I believe that most individuals have played Monopoly at some point in their lives. Personally, I found the game to be enjoyable, although I never considered competing seriously. Undoubtedly, there are skills and strategies involved, and luck can also play a significant role. Regardless, I take pleasure in engaging in board games with my loved ones.

The documentary tells the history of the game and how it is still going strong in its various editions. It is more than merely a fun game — it is a learning tool to help with basic math skills. For some it is the first time some had money to count in their hands. It is an experience many will never forget.

I Was Thinking About The Tokens

I don’t know if I had a favorite. I liked the top hat and the thimble. I may have used the iron and the wheel barrel at some point. Oh, and the Scotty Dog! 

The Under The Boardwalk Prime Video Was Informative

I did learn a lot about the game. I had no idea there was a national competition. It wasn’t anything I gave much thought to, but it was a competition everyone could try to qualify. You don’t need great strength or special skills. It’s a game everyone can play. I encourage you to view the video and dig out that old Monopoly game you have tucked away in the closet and have a game night with your family and friends.

Thinking About “Clue”

Retro Series Clue 1986 Edition Board Game

When I was a kid, summertime meant getting all the neighborhood kids together in the afternoon to meet on the front porch with their favorite board game. I guess our front porch was the largest or the most centrally located for our house to be so designated “board game central” . . . That worked out fine, I was never late to a game 🙂

Years later, in my adult years, I had friends who loved board games and we would get together to play one of their favorites. And one that was front and center quite a bit was none other than Clue. I guess we fancied ourselves as detectives or just liked the idea of figuring out “whodunit”. Win or lose, it was always fun.

Clue — The Movie

The board game was campy and rediculous at times . . . Then there was The Movie . . . It really brought the whole concept to life and I don’t know anyone who didn’t love it.

I’m sure you’ve seen it or heard about it . . . if not, you’re in for a fun evening with friends . . . And pick up the game, too.

Let’s view the trailer.

Once you’ve seen the movie . . . or played the game, you’ll want to get to know the characters a bit better . . . I know people who relate to the different characters as their alter-ego . . . I know I do have some strange friends.

Let’s take a look at playing the game of Clue.


Well, there you have it . . . everything you could possibly need to know about Clue . . . Except if you and your family would enjoy the game . . .

There’s only one way to find out . . . A family game night is a great thing to get the family together without all the electronic devices. It’s a good time to have family time and to work together in playing a game, putting together a jigsaw puzzle or just sitting and talking or enjoying a movie . . . 

I do hope you’ll check out the game and the movie . . . click one of the links above or go off on your own with one of the links below.
