Buckets

A man has not truly mastered Game until he has begun to fill all his buckets.

I’ve mastered a number of skills in my life, and I’m of the opinion that being well-rounded does more for learning and skill crossover than focusing almost completely on one tactic or technique.

I think of the different types of Game as buckets filled with sand. As I read, share, and field test, my buckets fill up.

After two years of grinding, I consider myself an expert in online game. My bio and photos have been perfectly optimized. I know more about the Tinder algorithm than perhaps only Tinder employees, their friends, and maybe several hundred people worldwide. I know what works, what doesn’t, how to message, how to swipe, how to hack the system, hell, I’ve messaged with so many girls, I can even tell a catfish just by the way they text.

The problem with online game is that it involves minimal game. You get a system down, you use your blueprint-specific messaging sequence, the girls all respond in the same way, then you get her out on the date and run “don’t fuck it up” game. For sure, there are a myriad of different situations and girls you can run into, enough to keep it fun, but overall, it’s very formulaic.

Formulaic, rote systems destroy learning. Spontaneity and new experiences create opportunities for learning. And, as I wrote about in the second paragraph, stepping back and coming at skills from different angles often results in skill crossover – I’ve found that my daygame has gotten better from the few nightgame sessions I’ve done so far. This year, I’m going to set my online game on cruise control and focus on filling my other buckets.

In that interest, I’ve made a list of all the different game buckets I think exist:

  • Online game
    • Online fucking apps/sites
      • Threesome game
        • Fake threesome game
      • Headless photo and explicit bio game
    • Social media game (Instagram/Snapchat)
    • Sugar daddy game
      • Salt daddy game
  • Daygame
    • Street game
    • Venue game
    • Special event game (festivals, etc.)
      • Hired gun game
  • Nightgame
    • Club game
      • Promoter/table game
      • Hired gun game
    • Bar/lounge game
    • Stripper game/Escort (shoring) game
    • Threesome game/girl wing game
  • Social circle/social proof game
    • Friends group game
    • Setup game/party host game (Bilzerian, etc.)
    • Work game
    • Leader of the group game (lead singer in a band, instructor in a class, etc.)
    • Activity game (Meetup, etc.)
      • Language exchange game
    • AirBnB/Couchsurfing game
    • Coke game

What am I missing?

    Those are the four big buckets and that’s a thorough list. Only thing you could add would be under social circle / activity game – things where you’re the “alpha male of the group” like being a DJ / singer in a band or the instructor in a class with lots of women, etc. Good ecosystems if you can set them up.

  2. Pancake… hey man. Very good to see you yesterday.

    >> I’m of the opinion that being well-rounded does more for learning and skill crossover than focusing almost completely on one tactic or technique.

    I agree.

    I’m sold on daygame… but I am doing more “incidental” daygame (where I approach when I’m out/about), and I did a LOT of CAFE GAME in Japan (hitting on girls in Starbucks… and especially waiting until they leave, then running after them… and treating it like normal street approach).

    With all that said, I told you I did 1 and only 1 night of nightgame in Japan… but I was better than I have ever been. I knew the structure better… but most… I knew how to escalate a girl quickly. I was screening, leading, escalating… tried to take her home.

    The HEAVY STUDY at daygame… made it easier for me to find competency at nightgame.

    CROSSOVER training… it’s a great idea.

    1. I’ve been doing a lot more incidental daygame too. The sessions, even the ones where I didn’t open a single girl, were not for naught. My skills continue to improve to where I have the instinct to open when going about my daily business.

  3. I will challenge this a slight bit. You come up with all these buckets and did not explain why you have them.

    I’ve also been thinking about transitioning to being a daygamer versus online gamer. Specifically to address latent social anxiety and to challenge myself.

    What are you really trying to do, what’s your motivation to learn all variations of game? If you want to round out all skills in life in general, how are you at fitness, fighting, making money, etc?

    1. Added a paragraph that explains more: “Formulaic, rote systems destroy learning. Spontaneity and new experiences create opportunities for learning. And, as I wrote about in the second paragraph, stepping back and coming at skills from different angles often results in skill crossover – I’ve found that my daygame has gotten better from the few nightgame sessions I’ve done so far.”

      Also, I believe that to truly create abundance, you need to have leads coming in from all avenues. I want to become a man that integrates Game into his daily life, where I can look at every situation and have an experience I can reference where I turned that into a notch in the past. That demonstrates true mastery, and is my overall goal.

      Fitness and making money I’m set on. Fighting I’ve never seen the need for, but it’s something I think about on occasion. Will probably be a future obsession.

    My bucket that I need to fill is daygame two-sets, I am noticing more, in San Francisco, cute girls come in pairs.

    (But, to be honest I did not fill almost any of those other buckets of yours.)

    I’ve thought about this extensively so I’ll throw in my 2cents.

    The major buckets are all there.

    In my opinion, the final goal is to game your targets wherever they are. This way, you eventually become free from being restricted by “Which bucket am I in?” to “Game on”.

    That said, there are definitely differences in game styles in the buckets. DG is simply different from NG.

    Sure, you can do NG-style game in DG, but it is simply not necessary & mis-calibration can lead to shooting yourself in the foot. Criss-crossing styles (NG in DG or DG in NG) is fine on the opening, but that means more calibration is needed afterwards to compensate. So in the end, the venue DG or NG will dictate your calibration so might as well open according to whether it’s DG or NG.

    I also see the buckets more as access to leads you wouldn’t otherwise have. 8-10s aren’t restricted to DG, NG, or online. So I am not a die-hard DG, NG, or online gamer. I use them all to expand my access. This builds versatility.

    Like you, NG has helped my DG & vice versa. Online has helped my text game for Day 2 leads I accumulate from DG/NG.

    Also, for group approaches (2 sets, mixed sets, etc.) it’s a good practice to just approach initially even if you have no clue how to proceed. I’ve been through more blowouts than I can count, but through it all you’ll find simply that some of the targets in the group will hook & you can proceed from there. The “group” approach then becomes less intimidating.

    I solo opened a group of 5-7 tall British models in Vegas at a party once. 2 of them hooked so I just chose one to continue the interaction further with one of them. The other girls then paired off in conversations so the conversation just became me & my target. As you can see, group dynamics can auto-correct & work in your favor so no need to entertain the whole group tirelessly through the whole interaction.

  6. I think there is one more bucket, which is a “travel game”, meaning game when you are visiting a city for a very short time. Time limit affects the game in a major way, at least for me – you don’t have time for many tries, so you might have to actually pre-select to avoid flakes and increase high %age prospects, book dates differently (multiples in one day), play differently (no time for Blackdragon two date close, I think), close differently (getting them to a hotel room is different then getting them to your place), etc.
