I used to joke in the comments section: "I'm going to get a lot of points when I win this one!" at the very beginning of large games - but I stopped because i think it made me a target......
I prefer a straight game.
"I expect to pass through this world but once. Any good thing, therefore, that I can do or any kindness I can show to any fellow human being let me do it now. Let me not defer nor neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again."
