Why are board games boring? Write in them instead!!

On my #dailycommute this morning I was listening to the radio as usual and they were debating whether board games were boring and why we kept insisting on playing them – monopoly in particular. Personally I am not a huge fan of monopoly, but it is the classic board game, the one everyone has, and the one that seems to keep reinventing itself? Monopoly City anyone?


The discussion reminded me of some great monopoly notebooks I had come across a while back. A particular favourite is the “bright ideas” one (pictured – picture credit). Something to add to the wish list I think as it reminds me of my childhood days.

And for those of you who make their own notebooks – if you have not already tried it, why not up-cycle/re-cycle a board game for a hard back cover.

  1. I love Monopoly! I don’t think it’s boring at all. However, my favourite classic board game has to be Scrabble. I can play that over and over again for hours! I think maybe people who don’t like board games are boring 😛

  2. Ooh scrabble – I do love scrabble. Their are such great scrabble mugs and magnets everywhere at the moment.

  4. Cool notebook! It’s sad they’re still talking about Monopoly when many of the games from the last 15 years are so much better (Ticket to Ride, Carcassonne, Settlers of Catan….).
