Duck Hat

my copy of Story War came in the mail yesterday and my nine-year-old brother is so good at it

he and i were fighting in the hot springs, he was the mandrake and i was the dwarf. i said that since the hot springs were fed from underground, and dwarves live underground, i could just burrow all around the battlefield and pop up wherever. to stop that he sucked up all the water in the hot springs and replaced it with his mandrake poison (which was poisonous to animals but good for plants), forcing me above ground. i played the Life Potion and rules that the hot springs were filled with it, and that it was the opposite of the mandrake’s poison, good for animals and poisonous to plants. so he has his mandrake shoot poison into its tendrils to neutralize the life potion and then bites off all the tendrils. he says he can grow back the tendrils instantly, which we let him do, but with the stipulation that he’s all out of poison. he says that’s fine because he can just plant himself in the ground and shoot up all these vines and stuff around him, which can’t be cut through by an ax. i then make the argument that this isn’t just any ax, it’s a magical dwarf-forged ax, meaning it’s super-strong, and combined with the dwarf’s strength he should be able to cut through “those weak rubbery tendrils.” to which my brother says “well if i’m rubber, you’re glue, what you do bounces off me and sticks to you”

he won three out of the four rounds
