You know sometimes I empathize a lot with Naruto. Growing up I'm sure many of you had that moment in middle school or high school where there was that one girl you liked. And you'd kill for just a moment to be alone with them and talk to them. But they never notice you, mostly cause they're too busy paying attention to some jackass.sigh
You're so sure though if you were just given the chance, you'd be able to impress her. Yeah.
For me, it was 7th grade Math class. I got partnered up with the girl in question.How the story played out in my head:
"Oh you can't answer number 4? That's easy! You solve it like this! And this! Simple huh?"
"Wow you're so smart! Thanks a lot!"
"We should totally study together after school and hang out all the time!"
"But what about so & so?"
"You don't need him! I'm super awesome!"
*girl clings to my arm as I fist pump in the air*
How it actually went down
"Do you need help?"
"No I've got it."
*Try to start a conversation*
*Gets ignored*This was a disaster.
Basically...that's the thought process going through my head when I saw our first preview card:
Naruto plays this card, randomly gets paired up against Sasuke, pwns his face. He fist pumps into the air as "Eye of the Tiger" starts playing, as Sakura comes rushing to him.
"Nayrootoe! You sure showed Saucekay! You're the best! Can I be your girlfriend?"
The village loves him.
He becomes Hokage.
Or he randomly runs into like a turn 5 Sasuke [Eyes of the Serpent], gets blown out, and loses the game. And he totally doesn't get the girl cause he's so uncool.
I just want someone to play this in top cut at an SJC/Kage/GenCon and win a game off of it.
Hope you guys have your d20s ready...randomization is gonna be hilarious in stand off games.
