For this challenge I decided to go with Monopoly and because monopoly has so many different versions I did Nintendo, which had Mario Brothers, and is another one of my childhood memories.
Monopoly is a board game that originated in the United States in 1903 as a way to demonstrate that an economy which rewards wealth creation is better than one in which monopolists work under few constraints and to promote the economic theories of Henry George and in particular his ideas about taxation and women’s rights.
Monopoly has been around forever and continues to be an all time favorite among young people and adults.
Even though it's a long game we always pull it out at least once every couple of months for the whole family to play with. It's good for my children because they learn the value of money and what happens when you decide to buy all of the property within the first round. Of course I'm usually the winner, the turtle wins the race!
