Monopoly

Do you ever wish Monopoly money was REAL money? What a funny game monopoly is. The concept behind it makes me wonder who created it? Someone in real estate? Well, my hubby LOVES monopoly and out of all the games we received from our wedding this was one we had not played. Josh and I have a fun tradition of playing board games fairly often together. We love them! It was time to pull out the Monopoly game! We played last night. The result....


Ria wins! Big time win :) By the end of the game, I owned all but 3 properties. We had so much fun. Well... maybe I had too much fun. Joshy is quite competitive. Hm... he said he "let" me win. RIIIIIIIGGGGGHHHTTT.
What is your favorite board game?

Settlers of Catan (and Cities and Knights of Catan). I might sound like a geek, but there's a total following. The game is amazing, and semi-addictive! I love a good game of strategy! Aren't board games so fun? Bryan and I love our board game nights! Marriage is just the best!

Monopoly is seriously my favorite ever. I'm pretty sure it's a Kansas City favorite, at least for those who do the Nightwatch. They refer to it as "Monops."

I remember playing M with my sister when we were kids. It was nice to pretend we were rich once we got to the point where we owned properties. Yep it would be nice if it were true. :)

Thanks for visiting and commenting on my site!! I love your wedding pics to BTW. Thanks for sharing!!

Monopoly is our favorite, too. Lol about wishing monopoly money was real. So true.

Thanks for your sweet words of encouragement on my blog and for your prayers in bringing our son home by Christmas.

Congrats on your life as a wife!!!!

I LOVE catan. I'm obsessed to games in general. Especially if you make it ultimate and add twists to it. I also like othello, but I don't know if that counts as a board game. I also love card games :)

I gave up on Monopoly years ago, after my best friend's brother wouldn't cave, made a comeback and creamed me finally after an eight hour game.... I still have nightmares about it, lol. Glad you had fun!
