If there is one thing that punctuates any trip back home for the holidays, it’s the Monopoly game that is played at Gabe’s Mom’s house every time. It’s more of an event than a game really. We tend to play with the Monopoly money from 3 – 4 different sets to make sure we have enough to go around. What begins with everyone grabbing for properties ends in multi-tiered conglomerates consisting of those who knew they could not stand a chance against the rest of the players. See… we don’t play to win… we play to humiliate, heaven help any females who decide to belly up to the table.
