Good day, folks. This should be my first post here. Here's hoping I don't end up breaking the rules too quickly, eh?
Anyhow, so here's the deal: I got a little silly bit of trivia to ask, mostly out of curiosity... Also because I know I can't actually do relating to this myself due to not having the means by which to even attempt, and even if I could, I'd risk drawing the ire of multiple beings. Would any spiritual creatures at all, for lack of any way to describe them all, be interested in playing some of the classic tabletop games we folks have, if given the possibility? If so, which? I don't mean things like Dungeons and Dragons, of course, even if that'd be interesting to see too - I more so mean things like Chess.
Not gonna ask about plain human spirits - they're likely not too different than they were in life. Fae, dragons and what else people can think of here. As much as a fascination as I may have with the first one of those, I fear they are among the least likely to be into it, given how they're typically not fond of our creations, especially the more modern ones. I also feel angels and demons are most likely to be more interested in other, more productive things at any given time. But what about the rest? And what if I am mistaken? Perhaps you folks have some spirits you're close to that you could ask that question, or some insight to share on the matter?
Thank you for your time, looking forward to your responses!
I don't know what rules have to do about any of this, besides them being necessary to actually play instead of flinging pieces around like little children...
I already know that spiritual beings would, of course, not really be capable of doing things physically. At least, not without a proxy. The question I am asking is simply how interested various forms of them would be. Since there's always a difference in interests between individuals, as you would expect with any form of entity, more of a frequency sort of deal. You already answered generally about demons in particular - while someone may clarify at some point, now the rest remain.
To sum up, I guess the question would be "How likely are each sort of spiritual creature to be interested in playing traditional board games?"
As to why I'm asking this, since it appears I initially neglected to give a reason... People typically bond over doing things together, do they not? So why not spirits as well?
As for if it's a question worth answering... Don't get me wrong, I know this is a rather inconsequential question I have, as much as I may want to know the detailed answer. That said, it's really up to the one(s) answering to decide if a question is worth answering, isn't it?

Games in general are played by many different types of beings and in my experience I often sense different spirits while I play games with other physical beings. This includes board games as well as more physically active games and even video games. In my experience they often play these games through physical beings by encouraging them to; play, play a certain way, to be a sore looser, to be a tactful winner, or even to quit. They can also influence the "chance" aspects of games, like the roll of the dice or what card is drawn next. It really depends on the spirit how they will influence a game and the beings playing it.Sometimes the spiritsjust like to watch and see what unfolds however they can also protect a game from being influenced by other spirits who perhaps want to cause chaos or ill will.
My guardians love video games, board game, rpgs. If there's a person willing to play with them, they're, errr... game. I generally don't play with them because I can't see what they're doing, but they do play with each other. I often hear them playing. It's quite comical, really.
