RE: [Unity_Games] RISK For Sale [humor]
- The guy might be a coin collector. The grading system for coins starts with
Brillant uncirculated and works its way down to good then poor, and finally
slug. The game being described sounds like it should be rated as poor
condition; you can still tell it was a game once.

Sorry if this is slightly off topic (but no more so than Andrews weak
attempt at a blank post to battle the Autoposter).
I saw this posted in rec.games.board.marketplace at lunch today. I almost
couldn't resist a follow-up post but in the end just decided to share it
with the UG group as I found it pretty funny.
