Monopoly: Before and After

by Steve Napierski to Comics

You should never discuss sex, religion, and politics OR play Monopoly in polite company. Games of Monopoly, if they ever actually end, never end well. I cannot recall ever having a game of Monopoly end were everyone playing is happy, unless of course you were playing with yourself and then there’s only about a 75% chance that someone is going to be upset.

Another board game that can be a major cause for turmoil is RISK. Whomever gets Australia can make it easy to predict whether or not it will be a pleasant game even before the first move is made.

On a side note, I find it funny that a game like Cards Against Humanity, which is anything but a family game (the tagline for the game is “A party game for horrible people”), is probably one of the best games to put everyone in a good mood. Just saying…

    Apples to Apples is where it’s at. Family, friends, I usually end up laughing my ass off. It’s best with a mixed age group, if you want fun with the younger people who don’t know what some of the cards are playing them against random adjectives.

      Cards Against Humanity is a much more adult version of Apples to Apples. If you’re looking for fun with your friends. Definitely not for kids.
