    But Monopoly doesn’t work if you just buy land. You have to build on it too. I remember when we played it with the Gov. of Farah and he thought all you had to do was buy land. He got wiped out after landing on a hotel–and of course his rents were minimal and easily paid. It would be interesting to play the original game though. Maybe I wouldn’t always lose.

      For me, Monopoly is stressful even when I win because it’s all about “legitimately” cheating someone into the poor house. Yes, there are tactics and decisions, but ultimately so much is chance and scheming. But then I prefer Pandemic to Risk, any day :).
