Monopoly is both mine and Fiancè's favorite game. We play this almost every night when we are bored of each other. This is how I play the game, first I try to collect as many places as possible (this meaning every stop I make, I buy), then I follow the game as if I am a police officer. The rules are simple when playing with me, just follow the rules written in the rulebook and never make up your own. I am a true controll freak and it is me you find sitting with the book correcting everyone.
I don't win every time, but let us get confused, because the reason I don't win every time is because I am too busy following all of the players to even concentrate on my own game. That is just how I am. Everything should be right, my motto. Fiancè thinks I'm funny, and all the other players are grateful (sometimes angry). They are only angry because I catch them trying to cheat and fool the other ones. Hah, never gonna happen.
How do you play games? And let me know you're favorite.
