Friday, December 03, 2004 Monopoly
The game's charm has not waned a bit. Well that was all the gaming we could do during those days [ok forgetting the Ataris] and now when you play it's fun to relive your memories. With bickering intact.
This handmade version of the game using Lord of the Rings as the theme is fabulous to say the least. Marvellous effort. Changes? In the creator's own words: "Railroads have become rivers, utilities have changed to things more ancient, Chance has become the Palantir and Treasure Chest has become Treasure Barrows. Coins instead of bills and no ones any more - we round up to the nearest 5, the copper colored coin." posted by pradeep | Permalink | (12)
Whats this? I didnt understand a bit!!!
Monopoly's Indian version is "Trade", the board game. The Monopoly that was then available in India had London as its theme, while Trade used cities like Kanpur, Madras and so on. The one that we got here, ofcourse, has the American flavor. Dude, if boredom strikes again try the game ($19)! Will keep you engaged for hours together.
Can it be played alone?? U know i'm alone @ home..right!!
Oops missed that part!
Yup, 'more the merrier'.
Havent had time to play yet. Probably some evening this week. But as I said, its just two of us to play now. More would be fun.
aha, I would love to play this. but first have to find people. usually a weekday evening is the best to play this, as weekends are always at the outdoors.
Sure we'll do,
Just wrapped up a game with Shalini. It was a lot of fun esp with all the LoTR references. As such monopoly is fun and with LoTR references its even more enjoyable.
Now it's too tempting!
