Growing up, I always hated Monopoly. Maybe because it requires too much strategy, dated game pieces like 'top hat' and 'flat iron', or maybe because whenever there's a game out there that comes with play money, the competition gets ugly pretty fast.
However, those of us who are still pulled to the board by game-obsessed friends and family members, there's a whole new version that's (arguably) much more tolerable to play - and it involves cats. So many cats. (Do you hear that,@RaquelArredondo? So. Many. Cats.)
Meet Cat-Opoly - where you buy cats instead of Atlantic City real estate.
They tossed away the Scottish Terrier and thimble for more cat-themed game pieces, like tuna, mice, and yarn.
The chance cards? Well, let's just say that things can be PURRRFECT! or a total CAT-ASTROPHE!
And - perhaps my favorite part - instead of going to 'jail', you FALL INTO WATER.
Is this the board game that will have you changing your mind about Monopoly? Would you want to give this game a shot?
