King of the Mountain

When I was a kid we used to play, "King of the Mountain."  We would pick some high spot in a field, or stand on some area, that we would try to defend, and claim that we were King of that Mountain.  All the other kids would try to push the defender off, and if successful, would claim that he was now the new King. Well, that's O.K. for kids, but when adults start playing a game like that, with nuclear weapons, there will be no mountain left to defend when it is all over.
