What lesson did you take away from playing the board game Monopoly? Was it that the accumulation of wealth and property leads to success and winning or that the accumulation of wealth and property leads to only to greed?

I learned how people can cheat. My sister was terrible. She never revealed how though.

I took away that it is a long and boring game. I doubt we actually finished one game in twenty

I learned how to cheat to get rich and win... Before we started playing I would grab a few extra of every bill and if I was wearing long pants I'd stick them up my pant leg or if I was wearing shorts I'd put them under my foot and just not move, then when I needed some extra cash I'd "accidentally" drop my money on the floor and come up with extra money. This technique works great and I've never been caught once doing this. Except I told my family my trick and I am no longer allowed to help set up so it's tougher to get extra money to cheat with.

I learned to count back change correctly. My mom always let me be the bank. They don't count back change any more, I think it was a mathematical kids learning. Oh, and for some sick reason I always loved to come from behind and win. If my mom was loosing I offered to switch places (she never did). Hmmm wonder what that means about wealth and your question? 😮

I disagree to a point, what I took away from it was management and expansion of interests..........
