Today we lost Prince, and I mourn. RIP 1958-2016.
However, today we also gained a Queen. Not some ancient bag who presides over the
islands of the UK who is happening to be celebrating her 90th birthday, but none other than…me! Tonight I became the Queen Champion of Munchkin for 3 weeks in a row! #Winning is everything! Put a crown on me, please!
This particular game night found the four of us playing Munchkin Booty mixed with the Jump The Shark expansion number 2.
I had decided earlier that my goal for the night would be to use the accent I am given. In Booty, you have “Accents” instead of “Race.” So I promised myself that I would use my accent to really get into the game. I also told Sean on the way over to CK & Carie’s house that I planned on helping him win. I felt kinda bad that he gets attacked all the time and never wins because of it. I wanted to Stand By My Man. Thanks, Tammy Wynette for the reminder!
At first, Ck came out fighting with 2 “Go Up A Level” cards while Sean and I only had one
each of those. So we all ended up out of level 1, except for Carie, by the time we took our first turns.
I ended up being a British Navy guy so the whole night, I tied hard to keep my accent up. “Ahoy, then matey…” just goes so far any innumerable amount of times. I broke my promise and I started talking all regular, you know, with no accent whatsoever. So I guess I was more of an American Navy guy. With no discernable accent, that is!
I helped Sean all I could to get ahead of Ck, but then the old man bit back. He attacked me with a monster I couldn’t beat without help, that I got from Carie, but my days of helping out the old man…over! I found myself on Level 9 along with Ck, and thanks to pure luck, he didn’t go up a level when it was his turn leaving me wide open to take the lead.
And take the lead I did. I pulled a Level 15 monster as I was breaking down the door and all three of them came at me with the best they had but I was winning by too much of a margin to make a difference. I think I ultimately won by 2 after the back-stabbers were done. And that’s nothing to sneeze at. Seriously, don’t sneeze right now.
So I won for the third time in a row. Munchkin winners seem to happen in cycles.
Before I was the reigning champion, Carie was. Before that, it jumped between all 4 of us. We all just know the game very well. When someone wins, every other player comes totally close and by the end of most games, we are all at Levels 8 & 9. We all need a challenge. Any takers?
