Well my friends and I still get that craving for some Friday night Monopoly at times. Though I must agree that things have changed with it and how things go about in the game. It was not long ago when we still use paper bills but now, you already have a credit card expansion which makes it easier for you, but personally, takes half the fun. It still feels different to be able to hold your money and budget it rather than just swipe and get what you want from it.

Monopoly was one of the few games I enjoyed. Always lost like any other board game. Trivial pursuit I would win on occasion.

On Sundays the girls and their husbands come over for dinner. We usually end up playing domino's. When the weathers nice we're outside and play a couple games of Corn Hole (which is a lot like lawn darts except they don't hurt as much we you throw them at someone) and drinks a couple brews. I guess Corn Hole is a board game with a bigger board.

I learned what corn hole was recently and still giggle when I read it.

I play dominoes, not so good though.

I play Gin Rummy a lot with my wife. She's good at it. Like most thing in life I am only OK.

I'm not sure a game called Corn Hole would go over well up here. Too many bizarre connotations

But Dominos is fun. I used to play that a lot. We still play Gin Rummy quite a bit. It's a fun game.

We enjoy it. It's easy to play and we keep score based on games played not running tally so we can play it anywhere without pen and paper.
