Create your own Monopoly game
Have you ever played Monopoly? It’s a fantastic game that involves money and buying and selling property in London. Each played receives money at the start from the banker. This money can be spent on streets where you can buy houses. Careful where you go – if you land on another players property, you have to pay them money. Cards in the middle give you rewards such as Birthday money or you might lose money if you have to pay your taxes.
