I found this really old Monopoly game in a charity shop yesterday.
It must be at least thirty years old and it still had all it's pieces!
I'd fun taking photos of the little sports car.
Is that in the newer edition?
I don't actually remember it from playing as a kid.
What I do remember is the squabbling from the start as to who got to be what piece, I loved the hat and of course nobody wanted the iron or the old boot!
And the bickering continued all through the game until somebody stormed off in high dudgeon.
In fact I doubt very much if we ever actually managed to play the game to the end.
As soon as I was old enough to understand the game it bored me, same with chess, the minute I realised it wasn't all about taking as many of your opponents pieces as quickly as possible I just couldn't be bothered!
Strategy was never my strong point! It stresses me out!
