For those of us who grew up playing monopoly with our families and with other children in our youth, the idea of a grownup monopoly party might sound a bit odd. However, once you throw a monopoly party you will remember how funny monopoly playing is, how quickly it helps you get to know everybody else in the game, and what a great way to spend an evening a game of monopoly can be. Even if you are not sure that you will like it, try throwing a small monopoly party once and invite a few of your friends.
If you are self-conscious about inviting people to your monopoly party, try throwing one with a sense of humor and irony. Tell your friends and comrades to bring a few beers by for a rollicking evening of monopoly. Chances are, they will be so curious about your monopoly party and will be so intrigued by the novelty of the suggestion of an evening spent playing monopoly, they will come over to check it out even if they don't intend to stay for the whole evening. However, once the game has started, your guests will begin to remember how funny monopoly playing is, and they may want to stay for the duration of your monopoly party.
Once you've had a successful monopoly party, people will be hooked on the game, and you will be able to take your monopoly party to the next level if you so choose. To get the most social mileage out of your monopoly party, try making it a standing engagement for you and your friends. A regular monopoly party, whether it is once a week, once a month, or even once a year, can become an occasion which your entire social circle will look forward to.
A standing monopoly party sets the scene for maximum monopoly party enjoyment. A one time only individual monopoly party is fun, and the novelty will make it memorable amongst your circle of friends for quite some time, whether attendance booms or not. However, by creating a standing monopoly party you are setting the scene for a whole new level of funny monopoly playing.
A standing monopoly party allows for one of the most exciting and hilarious elements of funny monopoly playing. I am speaking, of course, of the monopoly party rivalry. Often, two or three people within a group of friends will turn out to be very good monopoly players who are always a few steps ahead of the pack of players at a monopoly party. The real competition in every game tends to come down to these few players. A standing monopoly party will allow these players to face off several times, heating up the scenario with hilarious consequences. Sometimes, playing at a low-stakes rivalry with a good friend can be a blast.
As we trash talk and make fun of the people with whom we are actually very close, we release tension and blow off some of the negativity which we've accumulated. Having a playful monopoly party rivalry with a friend may help you feel better overall while having a good deal of fun. However, remember that it is just a game, and don't go too far with your rivalry.
After all, a monopoly party is called a party for a reason, so the most important thing about a monopoly party is not winning the board game, but having fun with a group of friends.
