You win lose some

Mostly, I win, but that is because I'm talking board games! We've been playing a LOT lately. It's so darned hot out that the kids and I have been staying inside and playing board games. As you know, one of our favorites is Life, but tonight, we played Monopoly. I won BIG time. First, The Boy had a tantrum. Then, The Girl. She lost first, though. The Boy hung on. To be honest, I thought The Girl was going to win - she had so many properties...but she had no cash. And when she did, she was frivolous with it trying to buy properties she didn't need from The Boy. I sat back and watched it all happen. In the end, I had all 4 railroads, the orange monopoly and the light blue monopoly. I had hotels on everything. I got the dark purple one from The Girl (Medeteranian and Baltic) and put up hotels there as well.

Ahh - life is good. I'm far too competitive to allow the kids to win. I figure I'm teaching them disappointment and how to handle it (although they are not doing well with it yet)!

Here are some shots of the game closet. What board games do you guys like to play?


  1. You are the board game queen! I own one measley board game but it is my favorite: Scrabble!

  2. We love Boggle, Magic the Gathering (card game), Star Wars & Lord of the Rings Risk. The entire family is hooked on the Wii, but the boys would give all of it up for 30 minutes of World of Warcraft!

  3. The game I'm REALLY good at is Trivial Pursuit. I might give you a run for your money on that one, but the others? I concede to you already! BTW, Uncle Lynn has authorized another Great Pop'rs Giveaway--it starts tomorrow, so stay tuned!
