Why? why would we break tradition?
This years game was given to us by my husbands boss. (What a nice, thoughtful, fun gift!) So when my husband brought it home, confessed he had peeked, told the boys it was Monopoly- NHL version. They begged and pleaded that we could play it for FHE AND on Christmas Eve.
We caved. It was a lot of fun. There are stickers of NHL teams and you get to place them on the board. So it was funny to hear which teams got which spaces on the board.
For example our "Board Walk" is San Jose Sharks. My husbands favorite team.
I'll confess- I didn't play. I was playing with son#4 so the older boys could play and learn the game in peace.
But they had alot of fun.
I can tell this will become a new family favorite.
