Do not get too excited. This is just a mock up! There is no deal with Hasbro/Parker Brothers to actually make this.
But...isn't it fun?
This is what comes of sitting around the dinner table with my family, discussing how Sammy's world might translate to the Monopoly board. By midnight I had obsessively mocked up a Sammy-opoly board. Typical me.
But I'm sure it could use improvement and I would love your ideas and input. If you see something missing or think of something you think would be better, speak up!
I chose how to group/place the properties by balancing value, location (proximity to one another in Santa Martina) and theme.
The Heavenly Hotel edged out the Senior Highrise for cheapest property, but it was a tossup!
And I love that Hudson's Porch is the most valuable property. Not Marissa's house, not the Landvogt Mansion, not East Jasmine at all...and not Hudson's house, but his porch.
I don't know about you, but whenever I play Monopoly, the most disappointing properties seem to be the ones between Free Parking (Skateboarding) and Go To Jail (Detention). They never pay off. And getting through them is such a slog. I'd rather go to jail.
Speaking of...don't overlook the little letters around the jailbird. 😉
For the 6 or 7 markers Hasbro/Parker Brothers seems to allow for special edition Monolopys I'm thinking...skateboard, binoculars, high-tops, police car, cat, catcher's mitt, horseshoe.... Other ideas?
I've got a long drive ahead of me, and on it we'll be brainstorming Chance (Shortcut) and Community Chest (Library) cards. Here are just a few early ones:
- Take a ride in Hudson's Cadillac. If you pass GO collect $200.
- The Nightie-Napper strikes again, pay $20.
- Get $50 reward for returning softball statue to city hall.
- Cracked a safe, get $100.
- Fell off skateboard, advance to the Hospital.
- Heather frames you. Go directly to Detention.
- Caught ice blocking. Slide back three spaces.
So take a gander and join the fun - give me your feedback and throw in your ideas. Let's play!
PS Like I said - we're just goofing around, but ... maybe someday!
