LotR Monopoly? Can't Post

I just ordered mine off ebay. Very exciting!
Anyone who's played it...How is it?

I find normal Monopoly to be kinda boring.
I'm hoping this will keep my impatient scatter-brained mind entertained Smile



Live...Love...ROCK!

Didn't know there was a LOTR monopoly [In reply to] Can't Post

Sounds cool! I have Star Wars The Clone Wars monopoly, and I agree, regular monoploy is boring. Laugh

I have it, and have played it.... [In reply to] Can't Post

It was ok. I've never been a huge monopoly fan but had to have this since it was LOTR related, ha! It's a nice twist on the classic game. Enjoy!

It's the only Monopoly I play now. [In reply to] Can't Post

It's sorta fun to call out "buying Mordor for 400 bucks". In the game it's called "power", but we just call it money...

The Ring is also a lot of fun to play with, though we never use it as a stopping point. We just stop when we're bored, which usually happens when one person is dominating the world, hehe.

NARF since age 8, when I refused to read the Hobbit because the cover looked boring and icky.

I've got it [In reply to] Can't Post

Though we don't play it much anymore. Apparently I was "too aggressive" when we used to play it! Angelic

I have it [In reply to] Can't Post

I don't actually play it much, 'cuz I'm not a big Monopoly fan, but I had to have it 'cuz it's LoTR. I much prefer the LoTR Trivial Pursuit. Cool

Ahhh, you're one of 'those players' [In reply to] Can't Post

I'd love to be a spectator watching you and my BG play.

He and I sat down the evening we bought the LOTR Monopoly game to play what I thought was going to be a laid-back session of reacquainting ourselves with Monopoly via Middle-earth. Less than 45 minutes later I was completely bankrupt with no hope of making the least little move without going further into debt from paying exhorbitant rents to my ruthless better half, lol. PirateLaugh

Needless to say, we haven't played since. I prefer to play something where I at least have a chance. WinkLaugh

We're called "sharks". =) [In reply to] Can't Post

At regular Monopoly, that is. My LotR version is still unopened.

I would never play Monopoly with Ugly Troll, even LOTR-style. [In reply to] Can't Post

Or Risk. I like him too much. :o)

We bought the LOTR Trivial Pursuit but only played it once or twice. IIRC the answers werenít always accurate.

The only board game I do play with him is the occasional game of Scrabble. Even then, he complains through the thing that Iím going to beat him, even though heís usually ahead through most of the game. I donít think Iíve ever won against him, either. *rolls eyes*

I'm afraid the term "laid-back" isn't in my Monopoly dictionary!! [In reply to] Can't Post

I'll be the first to admit I get a bit carried away with most board games. I'm not sure why. I start off with the best of intentions, and it quickly descends into madness! Tongue

Neil stopped playing with me for the same reasons you stopped playing with BG. Though he also said I got a little too vocal! Think I frightened him, lol.Blush
