I am a Scotsman who writes stories, not all of which are of the self-insert variety. Some of my stories are available as books; see my userpage for details.


When Rarity, Applejack, Rainbow Dash and Spike get together to play a certain property trading board game, they soon find that even friendships as strong as theirs can be put to the test — and that in the dog-eat-dog (or pony-eat-pony) world of board games, there can be only one winner.


This is just a silly little one-shot I came up with one night, while unable to sleep. Comments contain spoilers.

Ah, so true. But the Appeloosa thing was really terrible.

Edit: I think I'm first.

Loved it. Short and funny. Characters are spot-on. I didn't spot a single mistake.
Thoroughly enjoyable - have a thumbs up!

...also, I'm with A.J. When I was younger I felt like I was the only one who actually read the official rules to Monopoly. :ajsleepy:

Discord is such a troll :rainbowlaugh:
And Board Games are not good for friendships, play them with your enemies.

Huh, I've always played it the same way Dash was with the taxes-go-in-the-middle thing.
Certainly an interesting piece even if it's fairly short and simple.:twilightsmile:

Yup, sounds like how my board games end. Nicely written:twilightsmile:

This is awesome and you should feel awesome. This should be in the featured box, definitely.

A light fic. :twilightsmile:

That was good, and it does express how everyone is like when they are playing a board game, especially Monopoly (or Monopony in their case). I do, however, have to agree with Rainbow Dash. Free parking only gives you 500, and it is very hard to land on. So, we made it that if landed on taxes, we had to put the money in the middle, and whoever got Free parking would get all of it.:ajsmug:

1165123 You are not the only one. :twilightsmile:

:facehoof:why are board games so difficult

Nobody messes with Spikey-Wikey! :raritywink:

That was hilarious, point to you.

Ah Monopoly, ruining friendships and families since the Great Depression.

the Monopoly Guy is Discord in disguise. that's why one game can result in no one talking to each other for a week

This story is awesome, and I read it before it was featured! Awww yeah!

It's not featured yet, is it? It should be. Anyway, three yays and some magicks.


No, it's not featured.

And honestly? I don't expect it to be.

Funny thing that's not all board games that do that... Just Monopoly. And there are many different "rules" to that game! I've heard of epic family fights of that game.

And bringing up Spikes Growth that was a low blow!


Don't blame me! It was Rainbow Dash who brought it up! :rainbowwild:

Yep. That's how every game of Monopoly turns out. My old man is the only won who's ever wins at the game because he's the last one still at the board after everyone has already left in a fit of rage. Seriously, when I used to work at a toy store I used to tell people not to buy that game or Scrabble.

The title made me think of this:

Why do so many fics end with Discord getting released?


Given how most Monopoly games end, I felt it was the right thing to do.

And because its funny.

1176605 This is missing one thing I'f someone gets both dark blue spots.... You flip the table and leave

This is exactly what happens every time I play monopoly with my friends.I super-lose and flip out.

Do a sequel using "Risk".
Whenever I played it with my friends we would make alliances and 2 turns later back stab our ally. We got a kick out of how high the back stab count got:rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh: I think the backstabbing got up into the 70's once.

This is a hilarious story! :ajsmug: + :rainbowderp: + :raritywink: + :moustache: + Monopoly = hilarious!

Reading this story makes me wonder if they're ever going to make Monopoly My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic addition.

"Board games." Discord said to himself as he took in his freedom.

"How wonderfully chaotic."


:rainbowlaugh:+:moustache:+:applejackconfused:+:raritystarry:+Monopaly= XD XD XD XD XD XD XD XD XD XD XD XD XD XD XD

1166708 I agree with you. When me and my sister play Monopaly she always gets mad at me for winning and last time she got mad well. I asked her to please put up the game stuff and I left the room. When I got back she had dumped everything into the bow and left it on my bed. :rainbowlaugh:

Monopoly: It destroys families.

I wonder how the Mane 6 would feel about playing the MLP Monopoly game? :rainbowderp:


I've seen worse, one person owning the dark blue, the browns, the oranges and reds, all with hotels, needless to say that person was the winner, it's also a good trap :eeyup:

Monopoly, the most sinister game in existence

I think this video describes it perfectly


That was grand:moustache::raritywink::ajsmug::rainbowlaugh:

"So that anypony who lands on the Free Parking space can get it," Dash retorted, raising one of her own eyebrows. Applejack gave her a blank look, to which she rolled her eyes and sighed. "In my opinion, that Free Parking space is useless — so I've decided to give it a purpose." She explained. "Anytime somepony pays taxes, they can put the money in the middle of the board. Anypony who lands on Free Parking then gets all of it."

That's similar to how my family plays Monopoly.
