I used to play Monopoly a lot, haven't played for a long time now. It's an old classic, although as far as game design goes it's very poorly designed. As for what I currently play... I play Magic: The Gathering occasionally, as well as the odd game of Cluedo, Pandemic and whatever other board game my sister has. My personal favourite at the moment though is the Discworld Ankh-Morpork board game
Did you miss me?
Perhaps love is like a resting place, a shelter from the storm
It exists to give you comfort, it is there to keep you warm
And in those times of trouble when you are most alone
The memory of love will bring you home
Perhaps love is like a window, perhaps an open door
It invites you to come closer, it wants to show you more
And even if you lose yourself and don't know what to do
The memory of love will see you through
Oh, love to some is like a cloud, to some as strong as steel
For some a way of living, for some a way to feel
And some say love is holding on and some say letting go
And some say love is everything and some say they don't know
Perhaps love is like the ocean, full of conflict, full of pain
Like a fire when it's cold outside or thunder when it rains
If I should live forever and all my dreams come true, my memories of love will be of you...
So my sister got me MLP cupcakes instead of a birthday cake.
They are really nice
Dunno who this Songbird is though, but she sure tastes great
If you can feel what I am feeling
Then the truth is just believing
You're my, you're my diamond girl
Well, Tamatoa hasn't always been this glam
I was a drab little crab once
Now I know I can be happy as a clam
Because I'm beautiful baby
Did your granny say, "Listen to your heart"?
"Be who you are on the inside"?
I need three words to tear her argument apart
Your granny lied
I'd rather be shiny
Like a treasure from a sunken pirate wreck
Scrub the deck and make it look shiny
I will sparkle like a wealthy woman's neck
Just a sec, don't you know?
Fish are dumb, dumb, dumb
They chase anything that glitters, beginners
Oh, and here they come, come, come
To the brightest thing that glitters
Mmm, fish dinners

Well, well, well
Little Maui's having trouble with his look
You little semi-demi-mini-god
Ouch! What a terrible performance
Get the hook! (Get it?)
You don't swing it like you used to, man
Yet I have to give you credit for my start
And your tattoos on the outside
For just like you I made myself a work of art
I'll never hide, I can't
I'm too shiny
Watch me dazzle like a diamond in the rough
Strut my stuff, my stuff is so shiny
Send your armies but they'll never be enough
My shell's too tough, Maui man
You could try, try, try
But you can't expect a demigod
To beat a decapod (Look it up)
You will die, die, die
Now it's time for me to take apart
Your aching heart
Far from the ones who abandoned you
Chasing the love of these humans
Who made you feel wanted
You try to be tough
But your armor's just not hard enough!
Maui! Now it's time to kick your heinie!
Ever seen someone so
Soak it in cause it's the last you'll ever see
C'est la vie mon ami, I'm so shiny
Now I eat you so prepare your final plea
Just for me
You'll never be quite as shiny
You wish you were nice and shiny...
Happy new year
It sucks already
As others have said, depends on the content being unlocked. If it's purely cosmetic, like skins (or mounts/transmog items in WoW) then I don't mind, even if the game itself is one you pay for. If it's required to progress in the game, then no, I do not like. It's not so bad if the micro transaction merely speeds things up, but even then I don't typically like it, because most games in my experience make it progressively harder to advance. One game I think has done it perfectly is the mobile game Plague Inc. Free to play, can pay a small amount to remove ads and allow for speed up of in game time, and you can also pay (also small amounts) to unlock content- but said content is pretty easy to unlock through just playing the game.
Best Christmas present!
I would suggest that a lot of nastiness of the Everfree Forest was expectation- you've been told it's very dangerous, no-one knows anyone who's been in there... but it's really not as bad as that, though still dangerous, and so by now the mane 6 are used to it, it seems much less threatening
In other news, Merry Christmas from the UK.
