I was a Monopoly Maniac as a kid, and I was a ruthless player. I played to win, and I always did. I’m not a sore loser at all, but I ruled the Monopoly board when I played with family or friends. I don’t know what it is about that game, but it turns me into a competitive beast.The ONLY game I ever lost was to my friend’s son…who was eight years old. I was probably 24, and an eight year old beat me at Monopoly. That made a bit of a dent in my ego, but we played fair and square. I was in shock when it happened, but he was so excited. I congratulated him, and he ran off to tell his mom that he was the new Monopoly champ.
