Frosted Flakes: Monopoly; Strategy or Luck?

It’s Spring Break week in my household. We have been waiting what feels like years for this week. We aren’t doing anything special, but are excited to just relax and hang out.

Last night my 8 year old wanted to play a game, he decided that now that he’s 8, he can play regular Monopoly. After going on a beverage and snack run (these things are needed for this never ending game) we told him that would be fine. My 5 year old decided he would play on his own as well.

After many hours, my husband ended up as the winner, as usual. I was the second one out. I never stay in the game to the end. My husband claims that it’s all luck, but I don’t think I could lose 100% of the time if it was all luck and no strategy. My older brother, Cody always beat me when we played too. There’s got to be strategy to the game that I have just never cared enough to figure out completely.

What do you think, is winning at Monopoly due to strategy or luck?

Here are your Flakes.
