One of the good things about the holiday season here in Barcelona is that it lasts until the 6th of January where we celebrate the Three Kings tradition – ok, in winter I feel like we are traditions hoarders ;) – and this year I was lucky (and quite rarely, let me admit) to have enough vacation days left to take all the season off from work until just yesterday. Don’t get me started on how hard the comeback was, so to cheer myself up a little today I thought it would be great to remember one of those fun afternoons we devoted to board games!
Dani loves Monopoly, I think we have talked about this before in one of our Q&A posts (my favorite classic game would be Trivial instead). The monopoly is a board game that you need to have enough time ahead or you already know that you won’t be finishing it; in fact the game you can see in pictures was played in two different days: 4-ish hours for the first one and 1-ish for the second part.
Ours is a retro edition that represents the streets of Madrid, comes in a wooden box and metallic tokens. We also know that exists a Monopoly with the streets of Barcelona and some special editions (Simpsons and so on…). Do you have a Monopoly? I’m curious about which cities are represented in yours!
Which are your favorite classic games? Do you know any shortcut for a Monopoly game? Do you have any special tips that makes you instantly the winner? Since Juno won’t tell us her monopoly success secrets, we ask yours!
