I have been playing now for about 2 years with the same group of people which most i consider now as friends.
Some of the at the end of each game still offer their hand for the 'nice game' hand shake and i was just wondering...
Even when i do loose the game i have no bad feelings agaisnt any of them, its just a game, but personally I just don't feel the need for the hand shake whether i lose or win.
What about you out there, when you play against friend do you still have the hand shake or it's all fun and no problem... i'll get me revenge next game???

Sometimes our group does. If it was a very good close game we always do. I will say we only do so when we really want to and not because we feel it is an obligation.
The fire's going out...pass me another heretic.
We normally don't do that. It's more of a politeness thing I guess, done when you're playing against someone you don't or hardly know, but unnecessary in friendly games with mates.

I dare not touch the palms of most of the players I battle with. I honestly try not to think about where it’s been.
No my preferred end of game response is a few hand gestures of other sorts if I've lost or the phrase "You dick! You just lost to a girl" in winning circumstances. I find these just as effective and pleasing.
Among friends I tend not to do anything like that, perhaps a small dose of trash talking. At tournaments I always shake hands and learn the name of my opponent, sometimes I actually remember it. Getting to know your local tournament players helps with sportsmanship scores in later tournaments.
well my gaming group usually has 4000 point mega battles with and we never ever finsih a game. we usually just try to ahve fun, and dont usually shake hands. during tournaments (official or a tourney from the store i play at) i always shake their hands, wheather i win or lose.
<insert witty remark here>
if i win im to busy making fun of my opponent to shake there hand and if i loose im crying in the corner

usually the people i play with can't really stand by the end of a game, due to either excessive alcohol consumtion, or the fact that they have drawn a little dorito face in the dip and are laughing with cannabis fueled brains.
but we usually just say 'ach bugger it'...or 'WHOS YOUR DADDY?!' at the end of a game depending on the outcome
Never judge someone until you've walked a mile in their shoes...by that time they'll be a mile away, and have no shoes
What I usually do amongst the people I play with is to say, hey, nice game. Then we discuss each of our mistakes, and try to improve both of our armies for a battle next time.
Shaking hands with my buds is really unnecessary; sometimes I even forget. However, if it was a REALLY good and close game, I'd shake the hand of anybody. It is always an honor to play with a veteran gamer (as long as they're not a-holes).
So yeah, shaking hands is not an obligation. However, amongst strangers, I do it out of politeness (agains, unless they are a-holes).
"And whoever wants to be a creator in good and evil, must first be an annihilator and break values. Thus the highest evil belongs to the greatest goodness: but this is--being creative."
~ Friedrich Nietzsche ~
I always shake hands with the player after the game, no matter the result. It's only a game, it's not right to get all pouty about it.
