Nerding it Up

The wife and I have had about the dorkiest week in human history. We watched the first two "Lord of the Rings" movies this week (extended editions of course), and plan on watching the third one soon, possibly tonight. But that's not the worst part.

Last night, and on Sunday, we stayed up way too late playing the game of Risk. If you're unfamiliar, Risk is a classic board game in which the sole purpose is to take over the world. You get armies and roll dice to have battles with other players. We got it as a gift at our wedding. It's really fun. However, we spent hours playing this dorky game. Last night, we didn't even finish. My little sister played, too, and we put the game on hold after we knocked her out. I also find it really amusing that children all over the country are playing this game, learning how to be little Hitlers. Or "Lit'lers" as I call them.

I rate the game Risk: Ten armies, tradeable for a ten army piece (cool inside Risk reference).

The last time Dan and I played this was a few years back- we played the computer version. By fluke, I won very quickly. He was so mad he didn't speak to me for the rest of the night and a good part of the following day. Be careful, that's all I'm saying...
