    Generally at the beginning of a game I say 'G'day' or 'Let's play' or something pretty mundane.

    What are some of the first responses you've received?

    I just had "Yes, let's have chess pleasure"

    ...thought, yep that's about right.

    'Loser' has it's merits it would add a large incentive not to be one. A motivator.

    'Thanks for the invite'; or 'Hi, how have you been'; or a comment on the last move of the previous game.

    Never got first hello in that style yet. (Only in the game title if that counts.)

    ...
    Got one final last response, however ("Well played"😉.

    Sounds as if your games are serious competitions; mine at this point are casual and conversational (often unrated).
