Back: Lisa Duke, Sheryl Wrobleski, Julie Lawson, Annie Dick, Lupe DeLeon. Global Domination Have you ever wanted to blow up the world? Living here can really get you mad. It's always something, you know? Like the thrash band downstairs that absolutely must do their practicing at 3 a.m. Or the girl down the hall who is really in love with her boyfriend and isn't afraid to let you know the depth of her feelings at loud ^^^^^ volumes. Even ■■■■ your own beloved roomie, the very soul of decorum at other times, ^^^^^ who just received ^^™* a "Drop Dead" letter from the love of her life and decides to drown her sorrows with a mixture of 151 and milk (the Coke machine being rendered inoperable by a football player who didn't get correct change), only to end up drowning her creation in the waters of the swirling porcelain fountain down the hall. For some reason, these tiny things, these quirks of dorm living, charming though they may all be, tend to get me a bit upset. All right, I'm calm now. Why? Because I'm about to extract my revenge from the world. I'll show them. I'll blow them up! No, I'm not a deranged chemistry major, I'm not studying Nuclear Physics, and I didn't just rip off any plutonium from any of the research labs in S&RI. I'm just a wholesome American girl, and I'm hell-bent on global domination. I'm goin' down to the Commons to play Risk. Risk is a board game, you "I'm going down to the Commons to play Risk." see, but not just any board game. You get to wage war on the rest of the planet, as it, controlled by your friends, tries to wage war on you. It's just good clean fun. With each roll of the dice, with each conquered province, I feel my tension slip away. Power does feel pretty darned good. Now, I am in control. Now, the fun begins. Of course, sometimes the world of fast-paced diplomacy and the quirks of the dice don't always provide the release you crave. Sometimes, darn it, you just have to destroy in order to feel better. That's where Nuclear War comes in. Again, this is only a game. Nuclear War is a card game, kind of like playing strip poker with Madonna and Sean in the next room. Various "bomb" cards are dealt, and you play them in an attempt to annihilate your enemy, all the while trying to evade that most evil of cards, the dreaded Supergerm. Again by killing your pals, you gain valuable points, not to mention irreplaceable job experience if you're a business major. I suppose, though, the ultimate therapy, the game of games when you're mad at the world, has to be Diplomacy. Another board game, you need other people to win. Or more importantly, they need you. Heh, heh, heh. Backstabbing galore! This is especially good for anyone preparing to enter graduate school or Student Government. It teaches you to be sweet, be kind, to smile as you twist the knife in your partner's back. Ah, the joy of friends such as these, eh? — Elizabeth Hargis Front: John Trujillo, Trey Tol- lison, Mike Rosenbaum, Richard D. Lawior.
