Travis went thru this elaborate set up so that he, husband, and I could play against each other in Age of Empires on the computer. He and husband on their laptops, and me on my computer. Poor kid was jumping thru hoops because the game on each computer has to be exactly the same, including patch updates ect. Travis never did get to play. Turned out he'd updated his game too far ahead of husband and I lol. And since we were all working off the same game cd....it was too difficult to try to get husband and I caught up with him. So, against my better judgment, I played with husband. I haven't played a game against him in years. Any game. It was not pretty. We get going go into the battles. I'm already beating the pants off him in points......but in this game, the battle determines the winner, not points. He resigned. WTH? So we played again. Now this time I backed off a little, and also chose a map I'm not so familiar with. He kept attacking me. I kept whopping him. Then I go on the attack. He resigned. This is why I won't play games with husband. He is a sore loser. Unfortunately, he thinks he's awesome at games. Problem is......I'm better. I beat him at scrabble, I beat him at checkers, I beat him at canasta, I beat him at Rummy and poker. And now Age of Empires. lol But instead of trying to get better to beat me........he pouts. I hear about it for days, weeks, months, hell....years. Only thing I've never beaten him at is Monopoly. And I just hoover at that game although I love it. Oh, that reminds me........He's a sore winner too. And with Age of Empires......c'mon.....I've been playing it for years against the computer on HARD. It's my venting game. When I get the need to kill people, this game forfills this need and I stay out of jail. lol He knows that. Besides......I'm just good at these sorts of games. He knows that too. Takes all the fun out of playing a game when you're up against a sore loser or sore winner. I thank goodness that the only child I had prone to this behavior (Travis) I managed to break of it by the time he reached adulthood. And now he wants to play again.......ugh!
