Loyd, Chris, and I played a game of Cities and Knights tonight. I was a point from winning when Chris took his turn. He took my merchant and my longest road for the win after manipulating all his cards. The last five or so games I've played I've been one point away from winning when someone else rips my heart out and takes the win (usually Chris). Oh well he has a gift for that. If you are competitive and love playing games, Chris and Loyd are very fun to play with. We all get worked up. Ticket to ride is a second favorite game of ours. It's quick paced and competitive.
And it wouldn't be a game with me if I didn't do something poor sportish....
Loyd who was losing miserably the whole time says on my turn when I'm so close to winning, "winner cleans up." I didn't have any problems with that, no one did. Not at all. But when Chris took the win and I walked out a little disappointed that I lost and happy that "winner cleans up" I got the 3rd degree.
What's up with that?
