    I don't remember the last time we had a powercut. I got all excited at work the other day 'cus all the lights around the entrance went off, and I thought we might have a powercut. Alas, they came back on after about 30 seconds. I was gutted. :(

    It's like deja vu, it was only the other day I said to Doofay that I don't even remember going anywhere. It's all quite emotional. ;(

    Ahh I havent played monopoly for aaages! Last time I did I opened a can of whoop-ass on my bf who is the self proclaimed king of monopoly. Poor thing was sulking about it for about hour:lol:

    And to answer the question. I dont think I've ever had a proper power cut, but there have been so many times that the light bulb goes in my room and then decides to be a bitch to me and refuse to come out.

    Last time I played monopoly wasn't during a black out (it was boxing day) but it caused me and my girlfriend to have the fight of the century after I started putting down houses. We're both a bit competitive...

    The last time we had a power cut was the day after I said "Am I the only person who has not had a power cut?". Ho hum. It went off about 6am and the men were around fixing the....big box thingy down the road by the time I was on my way to school, so I just got ready as per normal. But without a TV, stereo or toaster. It was like the Dark Ages. :(

    last winter we had power cut in our village and one whole st was without leccy for 6days!!! they were not amused! rest of us were back on 25hours later but they were without it for all that time- nearly all of them had electric showers and couldnt wash except in baby baths and buckets. the village fish and chip shop made absolute fortune that week, one of the few areas that wasnt affected

    My dad got so desperate for a brew that he actually got a dirty great pan out, filled it with like 2 litres of water and put it on the gas, and then tried to pour it into a mug ;o

    I always take it too far and demand that the board and everyone else stays where it is until there's a clear winner and everyone else is bankrupt. People get bored a lot quicker than I do, fuckin' pussies...

    We play that rule as well, can be a lifesaver sometimes. Some people like to play that if you land directly on the go space then you get £400 instead of £200 but that's just dumb.

    The last time we had a power cut, must of been years ago as I was still at school. Anyway, I was having a friend over for dinner afterwards, got home and the power was out... we ended up playing Heroquest by candle light eating cheese sandwiches. Was the best time I had for a long time, was really quite atmospheric.

    I now have everything in my room hooked up to a UPS - so even if there is a power cut, I can still surf the net hehe

    Our last power cut was last February when we had some snow. I spent most of that afternoon in the house, freezing cold, putting on about six coats at once. Mind you, Max, our Alsatian, was delighted to see the snow and spent hours playing in it! :D
