Board games can be a great way to bond with family and friends.  It can also be a great way to start a war with these same people.  That may be why my wife opens the first round of Scrabble with the word MURDER (9 points).  I had no idea that this was a common problem issue with couples until Carter said he can no longer play Monopoly with his wife due to the same issues.

There is nothing sexy about Monopoly. Just nothing. - Carter has weird fetishes

I remember when I was younger, all of the kids at my grandmother's house used to play these games relentlessly!  We didn't watch TV endlessly, or lose ourselves to pretending - we trained to take Park Place and Boardwalk.  We lusted for battle with tiny metal and plastic avatars!  That's why I bring it to the cardboard square.  I'm a board game champion - but there is a cost for the victor's mantle.
