Genevieve writes again! (In case some of you are unaware, Settlers of Catan is a board game. I am very good at it. I (very) infrequently lose. The other day, I played with Pete and Gen. Here is Gen’s post about that infamous game.)
Settlers of Catan
I sat there, my cards in my hand, my brain focused on one thing: beating Rose’s winning streak in Settlers of Catan. I was determined, she beat everyone I admired and liked, this time she would lose. It was a long game, I cannot remember every move, but I know Pete and Rose were pulling out pretty good moves; I was getting disappointed at my so-far-failure. I needed to make Rose lose, and keep my own dignity by not coming in last. My move I remembered, I needed wheat and brick. I could trade three of my ores in for my wheat, so I did, and to my delicious ambition to make Rose lose, I did get my wheat. What I did next was brilliant; I asked “Who will give me a brick?” Rose shook her head, “I don’t want to give away my brick.” I made sure she had brick, and I lifted up my development card, which help you get points easier. My development card was a monopoly card, which meant I could take all the brick that Pete and Rose had. “Too bad!” I grinned and took her brick happily. That was my best move, other than that, it went downhill. Lucky me, Pete came in first and Rose in, get this: SECOND! And I came in last. Rose is awfully mean to me during the game, note that.
