My girlfriend and I play games together. She is newer to gaming than I am and I usually win a good number of the games we play. The thing is she is pretty competitive and never wants me to take it easy on her and I respect that.

It seems though, I seem to win a lot of the games by the smallest margin possible within the game. When I do this, my girlfriend likes to feel the drama of compitition!

What this means is, she is pretty competitive and really likes to win and when she is beaten by such a small margin she really gets that, "I CAN'T BELIEVE I JUST LOST BY ONE POINT!" feeling and shares it with me! She is not a bad sport, but after one of these losts she will shake me like she thinks candy is going come out of my ass! It's pretty great! Well, she's pretty great...

One day after one of these games, I was trying to calm her down and she said, "How many games is that? How many games did you just beat me by one point?" At which point I reply, "I'm not counting... What do you want me to do make a geeklist of the games or something?" I was joking, but she turns around and surprises me and replies, "You should totally do that!"

So at my girlfriend's request, here is the list of games that I beat her by one point!

Score:

Me: 940,000
Her: 930,000

5er game. this was the first game for 4 out of the 5 of us, I didn't teach this. This one was kinda cheap... This was my girlfriend's win, but on the last turn, I talked another player into making a trade that helped me, but did nothing for her... It netted me 20,000 and the win... The funny thing was I didn't realize that it did nothing for the neutral third player until after the game was over.

This one was super sweetly close:

Score:

Me: 35
Her: 35

I win on the tie break by one doubloon... Her hands were on my throat by the end of this one.

Score:

Me: 17
Her: 18

For those of you that don't know that game... points are bad. The lowest score wins... To be fair, I had just taught her this game.

"3 people?!?! You beat 3 people by one point? Really? Really?" she said as her hands came shooting towards my throat!
