Monopoly Marathon by kt8ird

Monopoly Marathon

Molly and I played Monopoly on and off for the last 3 days. She won. Of course! I tried my best but my effort was to no avail. This photo was taken right before my downfall.

Playing with the @sandbox365 theme for the week. I used two different textures and removed a portion of the mask from the "Monopoly".

It's not so subtle but it does rather reflect my feelings of being destroyed by my 8 year old. This is a game I played with my parents and sister and brother-in-law when I was a child. We would go on for days during winter break each year. (we didn't have 2000 cable channels back then!)

PS I hid a "365" on the board for you to find. :)
Fun processing! It definitely has that Monopoly flare!

Love this. One of my favorite games but I never could win. Now I play it on my computer and make the settings so I can win. LOL

How I loved boards games in my youth (and still do!) So happy to know that in the world of technology, families still play the classics. Super capture and a fav'ing for the memories!

I haven't played Monopoly since my kids were young and I sure don't remember it looking like this!! LOL Aging myself aren't I? I like all the layers and it shows how easy you can be destroyed!!! But by an 8 year old? LOL LOL My kidsd usually whooped me too!! FAV!

Great processing

It all looks a bit surreal and beyond your grasp... which I suppose sums it up nicely! Good texture work here Kate - I also bought the Grunge course but I haven't found time to even look at it yet... and I probably never will!

Clever processing - love the game. My granddaughter used to beat me unmercifully each time we'd play and thoroughly enjoy it!

Fabulous processing! I didn't have board games when I was a kid, so I remember that I made my own monopoly game myself.

Nice use of textures Kate!
I can't find your 365 and I have been looking for awhile, it must be well hidden!

@radiogirl :) It's the dice with the $50k bill under it. Thank you for playing!!

Beautifully processed. Love the creativity. Haven't played that in such a long time...a fun game, but takes forever!!

Well fudge! I was going to say I found the 365, but you already gave it away. Nice processing Kate.
