Tahoe Journal – Flag Day 1996

Friday, June 14, 1996 (Flag Day)

At about 1:30, we arrived at the cabin. I got to teach Grandma how to play Mancala, and she won against Carlo! Pretty good teaching, huh?

Me, Carlo, & Kara decided to play a friendly game of Monopoly at about 2:00. Kara dropped out about half-way through the game, and I got her properties. Eventually I had almost all of the properties, including Boardwalk and Park Place, both of which having hotels. At the end, I had $1,999, almost all of the properties (excluding three), and a “Get Out of Jail Free” card, at about 4:20, the longest game I had ever played!
