Wow.... they just argued and she slapped him. I can't believe she was arrested for that.

Watch out. Jungle Speed is next. It'll be charged as a stabbing.

Police in some areas don't take domestic violence in any form lightly, I still found it odd that it all happened over a game.

I have been playing Monopoly recently with some co workers.  That game can be a major piss off and if your upset with your partner all ready, I could see slapping them.
Thanks,

Ok, that's pretty cool.

I just spent the last several minutes playing "The Royal Game of UR" online and it's pretty neat.  A bit like backgammon really.
