    Default Hesitant To Use Game Center

    I am a 49 yo woman gamer. I'm not great at games, I don't spend hours playing them. But I miss the fun I used to have playing when my kids were around and would indulge me in a game (mostly for their own entertainment to beat my ***). I have been afraid to start with game center because I don't know anyone personally who uses the service. But what worries me most is that I want fair, fun gameplay with people who aren't interested in kicking my **** just because they are "pros" at the game. Is there a way to filter users who are similar experience levels as myself? I just don't have any idea how to go about this or if it is possible. Thanks for any help!

    What I do is add friends first from Facebook and contact list and add requests that come thru then you will start getting req from others connected to the new people you add. There is no problem to delete someone afterward. Especially if you have no games in common.

    Playing for pleasure, rather than for winning has always been the point for me and I try to instil that into my children.

    The 'competitive' nature of players in GameCentre varies from game to game but I get the most enjoyment from the online play of "board game" conversions such as:

    Ticket to Ride
    Carcassonne
    Ascension
    Lost Cities

    If you want to add me to play any of these games, feel free. (GC name is the same as my iMore name)
