What Gamer Type are You?
1. The zombie apocalypse is upon us! What's your preferred method of survival?
You've watched movies on this. Grab your cricket bat and head for the nearest pub.
You've been waiting for this day. Time to head out and start wracking up the kill count.
Defend your base and command targeted missions out into the affected area.
Stock up on the essentials and try to cope with the situation.
Gather your friends together and hope you all make it. Somehow.
2. You're planning for a big evening party at your house. Where is your focus for it during the hours beforehand?
Whatever extra steps are necessary to make sure it's memorable.
Cleaning up the place and hiding the breakables.
Sending out last minute invitations and directions.
Making a great playlist.
Prep..ar..a..tion? None needed. These things just work themselves out.
Shopping to make sure you'll have enough food and drink for the guests.
3. Your game was supposed to last two hours. It's currently going on hour number four with no sign of stopping. What do you do?
You burnt through all your strategies awhile ago. Now it's time for an all-out assault with the few pieces you have left.
You're not sure how you've lasted this long, but you keep going. Now's the time to get really creative.
If the game is developing in a fun way, you want to see where it ends up next.
Continue to acquire resources and build your troops. With enough forces, you could launch a final attack to end it all.
You don't complain. Supposedly, your elaborate turns and complex moves are the reason you're running so late to begin with.
What? Oh. Um...you stopped paying full attention about 3.5 hours ago.
4. Which of the following game types seems the most appealing to you?
One with a good degree of chance
One with a variety of tactics
One with multiple paths to victory
One with clear goals
One with high player interactions
One with a rich story background
5. If you could pick one of these game shows to be on, which would it be?
Wheel of Fortune
Who Wants to Be A Millionaire
Deal or No Deal
The Price is Right
6. Another player backstabs you at the beginning of a game. How do you react?
You don't know without more detail, as it would depend on many factors.
Tease them mercilessly for the rest of the night.
Fortify your defenses, and build your strength until someone else weakens the other player. Then, strike with minimal losses.
Plan cold, hard revenge.
It was well-played. You mostly ignore the strike and move on.
7. It's a boring day at work. What are you doing to keep yourself from falling asleep?
Chatting with your friends.
Clicking your pen. Repeatedly.
Catching up on a bunch of little tasks that slipped through the cracks.
Planning ahead. There might be something you can do now to save you some time when you're busy again.
Re-organizing office supplies.
8. Well, you didn't play that very well. You've made a rather significant miscalculation, and now you don't stand a chance of victory. How do you cope?
Try to rebuild your wealth. You may not finish with the gold, but you still won't give up the chance at silver.
Laugh it off.
You might not be able to win, but you'll last until the end. Shore up your defenses and sit out the siege.
Curse yourself, and spend the rest of the game annoying the remaining players.
You wish you could remember what you did so that you won't make the same mistake twice, but alas. Moving on..
Mental note - 'that did not work'. You won't do that again, but now is a good time to try out some other strategy.
9. Your dungeon-crawling adventuring party has come upon a treasure chest. What do you hope to find inside?
A detailed map for the rest of the dungeon
High quality gear
A quest-related item
A disgruntled gnome
Tomes containing lost history of the region
10. You and your colleagues / classmates have been assigned a paper that's due in a week. How do you approach the task?
Dig into the pile of references you already have picked out.
Find a collaborator to talk about your plans.
Once you're comfortable with your resources, you find yourself a nice quiet corner and hammer it all out.
Collect yourself and your materials, analyze the information you have, and start mapping a mental outline.
Grab a blank page and just start writing.
You give yourself a day for research, a day for organizing, and a day to write it.
11. Your friend brings over a brand new game for this week's game night and the box really impresses you. What do you like most about it?
It appears to be a fairly short, fast-paced game.
All the different races, classes, and buildings laid out on the front.
The cleverly written description on the back.
For 5-20 players! We can all play at once!
It has a nice clear objective posted.
Nothing. The box doesn't matter as long as the game is good.
12. Of those listed, what was your favorite childhood game?
Red Light, Green Light
Duck, Duck Goose
Hide and Seek
13. You're nearing the end of a lengthy game, and you will win on your final move. However, in order to win you'll have to betray a long-term ally. What are you thinking?
I didn't originally think I had a shot, but since I'm here...
It really depends on the circumstances.
Nah. It's only a game.
I'll do it only if I absolutely have to, and only if I'm safe from retribution.
I'd prefer not to, but I've invested too much to stop now.
In a heartbeat. It was an alliance of convenience anyway.
14. It's 1869 and you're arriving in a bustling frontier town from back east. What sort of job do you seek out?
Taverns are always fun, regardless of the era.
I didn't come for a job. My intent is to find a nice piece of land and build a new home for myself.
Whichever one pays me the most.
As a jack of all trades, I'll go for whatever occupation the town is in the most need for.
Banking is ideal for me in this new location.
A job on the railroad to keep from being in any one place too long.
