“Damn it!” James shouted, standing up and flipping the board. “This game is bullshit!”
“Dude, calm down,” Chris said, hands extended, fingers spread.
Joe meanwhile was doubled laughing. When he finally stopped, he wiped his eyes: “That was the best! I can’t believe you fell for that!”
Matt nodded vigorously, tears in his eyes, as James stalked out of the room.
The laughter was dying when the doorbell rang.
“Yes!” Matt exclaimed, leaping from the couch and sprinting towards the door. After a moment, he rushed back into the room, grabbed his wallet, and charged back to the front room.
