Monopoly is Ruining my Life


It’s official, Monopoly is ruining my life.

I bought the game about a week ago, mostly on the recommendation on a buddy of mine. He loved the game, and told me that it was one of the best time wasters he had purchased in the past year. I’m always down for a mindless game or two, so why not spend the $6 and go for it, right?

Next thing I know, I’ve spent an hour playing the game. An hour or so later, I’m playing it while I’m watching a movie at the house, and later that night I’m playing it while I’m working. It gets to the point where I’m charging the iPhone more just to play the game, at one point, four times in a day. That’s right, four times.

Now I’m not saying that this is a bad game. It’s fantastic, really, perfect for a quick game at the doctor’s office or on a plane trip from Phoenix to Boston. But if you ever want to get some work accomplished or see your significant other again, maybe you should pass on this one.
