The car piece is a Volt.
And the battleship has been sequestered.
“Shouldn’t all these railroads be ‘high speed trains’?”
“Why should I ‘Take a ride on the Reading’...I’ve got Air Force One.”
“Everyone put your money on the board, we’re going to redistribute it equally.”
“It’s not fair there is a winner.”
The Bank "never goes broke." If the Bank runs out of money, the Banker may issue as much as needed by writing on any ordinary paper.
Woohoo! Quantitative Easing: the board game.
Have you seen the new PC version if LIFE? I bought it for my daughter for Christmas many moons ago. There is no Poor Farm at day of Reckoning. You either go to Millionaire’s Acres or you just hang there unresolved.
Anytime someone puts a house or a hotel on their property, he tells them, “You didn’t build that!”
“HAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAA...now ALL of you bastards have to pay LUXURY TAX!”
“People shouldn’t be allowed to buy property.... the govt should own ALL the property.”
“When my term is over, a lot of my friends are getting ‘GET OUT OF JAIL FREE’ cards!”
How many times around the board before I get to be President?
I’m going to St Charles place to do some Community Organizing.
There needs to be more spaces on the board to collect taxes.
Marxist Gardens is 0bama’s favorite property.
All black panthers playing get a GET OUT OF JAIL FREE card.
“What do you mean Jesse Jackson and al sharpton are the only ones who can play the race car?”
When someone gets hotels on Boardwalk and Park Place, they should be taxed at 100%.
When someone gets hotels on Boardwalk and Park Place, they should be taxed at 100%. And the money given to the folks on Baltic and Mediterranean Avenues.
I hope my communist friends dont find out that I played this capitalistic game.
Cute idea, but I think it could be better.
“House rule folks, anyone who has hotels on Boardwalk will have to pay for housing on Mediterranean and Baltic Avenues.”
“We use these special dice for the first turn of the game. All the sides have two on them, which guarantees that you land on “Income Tax” on your first roll!”
“Four times the dice roll for Electric Company?! In the new Fairness Edition, that price will necessarily skyrocket to 40 times the dice roll.”
“New feature: all Community Chest cards require the player to pay INTO the Community Chest.”
“Bankruptcy by landing on a developed property is now rare. However, drawing the new and improved you are accessed for street repairs will now cost $1 Trillion.”
“Landing on the railroads is now mandatory. The race car token is outlawed.”
“Half of the Chance Cards send you to Luxury Tax.”
“The Pay Doctor’s Fee card can be ignored by women of child-bearing age who state they are only getting contraception.”
He had to get one at a garage sale to be able to play and have to make sense to the kids.
I hate that I was looking forward to sharing it with the and had to take a double take on the stupid PC rules.
1. Reduce the number of colors of properties from 8 to 2 (Red and Blue). Eight groups of 2-3 properties facilitates suburban sprawl. Two groups of properties concentrates the homes into a denser infrastructure and eliminates competition amongst landowners.
2. Replace houses with apartments. Houses require mortgages, which are unfair barriers to ownership for many people. It's better that the city owns all the aparments and that the people pay rent to the treasury rather than mortgages to the bank.
3. Owners of Blue properties go to jail after rolling 3 doubles in a row. Owners of Red properties go to jail after rolling 2 doubles in a row. Owners of railroads and public utilities never go to jail.
4. Only the wealthiest 1% of players must pay the luxury and income taxes.
5. When the wealthiest 1% pass Go, their $200 is immediately placed in ObamaParking. If a 1 percenter lands on ObamaParking, the money is divided equally amongst the remaining 99 percenters.
Exceptional response. I imagine the now empty spots on the door Federal Wilderness Zones that send you to jail if you land on one. More Community Chest and Chance spots, and a bunch of spots that now reflect your increased involvement with the government (IRS spot, Death Panel spot, National Service spot, etc.)
GO TO JAIL. GO DIRECTLY TO JAIL. DO NOT PASS GO. DO NOT COLLECT TWO TRILLION DOLLARS.
Was it Parker Brothers? I can’t remember. Sucks getting old. :)
We played the hell out of that “Trouble” game (”Pop-o-matic pops the dice...pop a six and you move twice”), and also “Sorry”.
Mostly though, we ACTUALLY WENT OUTSIDE and played sports, fished, rode bikes, swam, hiked, etc. I wouldn’t trade that for all the video game playing today.
