don’t enter that conveyor belt!

Our evening conversation two days ago:

S – You fell down the wall….two damage points

F – Whaaat? I thought that’s only one point!

S – Nooo…I explained it before! Falling down the wall causes two damage points…

K – Haha (triumphal)!!

F – Karsten, are you done programming the next round?

K – Don’t rush me! I have to think!

S – If you enter that conveyor belt you are dead!

K – Whaaat?

F – Haha (triumphal)!

K – So I am dead anyway?

S – Unless you face in the other direction…

K – Aah! Alright. Wait, I have to programme everything again!

F – (sigh)

K – HA! S, can I shoot a drone at you?

S – Yeees….but first I force my programme upon you!

K – What? Why can you do that?

S – I got this special card…

K – And what happens now?

S – You have to do everything I do!

K – Can I still shoot a drone at you?

F – I go three steps forward.

S – Wait, it’s Karsten’s turn first. He pushes you down the wall!

F – Whaaat?

S – Be careful not to stop at the compactor.

K – Haha! (triumphal)

S – And my robot shoots Karsten’s. Pamm Pamm!

K – Wait, I still do everything you do, right? Pamm pamm! Ha!

F – I am shutting down.


…any guesses which game we were playing?



About erdhummel

Familial entropy - that's an insight into our current life which has been fundamentally changed last summer when our daughter was born. Having studied in Cottbus, Germany, and worked/studied in Edinburgh, Scotland, we momentarily live in a small town in Switzerland where Karsten is trying to save the environment and Freddie is trying to save our sanity. Since there is not much time for elaborate, long emails while doing that, we thought a blog might be a good option to smuggle ourselves into the lifes of our friends.

    Oh man, I love this! It is that game with the robots. Robo Rally? Awesome. It is so much fun to play. See we had this conversation a few days ago:
    H: Oh no, 3 more rounds and we are all dead.
    B: Really, it was looking so good, I guess we will be overrun by SARS.
    F: Can’t we do anything? Let’s think. We have to stop the outbreak.
    H: I can do this… No, I can’t… Wait… Let me think…
    (5 min later)
    F: Let’s give up, we are just not good enough.
    H: Shh, I got it. I take you there, your brother goes here. We switch the card there. And Bam! We saved the world!
    I guess that is a game for you guys as well.
