Monopoly Championships
« on: March 28, 2009, 21:38:05 »
If you're a really good Monopoly player, you might want to check this out:

"The top player at the National Championship [which will be held April 14-15, 2009 in Washington, D.C.] will win $20,580 and the honor of representing the United States at the Monopoly World Championships in Las Vegas in October 2009." (http://boardgames.about.com/b/2009/03/09/monopoly-us-national-championships-in-april.htm)

Can you imagine being able to tell your friends that you made $20 Grand playing a board game?

By the way, if you're planning on practicing, you'd better get the updated version of the game that contains the Speed Die, because that's part of the tournament now too.
"Hello IT. Have you tried turning it off and on again? ... OK, well, the button on the side. Is it glowing?... Yeah, you need to turn it on. Err, the button turns it on. Yeah, you do know how a button works, don't you? No, not on clothes." - Roy (The IT Crowd)
