Halloween Costumes of the Great Old Ones

Wednesday, October 17th, 2007

No store-bought Spiderman or ghost or jokey celebrity reference or, god forbid, Paris Hilton In Jail costume is good enough for the spawn of a true acolyte of the Great Old Ones. Instead, why not dress up your child as the adorable and tentacular Elder God Cthulhu? Another in the fine tradition of reverence for the great HP Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos stories, from the LiveJournal of Allistairagator the Magnificent.

Maybe I’m Just Stuck in the 20th Century

I saw this new electronic banking version of Monopoly and I thought, how could that be as fun?  I mean, wasn’t the whole power trip of “I’m the banker” and trying to rip off your younger siblings a major part of the appeal?  Who didn’t love finding out three quarters of the way through the game that all the five hundred bills were gone and that you had to go and make a bunch on your own? Or how about my husband’s version of the game, in which it was a family tradition to try and steal money from each other.  I’m thinking I would totally miss stacking up all my hundreds and twenties and sticking them under the board so I didn’t lose any of them, whether to an errant breeze or some sticky fingers.

On Amazon, they list the features of the game, and one of them is “An experience that capitalizes on today’s trend of a cashless society.” While I agree that we are moving to a cashless society, I’m not sure I would promote that as a reason to buy the game.

What about you?  Is it not the same without the itty bitty monies, or would an electronic version just make life that much easier?
