Game Day Humor

I went to a game session today at a game store. We were playing board games in the back while a wild pack of kids was playing Magic out front. During a game of Mexica, one of them was wandering around, stopped at our table, and asked what the game was about...

Us: Players are trying to form regions of various sizes using water tiles, then compete for control of them by placing buildings of various sizes.
Kid: Oh, so it's like Risk. [And proceeds to walk away]

Later on, there was a huge commotion out front, with everyone "gathering" around one table shouting. I asked the game store owner what was going on...

Owner: It's the draft for Magic.
Me: [Loudly] Oh, so it's like Risk.

Some games rules posted by BGN were not available without a Twitter account. I signed up, and now I guess I'm on Twitter too.
