If you’re anything like me, then you never know what your weekend could consist of, and I never in a million years planned on participating in a 7 hour round of the classic board game, Monopoly.

Having started the game outside on my deck, we soon realized that the sun had burned us pretty bad 5 hours in (so maybe not so soon), and so we decided to move inside. To remember our positions and the layout of the board, I took this photo so we could quickly set it back up. Stopping 20 minutes for lunch and 20 minutes for dinner, the game went on from 11:00 am to 6:00 pm. Only between two players (my friend and I) the game had been intense and we had each come close to losing several times. It was anyone’s game the last 2 hours we played. Finally though, right around 6:00 I was defeated as I went bust in cash and assets. It was a terrible feeling to have put in so much time only to lose, but that Sunday afternoon was one I will not soon forget. Never before had I experienced so much fun playing an out dated game instead of my Xbox.
