Today, 78 years ago, Monopoly made it's debut!

So in honor of the birthday:

Do you enjoy playing Monopoly?

If so, is it a friendly game, or a cut throat game of strategy and wheeling and dealing?

What is your favorite Monopoly piece to play with?

Do you play with the same piece all the time?

I always used the thimble.  I was never good at it and NEVER won whenever I played, LOL.

We do like to play but not often as it takes so long.  Between DH and I and the kids it's friendlly, but when we played with DH's cousin and his family last Thanksgiving it was so cut throat.  Lots of wheeling and dealing.  My favorite piece is the dog if we are playing the normal version (we have several different versions) and yes I try to play the same piece each time.

 I would like it better if it didn't take so long to play

Because my parents kicked me out the house to play all the time, even when it was raining (florida) I would go to a friends house and play monopoly,  so it no longer takes long anymore. It's kind of like chess.  With equal ability partners it takes forever, with one that is good at it, less than 45 minutes.
