Race for Gold

My wife and I love to game together. This part of our relationship I never saw coming. We come from very different walks of life. Let’s call it a complimentary relationship. Up until we came together over 20 years ago now, she never held a gaming paddle in her life. Until one day I came home from work to find her glued to my playstation racing Need for Speed’s Carbon.

I was shocked. And worried! She was going to take over the franchise, and there was nothing I could do about it. It only took her a few weeks and she was delighted to be neck and neck with me on the track. I was far from amused yet a part of me, deep down was pleased. We’ve never really been competitive with each other. But she likes it. Maybe a little too much yet I delight in her delight, if you know what I mean. She loves beating me at my own game. I’d likely be offended if it wasn’t so much fun.

Anyhow, we’ve discovered a new game; a game within the game and it’s a race for gold! We both prestiged to silver the first frame under Mysterious Artifacts, Room of Requirements II. The other day we realized we were both very close to prestiging our first gold frame. Not only is it the same aforementioned frame, but we are both waiting for the same fragments, Hagrid’s Umbrella. So it’s a race for gold and we are only 2 fragments apart. The look she gave me when she realized, had me howling in laughter. I doubt I’m gonna win this race, but it’ll be fun just taking part.

    @JulieJubz @Dogoutlaw @CytopeAchen Thanks for the support, feedback, and kind words. Wizard wife has 24/30 Umbrellas to my 22/30. It's a tight race. Stay tuned!

    edit: wow, i actually had time to edit this comment, 7 minutes left. Woot. Well, it's now 26 for the boss. Portkeys were good to her.

    Well, wizard wifey is showing me up. Not only did she gold Room of Requirements II (I need 2 more fragments), she is one fragment away from golding Borgin & Burkes. And she wants to do it on the same day. Sigh. Best I can do now is keep her busy and off the game to prevent such a calamity!😎

    Oh the pain! Ink is barely dry on my last post and already she's rubbing it in.

    Not only is she the Chosen One, now she's calling herself the Golden Child. 🙄

    Moving on now...

    LOL @JulieJubz too funny!

    Condolences @ZookiTabooki . If it's any consolation, those gold frames are a little daunting with their 50 fragment requirement. I've been on them for about a week now, and it's a little depressing seeing I still need 44 MME's and 40 umbrellas! It will take FOREVER!The good news is you have plenty of time to catch her up to complete the gold frames!

    @Dogoutlaw I find it funny that we sometimes say something will take forever in this game.. and yet the game has only existed for like two months? We're going so fast 😂

    I finally got my first golden one! I'm so happy about my lonesome golden frame... mainly because I thought the silver was a lot prettier, kind of wish I could keep them silver 😂

    @JulieJubz I know, I thought the same as I typed that. But I’m not a patient woman either, so....🤷🏼‍♀️😂 And yes! The “gold” is like bright yellow! I much preferred the silver frame color!

    @Dogoutlaw I totally get you. I'm suuuuper impatient when it comes to getting those badges!! They're so pretty, give them to me noooooow!!!

    And oh man, yes! that's exactly it!! I wish it was more of a dirty gold? Less of a BAM! YELLOW! IN YO FACE! 🤣

    @JulieJubz Exactly! They need to add a smidge of orange or brown, tone it down! lol

    @JulieJubz @Dogoutlaw I don't like the yellowish gold either. I've always prefered silver/white gold anyhow, so I'm gonna miss those frames. But the gold colour is horrible, too bright by far. I agree, tone it down.

    Hahahah, I love the fact we're all going into color theory about the frames xD!

    What do those developers know anyways?! (goes back to my little corner) LOL

    Ok, maybe it isn't horrible, but it does seem a little bright. @Dogoutlaw I see someone likes to poke the bear. You are b-r-a-v-e! That's like insulting your waiter right before he goes back to the kitchen to get your food. lol Love a developer today, I say. 😉

    @ZookiTabooki I have mad respect for the developers. I have not a clue how to make a game like this, but I know it probably took a **** ton of code and hours. I don't complain about the game much at all because of that fact.
