the speed of....

Ok… I get, and actually appreciate, this ‘fast’ world we live in. The microwave oven, the express lane and now the self checkout lane, fast food and the drive thru, news at the click of a remote of computer button and even Tivo allowing us to skip the commercials within our favorite TV show….it’s all good in my book.

But there are certain things in life you have to take time and enjoy. My kids, spending that ‘away time’ with my wife that comes only far and few times a year, a 16oz prime rib with au jus and french fries with a glass of ice tea and a good game of Monopoly. Unfortunately, even this fast paced world has a grip on this classic board game.

Walking through Walmart tonight I came upon an isle end cap with this version of Monopoly proudly displayed. Monopoly Speed Die edition. Come on folks. We can’t sit down anymore to even play a game of Monopoly? We need the Speed Die edition so we can ‘play faster’?
Is this the new way to get-rich-quick?

you would hate the gamecube version. You can play monopoly in like 20 minutes.
