So it’s a good thing I don’t lose very often.  Some people might say that I stack the deck by rarely attempting to do things I suck at, but I prefer to think of that as my way of maintaining the integrity of the competition.  I prefer to stick to what I know.  For example, I’m an above average mini-golfer.  Any time, anywhere, I will do my best to kick your ass.  All other incarnations of golf – don’t even bother.  The last time I played pitch-n-putt the only thing I pitched was my 9 iron into the woods out of frustration.

Due to my competitive nature I’ve earned a bit of a reputation among my friends.  When we play board games, I’m usually the one who is given the position of moderator.  I get stuck being Bob Barker only without the cool skinny microphone – and the spade and neutor jokes get old really fast.

I recall a conversation I once had with my husband about board games (It was on the way home from the cranium incident where I made the drunk girl cry because she wasn’t taking the game seriously):

Bri:  You know Al, not everyone plays board games just so they can win.

Ally:  That’s idiotic.  Why else would you play?

Bri:  Because some people play for fun.

Woah.  Woah.  Woah.  Since when is winning NOT fun?  That sounds like something that people who lose all the time say.

In fact, it is something a loser would say.  Perhaps a self proclaimed Star Wars fanatic who LOST Star Wars trivial pursuit?  Or maybe someone who can’t seem to beat his wife in a game of oh I dont know… Risk?

In recent memory, he turned down an opportunity for a board game night with coworkers because he didn’t “have a chance to warn people” about me.  It’s not like I do a little dance or sing a victory song.  Is it so wrong to expect nothing but the best from my teammates?  Should I not give it my best?

In the words of Vince Lombardi, “winning isn’t everything, it’s the only thing”.  Unless, of course, I’ve lost.
