2. Game time! Game time! Game time!

3. And removing the first few bricks is the easiest thing ever.

4. You take your sweet time, peaking through gaps to see the people you'll soon destroy.

5. But then someone gets cute...

6. ...and suddenly the tower no longer has a foundation.

7. Now every single piece has you cursing gravity and your shaky hands...

8. ...but whenever you're successful, you're oh-so arrogant about it.

9. (Despite how you're feeling on the inside.)

10. Whenever the tower starts to fall for someone else, you're the most excited about it.

11. There's tons of breath-holding...

12. ...but it still stands...

13. ...and you try to act like it's no big deal.

14. When it's your turn again, you have all the fears.

15. Because you think you're doomed.

16. Everyone else knows you're doomed.

17. You lost. Yup. The end. It's over.

18. Your friends couldn't be subtler about their feelings.

19. (But you take over the table by making a nonsense tower because that's what good losers do.)
