I never liked that game. My cousins used to play it all the time and they played nasty…
Nasty is the name of the game; acquisition, hording and greed. Just the other day I read:
In 1903, the Georgist Quaker Elizabeth Magie designed a game to demonstrate the harmful inequalities caused by monopolism. This was the birth of the all-time, best-selling board game franchise. The original patent is over a hundred years old, yet the current owner has fought hard to keep it from passing to the public domain. This would certainly displease the game’s inventor, but it is not surprising that Parker Brothers would want to keep a monopoly on Monopoly.
Nice seeing you around, pumpkin. I’ve missed you.
I have never been a big game player…I’d rather be making something. Though, my family when I was growing up used to play UNO and a dice game my grandparents called “Blew It”. I always enjoyed them and there were some others…used to play “Chicken Foot” and “Mexican Train” (Dominoes) with my dad, before he got sick. Just not a fan of Monopoly probably because it’s an ugly game and my cousins were just outright mean when we did play it…I am not a meanie.
Thanks Peter, I have missed being a part of the blogging world.
Just glad to see you back and know that all is well. GAME ON!
