I don't know about you guys, but after a big dinner party it's kind of fun to sit down with a group of friends and play a nice board game over a beer or three. It doesn't matter whether it's Risk, or Scrabble, or even just Monopoly. Every once in a while it's fun to just play a very simple kids board game and unwind.
We've found that when we do this, though, certain things always just seem to happen. Like, for example, there's always someone that loses within 30 minutes of playing, and is forced to sit through the entire rest of the game as nothing more than a very bored spectator.
Worst of all for this quick loser is that the game always lasts an eternity. And this is in no way helped by the one guy who's too busy doing everything else but playing the game.
And he's also flirting with someone's wife.
So this game will invariably last until 2 in the morning. Not just because of the straggler, but because of that one over-competitive asshole who just refuses to let it end until he's declared the winner.
But worry not, because immediately after the proclamation that he's going to win, the guy who doesn't give a shit overtakes the competitive asshole and wins the game on the spot.
And really, that's why we as adults still play kids board games. Because they're just so darn fun.
Cheers and stay classy, friends,
