Play Monopoly TUES @ the MSC

Post by Saltx3 » November 19, 2019 7:10 am

Good Morning!

Today is National Play Monopoly Day. I remember our kids would set up this game and play for days, stopping in for their next move in-between school and social activities.

What is your favorite monopoly playing piece? I like the top hat.

National Play Monopoly Day on November 19th recognizes the iconic board game that lands us on Park Place, Boardwalk or even in jail.
Known as one of the most popular board games in the world, Monopoly was originally based on a board game designed by Elizabeth Magie in 1902. The game has been played by an estimated 5 million people since 1935.
Monopoly comes in numerous versions. Do you enjoy a particular book or movie franchise or hobby? The game likely comes in themes focusing on famous characters and likely scenarios. How about sports teams or pop culture? Monopoly money goes there, too!

Good morning Linda and Michi. I like the race car.

Afternoon BNers
It is a pretty day on the coast.
Too bad I am going to the Dr.
Seems like I come home from LV with something every year.

It was a little overcast but the temperature was almost 60 degrees so I went out for a stroll. The park was almost empty.

Hi there! I floated on the river in a cold, clammy fog. The fish weren't too cooperative, but I was in a state of bliss.

When we were newlywed's, Anne bought a bunch of board games, including Monopoly. Weplayed the game. She didn't understand the mechanics and simply hopped around the board, collecting her 200$ while I bought everything I landed on. Three passes around the board, she was broke and steamed. We never played since.

The weather guesser on the 6:00 news just said there's a new tropical storm in the Atlantic. The good news is it's 1500 miles from South Carolina and it's going to take a turn to the northeast long before it gets anywhere near land. Hurricane season ends in 11 days and hopefully we're done with that s*** for this year.

Nice touch at the beginning of the game. St. Louis is playing Tampa Bay in St. Louis. St. Louis won the Stanley Cup last year and one of the players on that team, who is a native of St. Louis, plays for Tampa Bay now. They presented him with his Stanley Cup championship ring on the ice before the game and all of the St. Louis players were tapping their sticks on the ice, which is a hockey player's version of applause.

When we lived in northern AZ, it would get really cold. -47°. Yes, that is minus 47°. There were 5 kids within a few years apart. When it got so cold, we sometimes lose power and school would close . So we would all gather at one house and play monopoly and clue for days.
Kept us busy and warm
