You probably think of Monopoly as that excruciating board game you have to play with your family, unless your mom likes to make her nephews cry and it gets banned from the house (thanks, Mom!). It turns out it's not the Parker Bros.' fault that the game is so mind-numbingly dull -- it's yours. You've been playing it wrong all these years.
The public has spoken and Monopoly will cast away the boring old iron token, a symbol of domestic housework from a simpler time (it's not even an electric iron), which has been included in the board game for almost 80 years.
In its place will be a cat. Hey, are you really that surprised? The internet loves cats.
Sorry 'Monopoly' fans, you're going to have to say good-bye to one iconic game piece soon. According to a recent Facebook post, 'Monopoly' wants their fans to vote on which piece is their favorite. The item with the fewest votes will be kicked out of the game, 'American Idol'-style.
When you look at someone, you are immediately drawn to their eyes. Scientists have been unsure if this is because humans are programmed to stare at eyes or at faces in general.
Alan Kingstone, a psychologist at the University of British Columbia, had been working on this quandary and was having trouble thinking of an experiment which separated the eyes from the center of the face. He was telling h
Being a pro athlete takes a ridiculous amount of hard work and dedication. You have to watch your diet to the most detailed calorie. You have to do an ungodly amount of strength and endurance training. You put your career, future and life on the line every time you take the playing field. Believe it or not, the same can be said for pro-horseshoes throwers.
One would think after the 'Battleship' debacle there'd be a reluctance to base movies on board games. Alas, Hasbro recently signed a deal with Universal to bring more games to the big screen, including (yes, this is real) 'Hungry Hungry Hippos.'
Did you see comedian Josh Androsky on 'The Price Is Right'? When he got pulled from the audience to compete on the game show, he was only too thrilled to "come on down," but not for the reasons you think.
In a move that basically seems like the worst idea ever, the self-proclaimed "skateboard rabbi" got drunk and took a bunch of shrooms before going on 'The Price is Right.'
It's not everyday that you get to see Mitt Romney smacked in the face with a hot dog or President Obama trounced with a balloon sword... Until now. Thanks to a new, free phone game called Vote!!!, you can see it every day. It might seem like they've lost sight of the point of democratic elections by making the two presidential candidates go toe-to-toe, but the folks at Epic Games could actually be
Good news, grownups of the world who still make a concerted effort not to step on the cracks in the sidewalk -- you're not alone! As this charming video shows, a lot of the unspoken games you played as a child were apparently universal, and lots of adults still play them. So you can quit worrying that you're completely neurotic and just enjoy yourself.
The popular iPhone app Ready Steady Bang puts the fun back in shooting people.
In the game, two cowboys (one of them being you) engage in a low-tech animated shoot out... but it's funner than it sounds. Just like the creatively-kill-yourself-with-office-supplies game from Adult Swim, you must use your imagination and find the best (and most fun) way to blast your opponent.

The CW is currently developing a reality show based on musical chairs.
They're calling it 'Extreme Musical Chairs' and, according to Variety, it "would transform the popular children’s game into a physically demanding competition with multiple rounds of elimination set in an indoor obstacle course."
