Inspired by @Squidboy: is there a popular board game more agonizing to play than Monopoly?
Definitely Risk. I only start a game when I can spare a weeks worth of time.
Hole up in Australia and prepare for a 30 minute long siege.
Monopoly is awful with people who play it wrong
Chutes and Ladders could be. When you would get to square 90-something and land on that chute the slid you down to square 20-something, it was sheer agony; you knew had lost the game when that happened.
Monopoly is actually a very boring and I enlightened game to me. Any game that is predicted that much on rolling the dice is merely doing what’s told.
Trivial Pursuit can take a long time to play which makes it agonizing. But we get beyond cutthroat when playing Monopoly. There were actually tears once. 😳
People play monopoly wrong. The stupid house rules of sticking money into the “free parking” pot just extends the game for no reason. Also, the house rule about having to go around Go one time before buying starts and the rule that people don’t follow (auctioning off property that the person who landed on it don’t want to or can’t buy), also extend the game.
The free parking money rule is essential part of the game.
It’s not, at all. It just needlessly extends the game.
It's one of the best parts of the game.
No, because it is the longest. It could take days!
Chess, if you’re playing a stronger opponent.
Any of them.
Risk goes on almost as long. Or regular chess (not speed chess) which seems to go on ffoorreevveerrrrrr.
Monopoly is fun.
One of the best family games.
I LOVE Exploding Kittens!
Exploding Kittens doesn’t usually last nearly as long, and more importantly isn’t even a board game!
It’s not technically a board game, true. And every time I’ve ever played a round it hasn’t lasted more than half an hour. There’s a very clear ending point, as well.
Life was pretty bad
Risk is a mother fucker.
Yes it is !
At least with risk, you can make a bunch of stupid attacks (or riskier, but potentially highly rewarding attacks) if you want to end the game sooner.
Campaign For North Africa.
Risk can take a long time to play.
I was just going to say that!
