These most recent pictures are being taken in the dining room of my parents house. There is no conservatory or library, but there is a piano and some books in the living room -- does that count?
Yesterday's game was of course Advance to Boardwalk... but I kid. It was Monopoly. The grand history portrayed by Parker Brothers and Hasbro, with the down-on-his-luck Charles Darrow presenting his original design, is not quite true. The first version was originally designed by a woman named Elizabeth Magie as a game showing the evils of capitalism. Later it drifted into the public domain where it became the game we now know and, well, perhaps not love. Dread, maybe? If you end up playing it over this long weekend, a few tips to move it along: 1) Don't put money under Free Parking 2) Use the auctions to divvy up the properties quickly 3) Just let Uncle Fred win, as he'll throw a fuss otherwise.
