      Luke 2:1-21

      2 In those days a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be registered. 2 This was the first registration when[a] Quirinius was governor of Syria. 3 And all went to be registered, each to his own town. 4 And Joseph also went up from Galilee, from the town of Nazareth, to Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and lineage of David, 5 to be registered with Mary, his betrothed,[b] who was with child. 6 And while they were there, the time came for her to give birth. 7 And she gave birth to her firstborn son and wrapped him in swaddling cloths and laid him in a manger, because there was no place for them in the inn.

      8 And in the same region there were shepherds out in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. 9 And an angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were filled with great fear. 10 And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. 11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. 12 And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.” 13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying,

      14 “Glory to God in the highest,
      and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!”[c]
      15 When the angels went away from them into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let us go over to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has made known to us.” 16 And they went with haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby lying in a manger. 17 And when they saw it, they made known the saying that had been told them concerning this child. 18 And all who heard it wondered at what the shepherds told them. 19 But Mary treasured up all these things, pondering them in her heart. 20 And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen, as it had been told them.

      21 And at the end of eight days, when he was circumcised, he was called Jesus, the name given by the angel before he was conceived in the womb.

      Monopoly success strategies for real life

      With Monopoly just having turned 80 this year, many real-life personal-finance lessons can be learned from the classic money-loving board game, which is now made in 47 languages and sold in 114 countries.

      Brian Valentine, 30, the 8th-grade teacher from Washington, D.C. who was the American representative and placed third at the World Championships in Macau offers a few tips.

      "Know what your purpose is, keep your eye on the ball, and do it without being a bully," says Valentine, who was edged out by champions from Italy and Norway.

      Some specific strategies to win in both Monopoly and life:

      * It is all about location, location, location.

      Not all properties are created equal, as every buyer needs to know. In Monopoly, some get landed on much more than others - Illinois Avenue and B&O Railroad most of all, according to the game's maker, Hasbro.

      Most competitive Monopoly players tend to focus on the orange property group (New York Ave., Tennessee Ave. and St. James Place) or the red (Illinois, Indiana and Kentucky Aves.), says Valentine.

      But some that are popular with regular players are overvalued, according to Valentine. In particular, he shies away from the yellows (Marvin Gardens, Ventnor Ave and Atlantic Ave.), greens (Pennsylvania, North Carolina and Pacific Aves.) and dark blues (Park Place and Boardwalk).

      The bottom line: Know your game, in whatever market you are playing.

      * Relationships matter.

      Even though there is now a mobile app, Monopoly is traditionally a face-to-face game. That means that how you interact with people is going to affect the outcome.

      "You can have lots of money and properties, but a lot of the game comes down to human interaction and your ability to make deals with people," says Mary Pilon, author of the book "The Monopolists" about the origins and history of the game.

      * Do not stretch yourself too thin.

      Of course you want to collect multiple properties. But if you overspend and do not keep enough of a cash cushion in reserve, then you could go bust by landing on someone else's property.

      "While I was writing the book I was also buying an apartment, so the Monopoly themes got really meta," says Pilon. "I never buy more house than I can afford, in the game or in real life. It makes me nervous just thinking about it."

      * Read your opponents.

      Just as in poker, the game is often not about the cards you are holding, but about the person holding those cards. Brian Valentine, for instance, made a concerted effort to get to know the people he was playing against at the World Championships, to gain insight and generate goodwill.

      A corollary of that: "Don't underestimate people by how they look," says Pilon. "I have a grandmother in her late 80s - tiny, churchgoing, harmless - who is an absolute killer at the Monopoly table. She turns into somebody else."

      * Buy income generators.

      Many Monopoly players turn up their noses at railroads (Reading, Pennsylvania, B&O, and Short Line) or utilities (Water Works and Electric Company). Since you cannot put houses or hotels on them, they have a much lower ceiling of how much rent you can potentially collect.

      But ignore them at your peril, because all those rent payments may become very attractive. "They won't be enough to win the game all on their own, but they will give you a constant revenue stream." says Valentine.

      * Never discount luck.

      As any successful person will tell you, luck plays a role in getting to the top. Same thing with Monopoly.

      "At the end of the day, it is still a game of dice," says Valentine. "No matter how strategic you are, you still don't really know how the game is going to turn out."

      This Guy Proposed With An Amazing Custom Monopoly Board


      We did have people throw Monopoly Houses & Hotels along with the bubbles when we got married though. We also had guest sign a Monopoly Board.

      Using the full game for the proposal, though, required an extra step of planning.

      You can be damn sure Ott said yes to Lebon's proposal.

        Here is what I was talking about before:

        Memories

        Instead of Desmond Miles, the modern day will be centered around the players themselves who act as 'research analysts' working for Abstergo Entertainment and reliving the memories of Edward Kenway through the Animus, by using Desmond's DNA.

        Really? That sounds weird but with Miles dead I guess that's the logical place for them to go with it. I don't remember the exact name used in the trailer but wasn't the Assassin's last name Kenway? I guess it's either Connor's son or a brother he didn't know about.

      • monopoly_j Elevator's not worthy.

        2 years ago

        I too am wary. ACIII was okay but left me underwhelmed. The pirate thing could be cool and the ship battles were fun but could easily be overdone. I saw something though that indicated you are working for Abstergo Entertainment or something like that. It sounded interesting.

      • VladakDracon

        2 years ago

        What do you think? I'm a little wary of it after ACIII but it still could be good. I'm guessing it's a different team than the one that worked on ACIII since the development cycle for that game was so long and this had to have been started before ACIII launched.

But I come from Denmark and is wildly with Roosterteeth, but living in a famaly named Hedegaard in denmark because I do it is because, I have no father and mother. just do not know what to do, the famillie I'm saying every time for me when you are so Comic Why are you so not a place where there are some who need a funny man, well but where? in denmark there is no such thing as RT, But, I'm Danish, but also a little English;) but can understand what Gavino says because where's country is almost near his, but what the hell, it's just so bummer for me I have no Way to get across to you? I am 17 years I can say I'm actually just as the complete Gavin free, no bullshit .... I can write a little about myself, but can GUESS that I can not in any way get to RT. There are so many who write movement, like me but, I feel so bad here at home in Denmark, PS. our Money do not grow on trees! Love you all from inside the RT and ACH. Gavin <3 Goeff <3 and all from inside the RT!

      Greetings Micke.R.H. <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 I AM NOT A HORSE! hahahahah

      Maybe you guys will have better luck in 2016. But y'all will need to pick more Christies and Huntsmans rather than Romneys and Ryans. Just sayin'.
