do! Somehow I can never manage to find them all the differences.

Well today we’ve taken that game to the next level by using Prize Patrol Elite team member, Dave Sayer! Want to play? See how many differences you can spot in 5 seconds, and write them in the comments section below!
