I know summer vacation is almost over when my kids are so desperate for something to do, that they pull out the Monopoly game.
We have 4 versions.
The classic original, the Disney version with Mickey and all of his friends, the version using a credit card instead of cash (which I have yet to play, but don't think I would like),
and my personal favorite, the Pixar version.
I, of course, always try to buy Ratatouille (sp?) properties and the mouse if my favorite game piece.
My other favorite investments are the transportation ones.
Instead of railroads, it's the Dinocopter from "Cars", Towmater Towing also from "Cars", The Incredibles' car and one other I can't remember.
We have had the game out for two days now and currently my daughter Victoria is winning since she bought the green properties just pass "Go to Jail" and loaded them with traffic cones (from the movie "Toy Story 2" and replace houses in the orignal Monopoly game).
The game is now tedious as we all just wait to go bankrupt as one person (Victoria) collects ridiculous rents.
The kids go back to school August 17th here.
I am starting to count the days until my vacation starts.
