Come on, somebody take a risk.

The day went smoothly - breakfast at Qdoba, lunch at a little place called Indy's that we used to go to sometimes and kind of stopped, dinner at McAllister's, and between those, a visit to Who NA, a game of Doctor Who Risk, and all of the Doctor Who DVDs I brought with me. And Hyrule Warriors, in which we unlocked the final non-DLC character and a few more levels. I bought a bunch of Doctor Who novels at Who NA, plus a really neat shirt, a limited edition audio story, and of course, Doctor Who Risk. It's got some neat additions to the standard Risk formula, particularly with a timer that ends the game when it expires, a token that prevents all combat or movement in a particular zone each turn, and cards that determine where you place your armies instead of the players choosing. I lucked out in the game against Mom and got three-fourths of Australia right at the start, so it was easy to pick it up on my first turn. The two-army-per-turn advantage was a big boost in my ability to conquer at least one cheap territory each turn, accumulate cards, and trade them in for a big turn in which I conquered most of the world. Risk has a huge positive feedback loop for small advantages. I also seem to be a pretty good Risk strategist. Mom went for a few territories in Asia on her first turn and left South America for her second, which let me sweep through most of Africa in short order. Now the trick will be finding people to play with back home.


Yes, I'm THAT Nidoking. Sometimes I write fanfiction... often I waste all my time playing video games and watching anime. But it's not a waste if I enjoy it, right? I can quote from a movie, video game, anime series, or British comedy apropos of just about any situation, and one of my main goals in life is to entertain people. (The other big one is amassing as much anime and manga as I can... see below for a progress report.) That's me in a nutshell. ("Help! I'm trapped in a nutshell! What a bloody great nutshell this is!")
