Do you like to play cards? I enjoy a good card game – as long as I know the rules. I tend to have a big learning curve when it comes to cards. It takes a while for me to find my groove, but once I’ve found it, watch out!
Do you love board games? I am a big fan of board games, but I have to admit some of these newfangled games are super complicated. By the time I have the rules memorized, I could have played a few retro board games – like Scrabble, Risk, Clue, or Monopoly especially. I guess it turns out that I am an old school board game fan. Give me a game of Monopoly any day or night!
What about you? Do you love Monopoly – or did you when you were younger? When I was growing up, everyone was crazy for Monopoly. Each kid had their own set of special rules! (Did you put your money under Free Parking? We did!) I love how the game of Monopoly can be quite simple to begin with but gets more complicated over time. To me, there’s nothing cozier than spending a dark and cold winter night playing an interminable Monopoly game. I love how the tension and drama builds with Monopoly over time. It’s so much fun!
If you’re anything like me, you had a prized Monopoly piece as a kid. And I don’t know about you, but I would fight to make sure I got to be that piece… (mine was the “dog”). Your friend group may have been different, but in mine, no one wanted to be the thimble. (I would kind of like to be it now though!)That’s how I became inspired to write my latest quiz, What Monopoly Piece Are You? Find out which Monopoly piece you should be fighting for!

Do you play chess? I used to play chess a lot when I was young – only casually though! I was no Bobby Fischer 🙂 It has been one of my goals to pick chess back up as an adult, but it seems so intimidating now. I’ll probably have to start off playing a computer. Not that computers are easier to beat than humans – just the opposite in fact. I just know a computer won’t judge me for being a bad player!
Even if you don’t play chess, you probably understand how the game relates to real life. Like chess, life is all about strategy and power. It’s less about the particular pieces and moves and more about playing with the board you’re given. Whether you’ve played chess hundreds of times or never touched a chess board, I am sure that you can get the dynamics of a chess game. It’s like any other one on one game in life.
We all play different pieces on the figurative chessboard in everyday life, and these pieces change over time. Some of us feel like pawns with very few options. Others feel like kings – with all the power to lose and protect. Others feel like queens – well taken care of but ready to strike when necessary. Some of us feel like knights and move a little different than the rest of the world.
