THE GAMES WE PLAY ....

Throughout our lives we play many games. As children we learn many of life's lessons through game playing. We learn math. We learn reading. We learn sportsmanship. We learn how to WIN. We try to learn how to lose gracefully. But as we mature, game playing takes on a different tone.

It can be seductive. It can by exciting. It can be dangerous ...

It can even lead to death.

How many of us have crossed the lines in perilous game playing? As our curiosity leads us down paths to unknown situations, sometimes we can get BURNED ....

On one moonlit night, a young woman enters a smokey nightclub sensing the evil within. The smoke clears. A loner, forced into a corner by a gang, is in need of assistance. His handsome features contort as a glimmer of fear streaks his face like a dull razor.

She steps in and charms her way through the wall of testosterone. Little did she know that moments later she would be chased by this ruthless band of not so merry men.

Who is this mysterious stranger?

Will she escape?





 Who will be the winner of this TWISTED game? ...

I know I'd like to find out!

  6. I wouldn't want to play any games that could lead to death, but then again I guess anything can kill you. You could choke to death on a Monopoly token.

    Best wishes to EJ!
