How to Enter:

My family is a super competitive game playing clan.   You can get a nose bleed from a flying Catch Phrase disc hitting you in the face if you're not quick enough.  

Fun...up until you loose and enter into a shame
 spiral that you can't do anything right.
Today my brother, sister and brother-in-law were playing what we call Bags.  Throwing mini bean bags into opposing goals from a distance.  The tone was seemingly pleasant enough...there was laughter and jovial cat calling in the mid day summer sun...but you could feel the palpabale desire to decimate,crush and humiliate each a loving brother/sister kind of way.
Even as children, we were all super competitive, and if someone was upset by the results of a game, it was not a happy day in the house.  There were many a game of Monopoloy that I left unfinished slash destroyed because I would throw my remaining money and cards all over the table...A of all because it took like my entire childhood to get through one single game and B of all because my sister would end up somehow co-opting my Park Place and Railroads.
