We went to visit another young couple in our church last night, and ended up playing a game of Risk. Now, Risk isn’t necessarily my favorite game, though I do enjoy a game of mission Risk every now and then. I think the last time I played was back at school with some guys. They were quite shocked that a GIRL wanted to play Risk! I don’t really enjoy the World Conquer version of Risk, however, mainly because it looks like an impossible goal for me! And besides, usually it seems to take forever and I don’t have the patience for it! Last night the guys wanted to play World Conquer, not Mission Risk. *sigh* So we girls, being the loving, considerate, patient, self-sacrificing wives that we are, acquiesced. Just because we love them! I prepared myself for about 4 rounds of the game — that’s usually as long as I survive in World Conquer. I consider my short-lived Risk life a success if I take down a few men, put up a fight, and give them a bit of a speed bump on their way to conquering the world! Trying to win? Ha! No, I don’t really even try.
Imagine my surprise when I was actually able to wipe out the other guy who kept tormenting me and attacking me and stealing my continent by taking North Africa every turn! And then I was able to wipe out Jerry! And then it was just us two GIRLS playing!?!?!? Whoa! This is NOT typical! So I wiped her out after I cashed in with Jerry’s cards and proceeded to take over the world.
I wish my brothers had been there to see it. It was amazing. The second time in my life that I have ever won World Conquer Risk. I should’ve taken a picture!
