Announcement: Semi-Hiatus

Posted in Announcement with tags , , on January 16, 2012 by The Retro-ish Gaming Critic

It’s been coming for a little while now. Between health concerns and other real-life issues, I just no longer have the time to update this site every weekday anymore, so–this blog is going on a semi-hiatus.

Now, White Wolf and I will still update the site now and then, and I’ll post a Let’s Play to my YouTube channel here and there, but I can no longer offer a five-day-a-week update schedule. I hope to be able to get back to it, and I’ll know one way or the other for sure by the end of February, so I’ll post news as I get it.

I’ve enjoyed the heck out of the near-year this site’s been going. We’ve explored some interesting ideas, had interesting discussions, and reviewed more than a few games. I don’t want to give all of that up willingly; I’m fighting tooth and nail, but sometimes one has to concede a battle to win the war.

I’m incredibly appreciative of the support I’ve received here, and look forward to getting back into the swing of things full time. Until then, happy gaming, and happy Winter-een-mas!

Today we are going to take a look at possible the most popular board game ever, Monopoly. As far back as I can remember Monopoly was a game we played often. Growing up with little money for games and outside activities, Monopoly was a game we could all get together and play. I have fond memories of playing with my mom and brothers, whether it was a sunny day or snowy one.
Monopoly has been around for 75 years. That’s older than some of our grandparents. With more than 275 million games having been sold worldwide and available in 111 countries and 43 languages it is apparent that than game is not going anywhere and will out live many of us. There are many specialized editions of the classic game and range even more varies than chess. The sets can be anything from classic to Star Trek and Star Wars, police, fire fighters, world events and so on.
