Spring, 1942

My friend Mike and I just started a game of Axis and Allies. A+A is a WWII “simulation game”, the term being used rather loosely here. We’ve been playing since junior high.

I’m playing the Allies, Mike’s playing the Axis. He’s already started his trash-talk, asking me if I wanted to surrender before we began the game. Yeah. Ok, Mike. Hope you don’t mind seeing Berlin and Tokyo made into parking lots. Nuremberg trials anyone?

It may take us a few days to finish the game. I’ll keep you updated on how it goes.

    True Fact: in college, my fellow mathaletes and I calculated a formula for winning Axis & Allies [and no, we weren’t all virgins]. I am now accepting bribes in return for my secret knowledge…

    I can score you a date with Magus, now talk! Send me an email…

    I’m but an old fool. She still has hope. Let her be…

    Steak, Yeungling, and a round of mini-golf…

    Being that I’m 35 Foxtrot, Military Intel Analyst, a prime trait that I must possess is thinking like the enemy and suggesting appropriate action to battle commanders.

    So.

    I erased Suzie’s answer, having stored the needed knowledge to defeat the Fascist and Shinto regimes controlled by Rozos.

    Brilliant.

    We still on for mini-golf?

    Yes, we most definitely are. Wouldn’t miss it for the world 🙂

    Poor Rozos though, he was, technically, the highest bidder. Can you give him a consolation prize? Like an extra camel or something?

  8. April 17, 2008 at 12:38 am

    I wouldn’t do that to the camel…

    Aw, Doug, you fight dirty 😉

    We’re on to video games for now as one of Mike’s harem members called and talked for 40 minutes….

    We shall continue our Great War tomorrow…

    Aw cut Rozos a break, you got to let a player play.

    Big points for admitting you play video games 🙂

    …And be sure to let me know how swift and total your domination of Axis & Allies is.

    Alas.

    Seems his concubine has made him weak–he’s already off to bed after being thrashed several times by CPU soldiers in GRAW…wish his playing constituted shooting a virtual rifle well.

    Next time, Mike, I’m sniper.

    Ugh. I mean doing THE real thing.

  15. April 17, 2008 at 2:12 am

    Yeah–cyber just doesn’t cut it…

    You know, I’m sure you didn’t mean it the way I heard it, but that sounded incredibly suggestive.

    Right. 😉
