Then when you get home you set up the tent to dry it out and it rains for week.

A huge fan of Cluedo and Monopoly. I think I'll be playing them for a long time.

We just call it Clue in North America. I didn't realize it was called anything else.

Monopoly and Life should be required learning in grade five and then council the kids on how to shape their education.

Y'know, I've always thought that games would be one of the best ways to teach kids how to think, learn and problem solve by strategizing.

Once I went with my son to the Space Center in Houston. On the bus ride over I asked if anyone wanted to play a car game. My son's best friend say's, "No, no, no... they play hard car games."

I took it as a compliment rather than just being outed as an uncool nerd.

We used to look forward to being allowed to play adult games. The kids today are happy to see the adults are busy so they can go do their own thing. Thats why some of this stuff has to be brought into schools as well as computers.

I agree. Monopoly taught me how to negotiate.

I found a log I'm going to turn into a Mancala table. I'll start production this weekend and keep you guys posted.

I just read thru this thread and it brought back some fond memories of youth. We played Monopoly night and day and nicknamed it “monotony”. Our variation was to use two boards with double cards and properties and join the boards into a figure 8. The normal 4 hour game turned into a marathon game when doubled.

I just heard the other day they added new pieces and took away others. Everyone wanted to be the race car and no one wanted the iron I do remember that.

The replaced the iron with a cat. I would still rather be the iron. I'm the gun from my Clue set when I play Monopoly.

I sawed that log in half, not any good, so I'm heading out to a friends house to take a look at some of his fallen logs.

What's your plan for those round bottom holes.
