Synchronised War on Terror World Record Attempt
Winter madness has set in. A sudden War on Terror demand means that 10 people show up for a game and there's nothing for it but to try two simultaneous games of WoT.
Everyone's slightly nervous - it feels like crossing the streams or something equally dangerous.
What follows is a perfect illustration of how WoT changes and adapts to its players. Team A, lead by Andy T, have a noisy, chaotic, shouty game, resulting in at least one billionaire and the banker having to sit on the money to prevent bank raids by the boistrous terrorists.
There was an instant behavioural shift from slouching, laid-back humans, to excited, screaming, red-faced fighting-chimps.Meanwhile, Team B, lead by Andy S, struggle to explain basic concepts, such as how sea routes work, to a novice boardgamer who's never set eyes upon a pair of dice in his life.
When team A were squabbling over nuclear proliferation, team B had only just discovered fire. When team A were surveying a planet sucked dry of its resources, bombed to crap and covered in terrorists, team B had just discovered Australia.
After four hours, both 5-player games were over and the post-WoT torpor sets in. That is, until we bring out the extra balaclavas!
We'd always wondered what would happen if you put 10 people in balaclavas in the same room together and we can now reveal the results of this experiment: people revert to monkeys.
There was an instant behavioural shift from slouching, laid-back humans, to excited, screaming, red-faced fighting-chimps. In a matter of seconds.
And as quickly as group insanity descended, the balaclavas came off and order was restored.
Now, what happens if you get 50 people together ...
