My little brother beat me at checkers for the first time today. I mean, I AM rusty (no one has been willing to play checkers with me for years because I always won), but not THAT rusty, and I creamed my dad not an hour before.
I was beaten because I made a stupid mistake. Otouto asked me to teach him checkers, so I slowly walked him through a game, and then played a game with him, using the exact same strategy, while my sister was watching distracting TV right next to me. So Otouto won. but not without a long, drawn out fight. I haven't played a game like that in years, even when people were willing to play me--a game which could go either way at any point.
Anyone want to play checkers?
