Computer's a Banker

Well, I didn't win Monopoly. To be honest, I don't think I've ever won a game of Monopoly in my life, and I've played enough of them. The rules were pretty much all there in this version and faithfully adapted, but I was never going to spend a great deal of time on a two-player, text-only version of the board game. The computer beat me fair and square - he romped around the board buying up everything and surfing on Chance cards, while I followed in his wake, landing on all of his properties and picking up tax cards. In that way, it was very similar to every other monopoly game I've ever played. I enjoy the board game, for all its faults, but like so many board game conversions, it's only fun when you're playing against real people. 'Nuff said, time to move on.

Next up on the randometer is...Power Drive! It's an arcade-style rally game. They're never my most loved titles, but I'll give it a go.
