Growing up, I loved playing the board game “Risk“. There was an exciting rush that came from massing dozens of armies in a country before going on an attacking spree to dominate all the other continents. It was about being the winner and conqueror. It was about being in control. And it felt good.
Not everybody loves board games, but most of us have felt the thrill of “victory” in sports, business, family, school or some other endeavor.
