Ever since I joined Gauntlet my expectations for games are going up and up.
Every now and then I try to play with new people and new groups either offline or online, sometimes those groups are awesome and I want to play more, sometimes those are just weak games.
System and creative agenda excluded.
Weak game for me is when I think after a game that I should have stayed home and watched Netflix or played a boardgame instead.
But on the other hand people (both GMs and players) need to learn and here comes my question.
How do you find a balance between playing weak games with hopes that over time those games will get better or not playing to spend time elsewhere? Is it even possible to find such balance?
I like to think that I run good sessions now, but it was not always so and I need people to play with me so that I could learn, I want to return the favour, but it is hard.
