Look on the bright side.

Monopoly was actually another game that was designed as a critique of capitalism before someone else stole the idea from her.

What’s Culdcept like? I hear that compared to Monopoly too and the new 3DS one looks interesting.

Nintendo's direction as of late seems to be: go back to what works/what people want. Nobody likes the car and they just did a Best-Of Mario Party--I'd bet they'll do it old school for the next one

10 had a mode that played like the old games. It just required an amiibo and the boards were pretty basic.

My biggest issue with the new mario parties are how drat short they are. If I'm sitting down to play a game with friends I think we all have the attention span to focus on something for more than twenty minutes

I bought Monopoly Gamer (the one with Mario characters, power ups and bosses) and I thinks it’s ok.
Played it with some friends and thanks to the power ups you play more aggressive and faster. It’s still Monopoly but you can throw shells at your friends to rob them of their coins

Well, Miiverse is gonna die in about an hour and I guess I'd like to say some final words.
As someone who avoids social media like twitter and facebook I enjoyed having a platform to talk about games without having to worry about real world issues creeping their way in. Plus I always enjoyed being one of the first people to upload screenshots and share thoughts when a new game was added to miiverse.
Miiverse was definitely not perfect, but I will miss it and hope for a similar & improved service on Switch one day.

I’ll miss it too. I rarely checked it directly but I liked to post and see content directly in games. I especially liked how Wind Waker HD, 3D World, Splatoon, Smash 4 and Mario Maker utilized it. It added a lot to the experience and those games will miss something now.

Splatoon 2 has its Miiverse inspired posts, I really hope Smash Switch and especially Mario Maker Switch has something similar.

Maybe homebrewers can set up a shadow Miiverse to keep things going eventually.
