The King leads the Charge!

What happens in a game when your opponent exchanges off queens as early as move 6?  Do you settle for a long and boring game which we all know is eventually going to be a draw?  I say no!  I say the queen's attacking duties fall to the other member of the royal family.
In a game for University B against Nailsea this week, watch as white cowardly exchanges off queens and then retreats his king to the far recesses of the board, while black's king steps up and charges forward!
The more discerning and handsome reader may have noted that the game still ended in a draw.  Well, yes.  And so did the match; 2-2.
Well, the king can't do everything.

    did you see the game where Nakamura decided to have a little fun and moved his King from G1 up to G8 (i think). It was like he had accepted the game was a draw and wanted a bit of a laugh. His oppenent must have been furious, he couldnt capture the king or get anywhere near it! It was also during the middle game with few peices being taken!
