Here's something I find very amusing.
First, I'll start off with this. A while back, I watched this episode of Tabletop
on YouTube. It's a web series on the Geek and Sundry channel hosted by Wil Wheaton. He plays different board games with different people that are for the most part publically well-known.
This one episode has one of my fave YouTuber dudes, Ryan Higa (his channels being nigahiga and HigaTV), playing against Wil, Rod Roddenberry, and Freddie Wong in three quick and easy to play games; Zombie Dice, Tsuro, and Get Bit. (Zombie Dice and Tsuro I've definitely played more than once. They're great gateway games! Get Bit looks like a fun little card game, and I hope to play that one day.)
In this 32 minute long episode, Ryan won all three! (For example; they shouldn't have kept goading him to keep rolling on his first turn in Zombie Dice. He had the magic fingers for sure, scoring ten brains, and nobody could do any better in the final rolls once he got to fourteen brains. That never
happens with anyone in my gaming group!) Here's the episode if you'd like to check it out sometime: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NMtlQxJeWvc
Whenever someone in my gaming group has a winning streak, sometimes we joke that they have a lucky horseshoe somewhere on them. Sometimes one of us says something like, "All right, give up the horseshoe.", or "May I borrow your horseshoe?" There were even a few times in which one of us said, "I've got a magnet, so I can steal some of their luck."
In that webisode I saw twice already, Ryan was hogging a horseshoe of his own. XD
This Friday night, my mom and I were playing two rounds of two great games; two of Splendor and two of this really cute and funny press-your-luck card game called Ugh. You try to score as many sets of points as you can before the drawing deck is depleted. When you draw an Ugh Card first, you have to discard the number it reads on it and keep the Ugh Card as three points (as a consolation prize) for the very end of the game.
It was funny when I quickly used a Wild Card to steal the high number card she had just drawn, only to be discarded after getting an Ugh Card on my next turn.
I won at everything tonight, by the way. I pulled a Ryan Higa on my mom! I almost never get that lucky! XD If it happens again around anyone, I'll continue to call it "pulling a Ryan Higa". XD
I enjoy that guy's sense of humor. He's adorably funny! His friends he films mostly comedy videos with are just as much. They all seem really nice and cool--people I'd get along very well with. When they're playing against one another at video games for example, they're just as humorously competitive as some of my gaming friends. :)
