mate, just relax...

... or "Mens, erger je niet", which is the very appropriate Dutch name for Ludo, Parcheesi, Parchís (and literally translates as "Man, do not get irritated".).

Very appropriate indeed. People get extremely irritated while playing it. Particularly when a ninja wins hands-down a couple of times in a row, without even bothering to concentrate on the game much. Apparently, she's more interesting in building a perfectly balanced stage of sorts for the winner; i.e. for herself. Mwah ha ha ha.

See? Everyone's a winner. Chill, will ya?

  3. love the packaging on that parcheesi. i'm hopeless at games (not a strategic thinker, apparently) whether i'm trying or not! haven't played parcheesi since i was, like, six! great blast from the past. and i'm not just talking about the game packaging. (caught the bottle tops too!)

  10. A esto le llaman parchís allí? Lo siento pero aqui me habeis decepcionado, si con esto se irritan los holandeses con una partida de parchís español a cara perro puede haber navajazos!
