the monopoly land baron!

Tuesday July 31, 2007

When we were out shopping at the mall today with our friends, Spencer asked if we could buy a Monopoly Game. I agreed on the condition that he needed to actually play it.

Once evening hit he asked if we could play... so three hours later he had all the money, property and I was bankrupt! He said he was playing like his dad... and he was thrilled to win for the first time since he started playing the game at age 5. We have fond memories of playing Monopoly Jr!

We considered tonight's game as a language practice session since the game is in Russian. We learned a few new words and had a great time. All of the properties have Russian street names. It took a little adjustment for both of us to call the money rubles instead of dollars!


  1. Love this game - used to play for days on the same game! How cool it must be to see it in another language.

  2. It seems like it was a good choice- the Monopoly game! Good practice on names etc. while you were having fun!

  4. Proud Dad,

  5. That is so cool! Our daughter won while camping and the act of me cashing completely out really impressed her. She said nest time she is given birthday money she thinks she is going to save it.
