last night at rachel and elena's mega famous gamenight, we played diplomacy. we quit well in advance of anyone completely winning. i am regularly surprised by the hour at which some people get to the can't continue on stage of tiredness.
anyway, as the self-appointed dictator of austria-hungary, i felt most comfortable allying with italy (rachel) and france (jon) simply because i was sitting between them. oh yeah -- and they're fantastic comrades.
i guess i can see how the game was about to become fun. once the evil russians started attacking, i felt a bit more interested in not losing.
