Conquering the world

Walk-on Beach, Sea Ranch, CA


My family (i.e. Mom, Dad, brother and my wife and I) enjoy playing an occasional game of Risk. So we kicked off our family vacation at Sea Ranch, CA (about an hour south of Mendocino on the California coast) this evening with a round of this entertaining board game. I’m pleased to say that I won this time. (Play is fairly even among this group.) Lesson learned: sometimes it’s best to allow others to fight your battles for you. It remains to be seen, but I may end up learning another lesson about not sharing strategy with an opponent (i.e. my Mom). We’ll see.
