Monopoly for everyone

Monopoly has been around longer than most of us, since the 1930s!
It has been one of Daddy’s favourite games during his growing up years.

Amazingly, Monopoly is now Wei and Kang’s favourite game too !

Some of the “cheats” and fun remain the same too, example :
– we keep quiet and hope landlord forget our rent, when we step on his property :p
– we cheer when someone is sent to jail (from Community Card)
– or when someone forfeit his $200 income if he steps on the “fouth-square” !

Monopoly is timeless, Singapore is ever changing too.
Hasbro came up with a two-sided monopoly “Then & Now” to cater to players both young and old.

Essentially, same square, but different buildings, example :
– THEN “General Post Office, NOW “The Fullerton Hotel”
– THEN “Coleman Market”, NOW “Lau Pa Sat”

Players both young and old can literally walk through Singapore’s history from colonial to present day.

Kids will understand more about money management, and that most parents do not own a bank.

Has anything changed over the years? Transport has been upgraded.

Due to inflation, rental and property prices have balloon, we now need credit cards to finance your purchase and transactions.

Monopoly’s symbolic tokens, Daddy told us last time got wheelbarrow, rolls-royce, iron and Hat? We thought the Durian is cool haha !

Kang pondering his next purchase.

Thanks to Hasbro, we have three set of Monopoly (worth $79.90) to give away.
You just need to “Like our Fanpage“, and “Comment” your unforgettable moment with Monopoly. Winners will be announced on this coming Sat 14th at 11PM.

  1. Monopoly is definitely a very memorable childhood boardgame. Especially now as an adult, we are playing the REAL monopoly, stepping anywhere in Singapore or any part of the world cost us $$$. So the ultimate winner as usual is the landlord, no matter whether you are in the real or FAKE world(Monopoly).

  2. I remember n missed the gatherings with my cousins n we b playing board games, especially Monopoly for hrs. Was so different from kids these days on their PCs n tablets

  3. Liked your fanpage from my page! Anyhoos, my unforgettable monopoly moments are many. From stealing my brother’s ‘money’ when he wasn’t looking, to stealing his property!!! Haha

  4. Who doesn’t play Monopoly? I have the board game, play it on my iPhone and also on my iPad. Haven’t got the Singapore version yet. Hope to get it from you fellow SKians! 😛
