After an entertaining game of Junta at HoG followed by me losing money at poker I suggested that we should gamble on somethimg I'm good at, like chess or mah jong. I also suggested Go but it needs to be mentioned seperately because I'm not good at it. For some reason nobody else thought that this was a good idea, curse them and their money grabbing ways.
The only thing that has been mentioned since a few times is the idea of playing Junta with real money. For those that do not know this is a game in which the players are all acting as corrupt politicians in a bananna republic and the winner is whoever gets the most money from the US foreign aid budget into their swiss bank account, a great game by all concerned. A couple of people have now commented that this is clealy a great idea (anyone with an ounce of common sense can see that the inverse is true, but fortunately nobody like that associates with me) I even ended up discussing with toxicpixie what the exchange rate between Junta money and real money should be.
I don't think anyone seriously expects this game to happen, ergo it should. Anyone up for it?
