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.
