Campfire Violation: Pay $200!

Red Mel joined us for Easter Sunday which included playing board games.   I enjoyed her travel version of Pointless but thought that I'd show off Louis' gorgeous and non standard Monopoly set in today's post  It's one of the much loved souvenirs that we bought at the Old Faithful souvenir store last year. The counters include a tent, a canoe and a bison.  Instead of stations there are outdoor activities and of course Yellowstone rightfully replaces Mayfair.  Louis trashed us. He's a very inventive wheeler dealer!

  1. I love monopoly. This Christmas my eldest son and daughter in law were with us. My son bought a monopoly made up of all the places of interest near where I live and where he had lived as a child including the hell fire caves West Wycombe park and mausoleum and Hughenden manor home of Disraeli. All are within a couple of miles of his childhood home. It was great fun.

  3. Many years ago I made my own which I called Stereopoly, which was based on our home town in England, and our home here. We never played much, so the board became an 'art work', and was hung on the wall in the loo.

    1. Brilliant! If you've still got it there's an idea for a blog post. I'd be interested to see it xx

  4. I am that unlucky person in games of Monopoly who rarely lands on anything to buy and ends up funding everyone else's lifestyle through my rent! But I still enjoy it. We stayed in a b&b in France last year that had an entire room dedicated to the game, including a giant board covering the entire ceiling! I might do a blog post about it if I can find the photos...

    1. My tactic to help change your fortunes: Get the stations (or outdoor activities in the Yellowstone version). They bring in a nice income without forking out on all those properties. I was never a very enthusiastic landlady in real life. It comes with too much responsibility! x
