Leah J. Utas said...

I don't believe I've ever played. I think I tried when I was young, but it never stuck with me.

Leanne said...

YAY!!!! one of my very favorites, dear Betty! LOVE the photos. They make me want to flip the lid and start a game right now!!! :)

Talli Roland said...

Yay for Friday and yay for fun games! I used to love this one.

Pearl said...

I stink at games, which probably explains why I'm so good at love.

HA HA HA!

I haven't played monopoly in a dog's age... think I might have to pull it out of the closet and dust it off now

Eyes were getting half shut from long term games going into the late of the night.I hope the last shot wasn't a poor loser throwing all the cards and money around.Coming from a big family it was years before I became the banker, a priviledged position in my family.

The one game Hubs and I cannot play together. Because he is a sore loser but he's a worse winner. LOL

Donna said...

Hahaaaa...I Rarely win! Happy weekend!

I played a lot of Monopoly as a kid. I must have had more patience back then. I don't care to play it much any more because it takes too long. ha ha! :D

Lydia K said...

I was just playing this last week with my kids!

jenny_o said...

Haven't played this in years. I don't think I EVER won playing against my big brother, but that didn't stop me from playing any time he asked! I just don't have the killer instinct you need to be good at this :)

KLZ said...

Oh, now I want to play a game! Not work, work is boo!

Baby Sister said...

I love Monopoly!!

Kristina said...

I haven't played monopoly with real money in a while! haha, we have the monopoly here and now with the credit card things.

Monopoly was banned in this house early on when ultra-competitive dad was trounced by his equally competitive (as we discovered) offspring. She was five. She tricked him into spending all of his money because she hid hers beneath the game board.
She's still doing that...

Brian said...

I like that game, it's fun to whap those expensive hotels around a bit!

Theanne and Baron said...

Monopoly...played for hours when I was a kid...never won...not cutthroat enough LOL!!!

Desiree said...

Monopoly is the only board game I ever enjoyed playing. I am off to read your other recent posts which I missed this week. My heart was not into blogging after our tragedy on Tuesday.

Ms. A said...

Used to play this all the time, years ago. Been a long time, since. Have a terrific weekend!

Madi and Mom said...

Happy Friday afternoon BB!!
Oh I love board games...well all except Chutes and Ladders and Candy Land....LOL We wore both of those games out and had to buy new ones when our daughter was little.
Have a wonderful weekend.

I must be getting old, my grown kids brought over a new Monopoly game and it was so confusing to play we had to keep referring to the rules. Give me the original version anytime!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

I always buy up the best estates, build up to hotels - and my wife still beats me!

Nancy said...

Love these photos! The angles are very interesting.

And btw, you have been to my blog several times and I very much appreciate it. You certainly were not the subject of my blog post today. I apologize if I caused you any concern. :)

Maggie said...

Ooh I love Monopoly! Must remember to pick it up next time I'm at the store...start teaching the spawnlets.

Cheeseboy said...

Great photos, but ugh, I HATE that game.

Lin said...

I hope you aren't the banker. My brother was always the banker when we played and he always cheated. :(

Liz P said...

My favorite rule mod was that if you landed on Free Parking, you collected money paid from Chance cards and Luxury Tax, things like that. It all went into the middle of the board until someone landed there.

Love Monopoly but man, it's a long game!

Cindy Caudle said...

The last time I played Monopoly my dad beat my socks off. Him and his big old hotels. Haven't played since. Love your picture though.

HulaBuns said...

I love these photos! Especially the last one!

Although, I should tell you that Monopoly makes me angry. I don't know why, but it's not good. :)

Have a great weekend!!

Munir said...

We played Momopaly in in India except it was called "TRADE". Same rules and same peices.

Marlene said...

Haven't played this in YEARS.....bringing back fond memories, though! I used to hate it when my opponent would buy up all the houses and hotels! LOL!

Hilary said...

I'm placing two hotels on Bossy Betty Boulevard.

Betty Manousos@ Cut and Dry said...

i'm a monopoly person!

love the photos; they are very interesting!

happy weekend!

Laura said...

Haven't played Monopoly in years. A facebook friend just post about a marathon Monopoly game she was playing with her husband and kids. Something like four hours and counting!

Ann said...

I haven't played Monopoly in ages. I remember always getting mad because my brother always beat me. I guess I'm not a very good loser....lol

The Words Crafter said...

Playing board games if one of the things we can manage to get our family together for. We're terribly competitive and we have tons of fun!!!

My older cousins taught my sister and me how to play Monopoly when we were little. Yeah...they cheated every chance they got, LOL.

Have a great weekend!

Ella said...

I haven't played in awhile, but seeing this makes me want to get it out! Happy Weekend~

Jenny said...

Reminds me of long summer evenings playing on the porch with my sisters. My older sister cheats!

Holly Ruggiero said...

Nice games shots.

Thanks for stopping by my blog.

Liz said...

Oooh, now can you take pictures of Clue? The Professor in the Study with the Lead Pipe?

Monopoly was one of my family's favorite games. I always lost, never could snag Boardwalk, but this post still brings back warm memories. Thanks, Betty.

floweringmama said...

Oooh boy, my little ones love playing this! My youngest always snags boardwalk.

Monopoly is one our favorite games. We have an original set, a dino set and a snowboard set. My husband usually wins no matter which set we choose to play with.
