Of Maddening Monopoly

I was reminded once again today why I do not play Monopoly. A sweet, soft-spoken friend of mine had come over for dinner, and had requested that we play monopoly afterwards. I grudgingly agreed, and was sorry I did, because the game ended up with her near tears, and very angry at both Curtis and I (because we played using the "fast dice," which came with the game, mind you, and she had only played Monopoly once before in her life, so apparently, Curtis and I should have known better then to play with that dice and confuse her). Sigh...

Remember how we quit playing with Ben because he was so tightfisted with his properties? Monopoly may be a classic but it's not usually very fun. Speaking of fun, any recommendation for a board game that's fun to play with a group of 8-10?

This made me laugh...Martin and I played Monopoly last night too. Got pretty intense, unfortunately I was the one who crashed and burned in the end! :) We miss you guys and hope to see you soon!

Unless it's Star Wars monopoly, because then you can play with the little metal Jedi :D
