Hi everyone, Katie here.
Welcome back to Gamer Week. We've been celebrating Glogirly's favorite childhood games all week. Today's game is a very special one. Just about everyone has some magical Monopoly memories.
Glogirly LOVED games. And she REALLY loved Monopoly. But she was an only child, so often she had to persuade her mom and day to play with her. Her peeps were patient indeed. Have you ever played Monopoly with only 3 players? The game can last for HOURS. DAYS even. Glogirly honed her negotiation skills early in life by buying out her first losing opponent, thus dragging out the game for even MORE hours. Competitive AND persuasive. Her parents never stood a chance.
She says she'd ONLY play if she could have the dog game piece. DOG??? Apparently there was no cat. Major flaw in the original game design. Major.
|The Original Green Papers|
Even so, us cats picked up on the frenzy. I'm pretty sure the term "green papers" stemmed from the original Monopoly currency. Did I mention that Glogirly ALWAYS wanted to be the banker? What a control freak. Suspicious too.
During my exhaustive research for this post...YES, I research my material... I discovered someone beat me to the punch. Did you know there's a real Cat-opoly game?
The box cover could use a little help from GLOGIRLY DESIGN. Those cats scare me just a little.
But check out THESE game pieces. WAY better than an old shoe and a stupid iron.
