Today’s first “HoP Idol” audition comes to us from Inquisitor Dunn of 2 Cents on 40K (not to be confused with the site “2 Cens on 40K that I totally made up on purpose in yesterday’s HoP Idol Finalists announcement). It seems he’s got a burning question that he needs to ask you and a picture of dinosaurs that made me laugh until I fell off my chair.
In the end, it’s just a game of toy soldiers.
In the end, it’s just a game of toy soldiers. This is the phrase I have to remind myself of before games and before I open my mouth to argue rules disputes. I am a very competitive person, and while I do not stomp off after loosing a game, I really hate loosing.
A bi product of me being competitive is I like to argue my point if I think I’m right. It’s almost a mini game to me sometimes, it’s my Mr Hyde. I have won a good number of sportsmanship awards and I have been scored low for rules questions or enforcing the 1 inch rule. Reminding myself of that phase has been a huge help in remembering the Dr Jekyll in me. Sometimes it’s better to let things go to save a fun game.
How does this pertain to you? Well, maybe it doesn’t, maybe it does. The more I read on the Interwebs the more I think we all loose sight of what and why we play. Just remember, in the end, it’s just a game of toy soldiers.
