And for the triple-post win (unless someone ninjas this), ALL of the words mentioned are actually both nouns and verbs.

Game (verb): Play games of chance for money; play video or computer games; manipulate (a situation), typically in a way that is unfair or unscrupulous.

Golf (verb): Play golf.

Bowl (verb): Roll a ball (or hoop) along the ground; play the game of bowling; move rapidly and smoothly in a specified direction.

Guess I was wrong about the definition. Still, it's silly to call yourself a gamer in my opinion.
Russian is my first language, so yes there may be a spelling error or two.

To Love : Lover...
To Sleep: Sleeper...
To Sin: Sinner...
To Rule: Ruler...
To Game: Gamer...
To Play: Player...

Or you could go it this way:

To Govern: Governor...
To Dominate: Dominator...
To Impersonate: Impersonator...
To Counsel: Counselor...

It's actually the most basic way to form nouns out of verbs that apply to action verbs.

I'm confused... are you saying that the definition of "counselor" is "to counsel?" Because that sure isn't the case. A counselor is "one who counsels." Same for every single word you posted - the "to" should be replaced with "one who," and each word should have an s on the end. One who loves. One who games.

No, he's giving how you would modify each verb in order to make it a noun, just as you did above.

Ah. I get it. I guess it was just worded in a confusing way.
