Good luck with achieving your 200th win. Though I do worry you are setting yourself up for that most horrendous of eventualities: the extremely public failure. If you lose, one must assume you will create a new thread and no doubt many (not me of course...oh no) will desire to play. But what if you yet again crash and burn with the regularity that only standard escalating players can really achieve? Do you continue with the public thread? Do nasty trolls (not me of course...oh no) start naming you 'hospital case' Robinette? Do you become known as the 'girl who kept losing? I remember your 23 game losing streak. Who could forget it? I wept for you as much as I prayed for your gaming soul. The dice gods were not kind to you then and it was whispered - probably by my more zealous bretheren in the Order of the Naked Dice - that they punished you for your vanity, as well as your promotion of a standard game that has turned risk into but a glorified version of checkers.
Of your 3 remaining candidates may I suggest woodruff for cannon fodder and have the other two face off in a best of 3 on the most unsuitable settings you can find. My suggestion would be freestyle, standard, trench, no cards, fog on Hive.
It's good fun raining on a parade isn't it Mr.?
The name is Changsha. Mr Ching Chong Chop Sooki Karate Changsha. Which means Mr 'in the land of the bloated panda one can never find a matching pair of chopsticks'.
We here in China understand the dangers of a self-inflicted public humiliation. It is all very well being the best at maths, but when one has lingered at the bottom of the global penile average tables for 5000 years one understands the desperate misery of unzipping oneself for public consumption.
For the slow ones at the back, in this analogy Robinette is the penis, the zipper is standard escalating risk while maths has always been and will continue to be a public humiliation.
Interestingly and amazingly also true, while I have a nicely slim 32 inch waist my underwear size here is EXTRA LARGE. This is but one of the many reasons why living in china is tops.
