Did you ever play Monopoly as a child?
My cousins, sibs, and I would stage marathon Monopoly sessions. Everyone argued over who would get the thimble.
Everyone wanted Boardwalk, of course, but I focused on buying the yellow properties: Atlantic Ave, Ventnor Ave, and Marvin Gardens. I also liked the light blue ones: Connecticut, Vermont, and Oriental. I usually could put hotels on them and make a fortune.
I still have my board, game pieces, cards, etc, but the box that contained them is long gone.
So are the days when a large group of people had time at the same time to play the game that would not end.
