10 Victory Points!

Yesterday was Corbin's birthday and we did one of my favorite things to do; we played a board game!! Maybe most of my friends don't know this about me but I love to play board games. I play with my family all the time, it was pretty much all I did over winterbreak in fact. Last year Matt louv and I played Monopoly kind of often, and that was awesome. In high school Nathan and I played pretty often, the problem was finding people who would play with us, cause monopoly isn't very fun with only two people. Recently I have just been starved of any board game action. But anyways last night at Charlie's we played Settlers of Catan which I had never played before. Lauren and I were on a team and we totally won! I really liked the game and now that I completely understand it I want to play again cause I might go about things pretty differently. 

I still think that I prefer Monopoly, and mostly because you have to rely on other people so much more. I think my favorite aspect of board games is when you have to manipulate the people around you and get them to help you out more than you help them out. You definitely will play a better game if you are trading with other players, but it isn't as neccesary as in Monopoly, also the main thing to trade is resources and although throughout the game some resources are seen as more valuable than others, there are all pretty much weighed the same and usually just traded resource to resource. 

I like the varying degree of property you can own in Monopoly because it makes things more interesting. Like although Boardwalk and Park Place are the most "valuable" monopoly on the board, we all know they don't always pay off because they are extremely expensive to build on and are rarely landed on. One might think it more wise to spend their energy building on the grey properties (thats right, grey!), which are often landed on. But the person with the grey monopoly can get landed on like 5 times before they match the distructive power of Boardwalk, and we all know taking out all of someone's money at one time is better than doing slowly throughout a game.  

Okay, I am done nerding out!

So last night Matt gave Corbin and I a ride home. As we were going across the fourth avenue bridge a cop pulls over us over. Apparently Matt was going a little too fast. The cop took Matts info, where he realized Matt went to Evergreen, and ran it. He came back to the car and said something along the lines of "Well I am not going to give you a ticket because you have to go to such an awful school." Now I probably appreciate cops more than the average Evergreen student, but come one! Dick move officer. I want a job where I can just be a fucker and no one can tell me off because I have a fucking gun and handcuffs. Wouldn't that be lovely. Well he didn't give Matt a ticket, so whatever.
