At Geeky Hobbies, our goal is to review and curate everything fun that is out there. Whether it is a board or card game, TV show, movie, puzzle, video game, or a new hobby or interest; we are interested in reviewing and curating anything we can get our hands on. From small indie releases to blockbuster media, we try to cover it all as best as we can. If you would like us to cover your product or piece of entertainment, feel free to drop us an e-mail. Since we are interested in almost all genres, types of media, hobbies, and interests we will most likely be willing to cover your product but we still prefer you e-mail us to make sure it is a good fit for the blog. You can e-mail us at mort(at)geekyhobbies.com (make sure to change the (at) to an @ symbol). Also feel free to e-mail us any news, press releases, questions, comments, or anything else at the same address.
For reviews and previews, we will be as fair as possible but of course we cannot guarantee a positive review. We can, however, guarantee that the review or preview will be fair. In every review and preview we do, we make sure to talk about everything we like about the product as well as the things we didn’t like or think could be improved. We will always bring up the positives but if we don’t like the product we will have to be honest with our readers.
- For board, card, role-playing, outdoor, and other types of games: We accept almost all games regardless of whether they are print and play, prototypes, or final versions of the game. However, we prefer that you e-mail us when the game’s rules are mostly finalized and you have a semi-concrete release date (a Kickstarter date or a date when the game will be available for purchase). Basically, as long as the game is near completion (not in the testing stages) feel free to e-mail us whenever you like. Games that are complete (or near completion) will be reviewed while print and play, prototypes, and games that aren’t quite complete will be previewed (since it isn’t fair to give a final numerical grade to an unfinished product).
- For video games: We love all types of games from small indie games to big releases. Feel free to send codes for games you would like us to cover to mort(at)geekyhobbies.com. Just know that since there are hundreds of games released each week, we can’t get to all of them and thus can’t guarantee coverage (or when we might cover your game). However, if we like your game we will make sure to cover it in some way. We can cover games on the following platforms: PC, PS4, Wii U, PS3, Xbox 360, 3DS, Android, and most older platforms.
- For movies, documentaries, TV shows, anime, and other media: We accept DVDs, Blu-rays, 4K Ultra HD, screener copies (both physical and online screeners), as well as links to freely and legally available media (free documentaries and other media on YouTube, Vimeo, etc.).
- For puzzles, hobby stuff, collectibles, other types of entertainment, and anything else you think we might be interested in: Drop us an e-mail to see if your product is a good fit for the blog. We are always willing to try new things and will probably be interested in trying out your product.

We were playing Monopoly cheaters edition and a question was raised that we couldn't find an answer to. A player drew the card that said he could force a property trade with another player. Does he get to pick the property he wants from the other player or does that player get to pick which property they want to trade. He thought force the trade meant he could pick the property he wanted from the other player but they thought it was just the trade that was forced and they could decide which property to trade. Tears were involved!!

@Eric Mortensen, Thank you. We will make that decision before playing again.

The rules don't specifically mention how to treat this card so I would say that the players should try to come to an agreement on how it should be handled.
Since the card allows the person to force a trade, I personally think the player that drew/played the card would get to choose what properties get traded. For example they could receive an expensive property or one they really need for one of the cheapest properties on the board (that they own obviously). Technically if you wanted to be really cruel you could interpret it that they could trade one of their properties for multiple properties from the other player. I am guessing the rule was intended to be to trade one property for one other property. I would play it this way because otherwise the card would totally ruin the game.

Love the games. We play them all. Question we aren't clear on. After active player closes a line using either combinations of the dice; say she closes the red line with a 12 on the white dice, can the other players use that white 12 on their red line 12 also but not get the extra point for closing? or if active player can use the 12 white on red line and a 12 color/white combo on another line to close both lines, can the other players still use the white 12 for one of their colors but not get the closing point or are those lines of colors stopped immediately and can't be used by other players? Your clarification on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I would like to help you with your questions. Unfortunately I don't know what game you have questions about as I have wrote posts about over 1,000 different games. If you can tell me what game you are asking about I will try to help you as much as I can.

In life jr: when you are leaving an attraction do you have to count the space on the outside of the attraction as a space or is that your new starting space?
Tuesday 4th of April 2023
The instructions don't specifically mention what to do in this situation so it is ultimately up to what the players decide to do.
In my opinion I would treat the attraction as part of the space that has the sign with the name of the attraction and its cost. Therefore you wouldn't need to use a movement space to move to the space with the sign.
