STUDY, another rule variation I played was all fines are put in the middle of the board. First player to land on free parking takes the lot. If nothing in the middle, then consolation of £50.
We used to play that too, Bonnie.
Gives you a bit of hope when things are looking bleak.
One of a very few I've never played is Risk

L'Attaque, military board game with playing pieces of different ranks, including the spy, the only piece that could capture the opposing commander in chief.
Better known as Stratego. Great game that I play online.

Internet has killed off board games, prize crosswords, newspapers and a lot more.
But all these board games can played on the internet. Actually I would guess there have probably been more games of chess played since the year 2000 than in the 1000 years before. Stratego, which i mentioned playing online, I have not played on an actual board since the 1980s. That is the problem if you love a board game like chess etc, if people you know aren't interested you can't play yourself. Once you can play a game online the standard will likely be far higher and it would seem a bit pointless to play a friend or relative who is not especially interested. So yeah I guess playing with actual board has been killed somewhat. Newspapers haven't been killed off though have they ? Still seem to be racks of all the ones I remember in shops. Though I must admit I stopped buying them about 10 years ago largely due to time spent online. I used to buy the Sunday Times and spend most of the day going through the 4 or 5 sections that interested me. By 2008 I was finding I had read very little of it by the time the following weekend came round.
