Board Games!


Monopoly a great game for the whole family.  It is playable with up to 12 people as there are twelve usable pieces.  However, if you are playing with more than 12 people, you can use pretty much any small household object as a playing piece.  Here you may encounter a problem though, as you could run out of your Monopoly money.  I highly recommend Monopoly as it is always a fun and intense experience!  The only problem I have personally with Monopoly is that it can take a very long time to finish a full game and is often drawn on for a while.  To win Monopoly you have to get the most money by the end of the game.  The game finishes when all but one player are out of money.


Life is a fun game that is great if your looking for a game that can take about 20- 80 minutes depending on how many people you are playing with.  Life can be played with two to six people due to the amount of Life vans included.  Throughout the game, you move your piece around the board and land on the different spaces which will either give you money, take money or get more children.  You also get to buy houses, go to university (if you chose to), get a job, get married and eventually retire at one of the two available retirement homes.  Life is a game that is all about making decisions and to choose your life!  The only problem I have with Life is that for little kids it is rather complicated and it is hard to learn quickly, hence the rating of kids nine and up.  To win Life you must collect the most money by the time you reach the retirement homes.  This can be done by getting the highest paying job and spending the least amount of money throughout the game, this means you may have to rely on a bit of luck! Just remember to have fun and don't get too frustrated if you happen to lose.
