Monopoly

Lately the four older boys have taken to playing serious games of Monopoly. G has checked out a book about "How to Win at Monopoly" and studying up. Elf and Emperor get in on the games as well. Elf doesn't really have that drive to win. He'll make "trades" with people so that they will be happy. And he's very happy that THEY'RE happy. I keep trying to tell him that it's an every man for himself kind of game, but he'd rather play his way. G LOVES playing with him because he wants to win so badly.

The hard part of the game is at the very end when hotels are landed on, and debt has to be calculated. People lose their properties one by one and I HAVE heard some crying in the background through this painful process.

Then everyone happily starts a new game...
