I am participating in the NaBloPoMo challenge for May. It should be a fun one. It is titled: Play.
Today’s topic is: What is the worst game to get stuck playing?
I have said it once and I will say it again. Monopoly.
Yep that is right, the iconic board games has got to be the worst game in the world to get stuck playing.
I once turned down a date with the prettiest girl in school when we were making plans for our first date and she suggested:
“Come on over to my place and we can play Monopoly!”
Hoping she wasn’t suggesting ‘something else’ or somehow there wasn’t a double entendre there but I declined none-the-less.
Monpoly has got to be the most agonizing form of entertainment known to man. Does it ever end? No!
At least back in Lincoln’s day, he passed the time reading books.
Monoply has a good premise. You go around the board and collect your loot while buying up properties and charging your pals rent. Sounds like really life, doesn’t it? No.
Who cares how much wealth you accumulate when it is just funny money.
Hey wait a minute. Isn’t that what got us in the mess in this country? Didn’t it all start with P-BO’s Cash for Clunkers program?
Funny money or not, its 2012 for goodness sake. Who cares who owns a railroad and when can a couple hundred bucks get you out of jail?
I guess if you want you can take a Chance but I’m betting there is more in that Community Chest than a game of monolpy that will take years off of your life, literally. I mean, when has a game ever ended in under sixteen hours.
Who has that kind of time? I would rather spend it on Facebook.
