It’s a Monopoly Kind of Month

Groovy Green Livin Monopoly


It’s official. We have a Monopoly obsession. It began about a month ago and I can’t remember what triggered it. Our game closet in the basement is packed with board games and has been for years. Most of the games only see the light of day on a rare occasion. Finally Monopoly is getting some use.


Groovy Green Livin Monopoly and Board Games

Now my three boys can’t get enough Monopoly. I’m not complaining. Have you played Monopoly? The game goes on and on for days on end. I’ve joined in a few times, but for the most part they are on autopilot without me.

They’ve even made their own money and cards to add a new twist to the game.

How long do you think this will last? No begging for electronics, not much fighting-it feels surreal.

Yesterday we branched out into checkers.

They pleaded for chess, but that didn’t happen since I’m a novice at best.

Whatever triggered this preoccupation with Monopoly I owe you a big thank you.
