I can remember as a kid on many cold or otherwise boring days, play oodles of board games with my family and friends. It was so much fun and I have lots of warm memories. Today, my family is really big on playing games as well, especially board games. Everyone is familiar with Monopoly, The Fast-Dealing Property Trading Game. It’s one of our favorite games, and we’ve worn out several of them over the years.
Recently, Hasbro came out with a new version called ‘My Monopoly‘. In this version, you can customize your own board and the pieces with your own favorite pictures. How cool is that? First, I want to mention that you can still use the game without customizing it, but why not amp up your fun and showcase your game skills with cherished family, pet, and property photos?
This game comes with the boardgame, 30 blank tiles, 4 tokens, 4 sticker sheets (30 stickers on each sheet), 28 property cards, 16 community chest cards, 16 chance cards, 2 dice, 32 green houses, 12 hotels, lots of paper cash, and a user guide.
You can use a mobile device or tablet, but you’ll need to download the free My Monopoly app from the app store Google Play. Or you can use a Mac or PC computer like me, and to Mymonopoly.com and follow the online instructions. Here you’ll be able to download your images from any of your social media, or from your own personal files. You’ll be able to edit and add captions to any image as well. We had a lot of fun adding silly and fun captions to some of your photos. When you’ve decided on the photo’s and have them exactly as you like, you will be prompted to drag them to an online sticker sheet, then press print. Uber easy!
Once printed, you simply place your customized photo on the blank tiles (both sides can be used), chance & community cards, or the token cards within the dotted outline. You can place your customized tiles anywhere on the board, they don’t have to remain in one place. This game is so versatile, you are only limited by your imagination. We love looking at our photos on the gameboard, it’s heartwarming and will leave lots of fond memories for our family.
Christmas is less than four months away, I know, but I like to plan way ahead of time. This new My Monopoly game would make an awesome gift and I would definitely recommend it.
