I wonder if I can sell Milton Bradley on the idea for a new board game using their basic idea for Monopoly? I was thinking of calling it – Narcissism: The Game.
Players would not buy and trade properties; rather they would charm, deceive and then discard people. Of course there would be extra points for how viciously the relationships were ended.
What would replace the Homes and Hotels? Maybe OW or NS?
The “Go To Jail” corner would stay the same….or could I change it to “Go To Hell instead?”
Free Parking….a ‘free’ dose of Narcissistic Supply for the N.
“Community Chest” it would definitely be “Devalue & Discard.”
“Chance” would stay the same. Since this is a game for N’s to play, maybe “Chance” should be changed to “Karma.” They would be terrified to land on that square.
The Utilities…Cerebral & Somatic.
The Railroads….Grandiosity, Magical Thinking, False Self & Empathy……What empathy?
The game board pieces…..tangible qualities of those the N covets? Mementos of the people the N has discarded?
…..I never realized how creative I can be when I am maxed out on migraine medicine!
