Playing board games with my family was one of the things I loved to do growing up. We often would have Game Night with the neighbors. It meant that there would be great snacks and we could stay up late so winning didn't really matter we just had fun.

I really can't remember the last time I sat down and played a board game. I know back in the 90s friends and I would get together for Pictionary and Risk but at some point, it turned into card games. Even with my parents we eventually started playing bridge. Then in my forties, I feel like it was only poker nights. Somehow I went from playing chess in catholic school to board games at home in my teens to poker night as a grown-up.

Recently I have been thinking I want to get back to board games. Back to the classics like Monopoly. Full disclosure it is because they now have a Yellowstone Version. It also was the game of choice around my house growing up. Last week I was at Macy's at the Poughkeepsie Galleria and noticed that they now have a Toys R US section. I didn't have time to explore for a good Monopoly game but I am thinking with the holidays around the corner it might be a good place to look. If I want Yellowstone Monopoly I think that will have to be bought online.

How Many Versions of Monopoly are there in the World?

I also think I am going to scan a few Hudson Valley bookstores and specialty gift shops. Monopoly was one of the first games to develop versions beyond the original. I think my College may even have a version of Monopoly. I went looking to see just how many there are and apparently there could be as many as 7,000 according to Monopolyland.com. There are new versions being released every day there is even a schedule for release that you can see on WorldofMonopoly.com.
