Monopoly Aggression

Son, Alex, loves, loves, Monopoly! I remember playing it as a child and enjoying it alot, also. The challenge of buying as many pieces of property as possible, especially trying to own the same colored property so you can buy hotels and charge high rent bankrupting your teammates. My goal was always to own Broadway and Parkplace.
We played the game Friday night along with husband, Chuck. Those two were so aggressive and competitive leaving me with little money and no chance to buy hotels, and I kept landing on the "go to jail' space, losing my turn with little to do but watch and munch on popcorn! And to my chagrin Alex bought Broadway and Parkplace.
Just wait until next time, they'll be sorry!!

I always hated that game, but then again I am not the sharpest tool in the shed like Alex!!! Fun though.

Oh I won't even go there with the guys in my family. They turn on us girls. Buying and selling everything to each other and totally trying to knock us out. Which they do. Not to mention the game goes on and on, way into the late night and I totally am not up to that!!
Hope you get em next time!!!
