My husband loves to play board games and he’s very good and very competitive. BT (before twins) we would play games or cards pretty frequently and I lost. A lot. Probably most of the time. I miss playing those games with him but I don’t miss being a loser.
These days, when hubster wants to torture me, he makes me play Rock Paper Scissors. I lose almost Every. Single. Time. This absolutely cracks him up and drives me bonkers.
When I ran across this video on How to Win at Rock Paper Scissors I became almost giddy.
I can’t wait for him to get home tonight so I can win and then gloat for the rest of the evening.
This Washington Post article details strategies for winning at a variety of other games as well. Sadly, Risk* (hubster’s favorite game ever) is not on the list, but with some secret study, late at night, I might eventually feel ready to whup his ass at Monopoly. He’ll never know what hit him.
