I always wondered: how the hell do you play Monopoly ruthlessly? I mean, all I ever did was just buy almost everything I got on, provided I had enough money left, and planted houses/hotels on the most expensive streets.xmetatr0nx said:Yup, i still enjoy Monopoly and Chess on a weekly basis. Although no one really likes to play monopoly with me...i play it the way its supposed to be played, ruthlessly. Every now and then ill jump into some battleship, drunken monopoly is amazing by the way.
We are all sophisticated people here Mr.Silencer..nah, just kidding. I always win by manipulating everyone to buy and trade what I want and to who I want. Like, the guy almost certain to loose. Make someone trade him the best spots, so when he loose it's free for all.Silencer13 said:
Was just playing Arkham Horror with some friends on Tuesday. Cthulhu ate us after a ton of bad rolls. It helps to have a friends whose attention span is long enoug to read a rule book instead of button mash 'till they figure it out.Jonci said:Anytime I go to a party, I bring Arkham Horror and try to get a game going.
I use to play with my cousins, use to end in fistfights.Arcanz said:We are all sophisticated people here Mr.Silencer..nah, just kidding.

My mother and my girlfriend gets really pissed when I do that, but they don't realize it soon enough, muhahahahahah haha ha..ha..erm, well. Anyways, when they DO realize it often ends with someone slapping me or hitting me (not hard or anything, but they are family so they need to vent to be able to eat peacefully together later on). Btw, my uncle is the same. He gets hit a lot too, my family is kinda violent when it comes to board games, it's hilarious ^^
But that's with my family, with my friends... daaaamn, the hate is in the air. Nothing gets too physical or anything, but the curse words do travel fast ^^
Ah, that explains it, no one I ever played with cared about making deals, heck more than often they outlawed making deals. Backstabbing is common place here though, buying streets someone else needs to complete theirs. So much fun to watch them squirm and just buy it. But then again, since we barely make deals, it gets pretty dull and it's just a matter of who spends all of his/her money too quickly.xmetatr0nx said:As is the case when in any position of power, when you have control of the board you start making deals with the less wealthy people. Of course all these deals are for your own ends, by the time the game is coming to a close 3 hours later, everyone on the board owes you money and the only choices left is to rage quit or give me all your property. Oh yea i aim to back stab everyone playing.
