am i not smarter than a fifth grader?

~*~
dude. i rented yu-gi-oh! world championship 2007 for my DS, because i need entertainment to pass the tedium at work. so i start playing it today, go through the like, THIRTY tutorials, and fiiiinally start playing..

and got my ass fucking kicked, again and again and again. yu-gi-oh is fucking COMPLICATED. so fucking complicated. and really hard.

how the fuck do kids play this shit? this goes above and beyond the complexity of Magic: the Gathering, or at least when i used to play it (if they've still been adding rules all these years, it's probably pretty fucking complicated itself, now. i could never even fully understand how phasing worked.)

i mean seriously, i'm twenty-two, and in fucking mensa. if this shit is confounding to me, i'm really impressed that there are thirteen, fourteen year old kids playing this crap.

then again, if most kids are anything like my brothers, the cards are something to merely collect, and not ever actually play a game with.

though for the sake of the parents in the world, i hope most kids aren't anything like my brothers, lol.

I used to play the Yu-Gi-Oh! card game all the time; because I am a nerd. =P I thought it was kinda fun at first, but after playing it for a few months it got lame.
