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.

Nice to see a new post.

I've been listening to the old Metagamers podcasts, and really like the show. Hopefully, there will be more to come!

Ok, so let me get this straight... a kid with limited knowledge of board games comes up, clearly interested in your game and equates it to something that he knows about, which from the 1 sentence explanation sounds reasonably close.

You come back with a completely unrelated and reasonably stupid quip.

Congratulations god sir. Go back to your mother's basement.
