Monopoly. Bah! Hate it. My family insists, actually my Dad, same every effing year. General madness. No laughter AT ALL, deadly.

Monopoly double bah. Give it all away, go to Jail, spend £200 each time to escape and do it again. Collaborate and go bankrupt. Be socialist.

Scrabble is the worst. Tedious.

I sulk in the corner and drink vodka. And then there’s Christmas. And Cluedo – aaaagggh.

That’s like saying chess is tedious.

Chess is mortal combat. In Scrabble you sit around on your arse bored, waiting for other people to play and hoping for luck with the letters. Just like life. Chess pure skill, brain and will. Can’t stand it.

Please, no philosophy, not until I’ve had a drink.

You should try playing Scrabble while stoned. 4 people staring at the board for eons, until the person who’s turn it is says ‘Oh, is it my go?’ Great way to pass the time away.

My girlfriend takes Scrabble very seriously. I put words down fast, she agonises. A while ago, desperate, I bought a scrabble timer and set it to 1 minute per go. Frantic and sooooo much more like fun, games lasted about 20 minutes each max – yeehah. Words were a lot shorter, pithy. Didn’t go down well, the girlfriend finally left yesterday.
