The Tao of Gaming

Boardgames and lesser pursuits

Another interesting idea — Alien Problems

I saw this poker article and thought “That’s a generally applicable idea.”

You would’ve called there, right, Matt? …

My response to this question is, yes; if I had somehow found myself in that situation, I would’ve called. But the only way I could’ve ended up in that situation is if I had fallen out of a spaceship and been flung into my seat

I call problems like [that] “alien problems.”

Games rarely so clean cut, but it’s still a good idea: Is your current situation the result of a poor decision earlier? Focus your strategy thoughts where they matter.
