Has anyone ever actually played a game of Monopoly to the absolute end? I never have.

If I remember correctly, everyone needs to go bankrupt but the winner,, right??

Yep, our family used to play a marathon Monopoly game over Christmas through New Years.. if it took that long. We usually would play to one winner, the others bankrupt.

The game could get tedious if no one was really trying to win, playing too safe.. we learned to buy all the Hotels we could... sort of a do or die type of playing... or no guts, no glory..

How very true, sometimes we'd all just agree that so and so was the winner based on ownership and call it a night.

It's a game that takes a very long time to play, more time then I have.
One idea is to stop playing, leaving everything in place, and continue on another day. I would rather do that then tally everyone's haul up and declare a winner. It can run for countless hours.

Trivial Pursuit is even longer. Ugh I hate that game. Monopoly is fun, we have the Pokemon and the farm version.

The last time we played it was with a 1937 version of Monopoly.
