Albert Bandura has noted that an individual’s skills such as cognitive, attitudes and abilities comprised as self-system. The self-system has a huge role in how a person perceives the situation around them and in turn, behaves to the scenarios as a response (Bandura A. , 1977).

This is when self-efficacy plays a major role in a person’s approach in different challenges, tasks and goals (Bandura A., 1992). As for this board game, a player with a strong self-efficacy will view the board game as a challenge that need to be won, have good interest in the game they are currently playing, will be able to develop a strong commitment towards the board game and recover at once from any disappointments if punished during the game (Bandura A., 1977).
