Our games are fierce. We nearly came to fisticuffs last night when Katie played a controversial "MOD-OUT" move, where I called the "you forgot to say UNO" as she was slamming her last card down...that win is definitely asterisked...
We have created a leader board for our tourney, and as soon as we find the chalk, scores will be kept and wins will be celebrated.
Here's a breakdown of our tourney styles (with our leader board names):
LAVS: specializes in "Death By A Thousand Papercuts". Seldom wins, but NO ONE wants to sit next to Lavs. She will murder you again and again with the "draw 2" "wild draw 4" and the "skip" cards.
PIA/ROTCH: Elusive presence at the card table thus far, as she has way too much of a life. But when here, she is a fierce competitor.
CARA/DIES: Deadly. Just Deadly. She does specialize in the "draw 50 cards from the pile until you get the Mod Card", which is a questionable tactic.
KATIE/FOY: The Queen of the well-timed Mod Card. This Gal is unstoppable when she's throwing down the Mod.
TONY/POOH: The Thinker. Always thinking. Venturing close to Big Tony's incredibly slow/irritating pace at cards. But crafty as all get out. He has been kind of crabby the last couple of nights, as his win column remains in the zeroes. We came real close to a repeat of Hadley's "poor sport/knock over the Candyland board" incident...in fact, we've had to invoke the Candyland Board taunt a number of times.
Stay tuned for regular updates on the tourney. It's fiercer than water polo, with more finesse than synchronized swimming, and dirtier than a judo contestant claiming the "accidental pot brownie ingestion".
