Question of the Day

Tom Allen of Music & Company on CBC Radio2 mentioned that today is believed to be the anniversary of the patenting of the board game Monopoly in 1935. The history of the game is shrouded in a bit of mystery, but nevertheless, it is probably the most popular board game ever released. It made me remember some marathon Monopoly sessions I played as a kid along with other games like Sorry!, Life, Parcheesi, Scrabble, and lots of other games that occupied rainy afternoons and winter evenings. So…

What’s your favorite board game?

I’d say Scrabble is mine because I love words and crossword puzzles. (And “harknef” IS a word.) But I’m also pretty good at Trivial Pursuit
