Game Simplified

Simplify, simplify, simplify.
-Henry David Thoreau

Everyone reading this must be aware of a concept called Game. If you are not familiar with the term than either you are a natural or you are a recluse who needs to get out more. For most of you the term Game should be self-evident and may conjure up various images of a smooth talking man at a cocktail bar chatting up some doe eyed vixen, while she hangs on his every word. For those of you who grew up in a culture inundated with hip hop, Game might evoke an image of some brash urban lyricist hollering that bitches ain’t shit but hoes and tricks. This was my first introduction to Game and I will always equate not giving a fuck with Game. In order to have good Game one must know what Game is and the easiest way to understand something is to simplify it into its most basic components. As such the following piece in essence will be an attempt to simplify Game.
.
What is Game in reality? There is so much questionable information in the Man-o-sphere and Return of Kings especially, that one can often become lost as to what Game is and how you can practice “good Game.” In many ways listening to others discuss their version of Game ruined my own game. I believe there are several reasons for this. First off, if you become self-conscious of your own actions you often hesitate, and hesitation comes off as nervousness to a woman. This is a huge turn off to her evolutionary instinct to seek out a capable man. Furthermore, after meeting several members of the ROK community, I feel at least 50% embellish their personal experiences. As the old saying goes don’t let the truth get in the way of a good story. For a select few, I feel most of what they claim is in reality complete bullshit, and no one should follow their advice as it does not work but just sounds appealing to aspiring PUAs.
.
I also sense a good portion of the advice given on ROK is dependent on the practitioner. As my father use to say “It’s not the arrow that kills you, it’s the Indian.” This observation also applies to what I have seen of game played out in the real world. You could lack any game whatsoever but if you look like a young Brad Pitt you are going to get attention from the ladies no matter what. On the flip side if you are obese game will not help you though celebrity might.
.
I have seen different gradients of game work for different individuals, under different circumstances. For example if you are a fairly muscle bound individual and look like a gym rat, nice guy game often will get you father than you think. Conversely being aggressive and cocky will work more in your favor if you look non-threatening. So for men that weight 140 pounds or aren’t over 6 foot 4 you might have more success with this strategy. For taller men or simply men who look musclebound you can get away with more of a nice guy approach, as women are less likely to question your dominance. So in this respect much of game could be summed up as different strokes for different folks. However I am attempting to simplify game not make it more complex and to do this I will break it down to its most basic biological components. These components being reproductive strategy and life history strategy.
.
As the various populations of this world evolved to fit different ecological niches they developed different strategies towards reproduction. For populations evolved under the harshest conditions of the last ice age, high paternal investment, pair bonding, altruism and a reserved, inhibited personality was selected for. For populations from warmer climates lower paternal investment, lower pair bonding, lower altruism and more aggressive, uninhibited personalities were selected for.
In the ROK community and various politically incorrect segments of the Manosphere, there is the tendency to classify black men as natural Alphas and conversely Europeans and Northern Asians as being more beta. If we hold the Alpha beta Omega spectrum to be fact than, there is a lot of truth to this statement. But if this is true it must be explained from an evolutionary biology standpoint.
.
In northern regions of the world, especially during the last ice age, food was scarce and the climate harsh. The only food available for most of the year would have been large game like Mammoths, Mastodons, Aurochs and other large extinct mammals. As women were not physically suited to kill such animals with stone weapons, this task fell to men. As such if men of these regions did not stick around after impregnating their women to help feed, clothe and protect their pregnant female partners and offspring, their children would have died and their genes would have died with them. As such there was evolutionary selection for men who empathized and bonded with their women and children. Layman would call this love or in the case of the Manosphere oneitis.
.
Additionally men from Northern climates would have evolved to cooperate and work together with their male peers as it was the only way to hunt such large animals. As such trying to impregnate your fellow tribe member’s woman or constantly fighting with him over women, would not have been a good strategy for the long term survival of your tribe in such a cold climate. Northern forest and arctic tribes have mostly lived by the standard of one man one woman as it allows for cooperation and the manpower needed to both hunt and fight the elements.
.
Conversely men from warmer and especially tropical areas of the world did not need to hang around or invest much in their offspring as the women of these climates could simply gather plant based food or scavenge meat. As such, it was far more advantageous for men from these climates not to pair bond with one partner but instead compete with other men and try and impregnate as many women, as possible as their children stood a good chance of surviving without them around. It should also be noted that tropical diseases led to a high infant and child mortality rate and this would have led toward a tendency toward a higher birth rate to compensate. Populations in between the tropics and colder north would have evolved in between the two extremes. This is especially so in warmer agricultural areas where male investment was higher than in the tropics due to farm work. However the longer growing seasons and more abundant food allowed for polygamy and in turn religions like Islam developed.
.
As many of you reading this probably know, the late great Phillipe Rushton tried to simplify race and ethnic differences in personality, cognition and physical characteristics into a biological spectrum termed R vs K life history strategy. This R vs K spectrum was originally developed by E.O. Wilson to explain the differences in life span, maturation, and paternal investment among organisms. More complex organisms tend to evolve smaller litter sizes, longer childhoods and more paternal investment under conditions where resources are scarce and more care would be required to ensure that each offspring reached adulthood. This R vs K spectrum could be simplified as quantity vs quality of offspring. Although perhaps a better way to simplify it for humans would be uninhibited vs inhibited.
.
If we are to carry this theory over to humanity and in turn game, it would lead to the obvious conclusion that not pair bonding, not caring and acting uninhibited would appear more Alpha and these males would have had a selective advantage in the low paternal investment tropics. Conversely, in the Northern latitudes pair bonding Beta males would have had a reproductive advantage, as they were the only ones who would have cared enough and cooperated enough for their woman and offspring to survive.
.
So my following words of advice in regard to Game might come as a shock to some of you purists. Yet I believe they ring true and allow for the most eloquent oversimplification of game yet. If you want to practice good game simply put on a Lil Wayne song and try to emulate and act like an R selected uninhibited black man. In today’s society where infant mortality is minimal and children will survive with or without a father as Daddy Government will suffice instead, being a nice guy and pair bonding will not get you girls, as it is seem by women as a sign of lower social status instinctually. So remember these words to live by.
