Loses its Flavor
February 20, 2008

When you first see it... You will be overwhelemed. But after playing it for a couple of months, it just loses its flavor and doesn't have that "touch" it had the first few times. More than likely it will end up in the attic or under your bed. It still is a great classic and I recommend that you buy it! Even if your only going to play it a couple of times!

Most overrated game on Earth
February 16, 2008

When I was a kid, my mother used to nag me incessantly if I spent so much as an hour on my Super Nintendo. She would complain about "what a waste of time it is" and then take away Yoshi's Island (noooo!) and pull out Monopoly. Of course, it's not a problem if you waste three times as much of your life on THAT.

Personally, I'm not a huge fan of board games (unless they happen to be Chess, checkers, reversi, etc). But I can play them if I have to. The one game that I currently refuse to play ever again is Monopoly. Though everyone "knows and loves" Monopoly, the game is actually extremely over-rated. It has almost no redeeming qualities and several major flaws:

  • The game is based almost entirely on luck. Roll the dice; that is it. If you are unlucky, you cannot use any of your business skills to outsmart your competitors. Those two damn cubes are what decide everything.
  • Very little strategy is involved. Basically, the only strategy is 'buy as many properties as you can". I'm sorry, but this is very shallow. Even the most simplistic computer games involve much more logic and thinking.
  • It takes too long! Whenever I play Monopoly, the games last upwards of 2 hours. Once I had a game that lasted nearly 5. I've asked many people, and they say that 3 hours is the average time it takes to complete a game. This, however, would not be a problem if the game wasn't...
  • Ridiculously Boring. Monopoly's repetitive gameplay, simple strategy, ridiculously long completiion time and lack of logical thinking all combine to make it become more mundane as you play.

I really did try to give Monopoly a chance. But the more I played it, the more I loathed it. I used to think I was alone, but many people dislike Monopoly- just Google 'I hate Monopoly", and you'll get about 600,000 hits! The only reason why it is so popular is because of its extremely long tenure, and because all the diehards are completely unaware that other, better games exist. Do yourself a favour: go out and buy a chessboard or, if you've got more cash to spare, a Nintendo DS.

Classics need no apology
February 03, 2008

The other day I played a game of Monopoly with two friends. Played strictly by the rules and with an understanding of the odds and values of the different properties, it was a close tight game. I lost, but it was a good night of gaming. Not bad for a game that hit the big time in 1938.

People can say that this game is luck dependent, I will counter that Settlers of Catan also has a high luck factor. Is it as strategic as some of the newer games coming from Europe?, maybe not. It is though a classic which should be seen as one of the best games ever produced.

Game snobs will prefer some of the newer products, I will always see this game as a standard which should be in any gamer's library.
