Donald Trump challenges Vladimir Putin to game of Risk, loses after just three moves
MOSCOW – Vladimir Putin humiliated failed presidential candidate Donald Trump on Wednesday afternoon by defeating him in a game of Risk after just three moves. Broadcast live on Facebook, the entire game lasted 15 minutes, including 5 minutes of setup at the start and 3 minutes of cleanup at the end.
Game theorists agree that Trump’s gameplay was more reactionary than strategic. When Putin taunted him by questioning his intelligence, Trump turned beet-red and then mobilized all of his armies at once to attack an entire continent. Trump also suffered from terrible luck, consistently rolling low numbers with his dice, leading some political pundits to question if Putin had rigged the game from the start.
Since his devastating loss, Trump has used his Twitter feed to call for a rematch. Putin responded that he would be willing to face off against the alleged businessman in a game of Monopoly. Their game is set for next week.
