Post Hypothetical

Say you are playing a game of internet checkers, you have five pieces left, but no matter what move you make something will die and they will continue to die till you loose. Though as your opponent takes your second to last piece he/she offers a draw. Now it is your turn, what will you do? (Refer to the poll, though do repond to topic, I am curious as how you will feel as well as act).

i think i'd start off with not moving just to get the other player annoyed, but eventually i'd move and lose.
the different between losing and drawing isnt really a life changing thing so i'd lose and be like "yeah alright you won, want another game?"

If it was some kind of competition I'd accept a draw, (On the basis that a draw probably gets you more points than a loss) but then, in a competition, you would hardly offer a draw.

Any other situation I'd refuse the draw, move and lose, and that's what I voted for.

it's an online game of checkers. to me, it's a meaningless game. i said i'd accept the draw, but chances are i'd probably not even see him offer the draw and i'd move.

as it is, i suck at checkers anyways, haha

Deek, the version I took this idea from makes sure you would see the draw (Infact you can't move till you accept of decline).

Though when I actually tried this out I seen a lot of people get really worked up.

Death Metal fan in Egypt, Sadek works from the knowledge that the Egyptian state perceived both Death Metal and religious fundamentalism as threats to its power and legitimacy
