When was the last time you played Monopoly?

I received an email from Joe Blogs Blogger Network inviting me to a games night hosted by them and Legal & General, with the promise of a fun night, pizza and prosecco. Who could say no?

Now, investment isn’t something that’s really in my vocabulary. The last time I actually played Monopoly was about 5 years ago at Christmas, and I distinctly remember being very pissed off because I kept losing so much money. Nevertheless, now that I’m much older, and ahem… wiser, I think I can see how Monopoly can help in my real life investments.

Luckily, this games night was filled with so much fun!

I arrived in King’s Cross, after spending a lovely day eating free ice-cream from Ben & Jerry’s and walking around Camden Market, feeling a little nervous because it was my first blogger meet since last year. I was greeted by James and given my name badge with my Twitter handle and the night’s hashtag #landggamesnight – I felt super fancy.


I was given a glass of Prosecco once I got upstairs, which dutifully got refilled over the course of the night. I swear they were trying to get us drunk, haha.

We all split up into groups of 6 to 8 to begin the game. It was fun getting to know new bloggers and also seeing familiar faces. Shoutout to the people on my table: Josie, Rishi, Sam, Lauren, and Jess!

My personal goal was to own all four stations, and I managed to do just that. But lets be honest, I probably should have concentrated more on owning more land and buying more properties.

I didn’t lose too much money – although, I did end up in jail twice.

The night made me want to bust out my old Monopoly set, but I don’t even think we have all the pieces left nor any of the money. I love how you can get themed Monopoly now, like Doctor Who and Family Guy. Makes it so much more fun 🙂

Overall, the night was really good. Thank you to Joe Blogs Blogger Network and Legal & General for hosting such an entertaining games night!

    Monopoly is my least favorite board game. You know games like Munchkin and Cards Against Humanity ruins friendships lol but in good ways, of course. Glad you had a great time at the event!

    I stopped playing the Monopoly boardgames but I do enjoy playing the LINE Let’s Get Rich game which is modelled from Monopoly. It’s one of my favourite mobile games as of now.

    Oh, man, MONOPOLY. Board game-wise, I do like it, but I much prefer the Game of Life XD But Monopoly is a fun old classic, and it’s even fun when you get a lucky break and start getting money from everyone XD

    Glad you had a blast at this event! 😀
