Still reeling from the deluge of news discussed in the Tamashii show we jump back into our acquisitions. Kyle backs team Cap, Sal feels trapped by his jaw, Vince goes for the gold in Barbados, and boy can Craig Drag-on. The extraordinary fanboy then delivers an unintentional double dose of crack as we plan to play Repacked Monopoly and discuss the latest boy band to come on the scene.
Here’s a deep personal secret of mine that I have never told anyone, mostly ‘because no one would care: I have never finished a game of Monopoly.
I know, I know, but honestly I have never found the game to be particularly engaging, in fact I don’t think I’ve seen anyone playing it in years, which is why I am more than baffled that there are currently like a million, billion different versions of the game out there, from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to Mass Effect. Seriously, Zelda Monopoly I could understand but Street Fighter Monopoly? How does that even work!?
Anyways, my question for you is, Is there any particular reason for this Monopoly revival? Like, did the game suddenly got much more entertaining or is there some sort of underground, Fight Club-esque ring of monopoly players that I am unaware of? I am still not playing the game but I would really like to know.
And speaking of things I would like to know for no real reason…
BONUS CRACK QUESTION:
If democracy suddenly collapsed and were replaced with a global Dance-based monarchy, which toys from your collection (at least two) would you choose to be part of your very own Dance troupe?
PS: Abruptly changing the subject, I liked Batman V Superman but the editing on that movie was downright terrible.
Hoping for a Batman V Monopoly movie, Ivanhobe, The Extraordinary Fanboy.
