Pack Rat smells like we sound, we’re lost in a crowd, and we’re hungry like the wolf
Rainy days were always rough growing up. Who didn’t wish for some sort of Cat In the Hat like interventionist to come in and shake up those rainy day blues? What I got instead was my mom dragging out that God aweful Monopoly board, which took forever to set up and twice as long to play. Only later in life did I discover she found the game as tedious as my brother and I (I guess it was better than the total anarchy that would have occurred if we tried to entertain ourselves). But, after seeing this hilarious Monopoly Smackdown print by artist John Tebeau ($19), I think that all the game really needs is a fresh marketing campaign and a bold new look to make it more exciting. Dear Parker Brothers, please get on that. Because the red houses and green hotels? Totally not working for me.
