PAT: Some very interesting thoughts from today's crowd. O.K. Braveheart is shuffling out the cards. 14 to Ares, 14 to Khan and 14 for the neutral Infantry for the two player rules. They're studying their cards...
JAY: Khan has his poker face on, while Ares appears more emotional about his choices. Hmmm... The set-up looks like Ares will field more forces in Africa and North America while Khan is definitely looking at a conquest of Europe and Aulstrailia. Asia is
highly contested and South America is up for grabs too.
PAT: With all their men in place, Khan and Ares' roll one die to determine who goes first.... Khan wins and he wastes no time... he immediately launches an all out assault to irradicate Ares' token forces in Australia.
JAY: Some tough Dice rolls there, and Khan is definitely going to take Australia. Ares is growling about it and the referee has something to say:
Braveheart Lion: Awww, come on Ares, don't be grumpy... you're doing
JAY: Whoa... that made Ares' hand twitch towards his sword. Braveheart better watch it, that's the god of war not love. Khan has captured all of Australia and he's moving his attention to Europe...
PAT: ...And it Looks like Khan's offensive is bogging down in Europe. Khan is going to cut the power-play short and maintain his Armies. He looks awfully smug drawing that new card, Jay.
JAY: It's Ares turn now and he's scowling at Khan. He mobilizes his forces in North America and Africa. With some very aggressive and risky actions, Ares has routed most of Khan's men!
PAT: Khan does not appear pleased with this turn of events, and the Referee has something to say about the play...
Braveheart Lion: Awww, Khan... Turn that frown upside down! You're gonna do
JAY: Well it looks like Khan just grinded one of the dice into powder in his bare hands. The referee immediately replaces it. Ares has just finished his move and collects his card. With daring strategy, most of North America, Africa and South America
belongs to him now... But he lost more men in the process!
PAT: And this exposes the difference between these men, Jay. Ares' bloodlust and thirst for war led him to attack all out but now his forces are thin. Khan is more cagy, and now it is his play.
JAY: Khan begins to push out from Australia into Asia and is trying to capture the rest of Europe. He seems focusing on those areas to build a power base.
PAT: With Austrailia already under his thumb, Khan gets extra armies to put on the board.... His push through Asia does not last long. However, his tactical skill pay off in Europe. He takes everything except Iceland!
JAY: Khan decides to end his turn by taking his risk card. Now Ares finishes capturing South America and increases his hold on North America and is massing some men along Greenland probably to hold off Khan if he takes Iceland. Currently Ares is holding
more territory than Khan, mainly because of his aggressive playing.
PAT: It's true, Jay. Khan is far from beaten but he looks annoyed with Ares. And the Referee Braveheart Lion has something to say...
Braveheart Lion: Don't Worry Khan, I think you're doing Grrreat!
JAY: Whoa! It was a matter of time. Khan has grabbed Braveheart by the neck and has pulled him close to his face... Khan is saying something to the Care Bear Lion guy.
Khan: I am always 'Grrreat' little creature, now be silent. You're
beginning to try my PATIENCE!!
Braveheart Lion: Oh, you guys just need something sunny that's warm and
PAT: Oh, no, Jay... I think he's gonna sing...!
Braveheart Lion: When you down and kind of blue...AAACK!!!!
JAY: Thank goodness! Khan is now choking him.... Boy! Braveheart's eyes are just a popping out those sockets Pat! Wait! I think Ares is trying to stop Khan.
PAT: No, Jay, I think he may be attempting to get in on it. They are speaking...
JAY: ...Lady's and Gentleman... an amazing turn of events!
PAT: Yes. Khan is carelessly brushing the Risk game off the table. It seems the men have decided to play a new game which requires stuffing Braveheart Lion into plastic Risk army-man holder box.
JAY: Indeed. Khan is straining his muscles, giving it his best shot. Oh, but there's still some Braveheart sticking out of the box.
PAT: Yes Jay. Now Ares is going to give it a go. Here's where that God power advantage is really going to come in... Yes... Yes... Ares has stuffed Braveheart in the plastic box! The crowd is going nuts! Amazing.
JAY: Well, there you have it. Khan lost, but he seems to be smiling and not unhappy about it. Oh, what's this? Ares is presenting Khan the plastic box as a keepsake. Well, that'll make a handy paperweight.
