Fantasy Kingpin - Opoly (by Keith Teasdale)
This is a small project of mine that all started just by chance. On a trip up to Borders, I had seen all of the calendars they had were on sale. So I took a gander and noticed a monopoly calendar. Each month was a small game board with the properties being the days of the month. There was one board that was blank with spaces underneath to create your own board. I thought it was neat and figured I would pick it up, just in case I wanted to do anything with it. Well one thing led to another and I noticed that the game board had a total of 26 properties to which you can name, not including the Utilities. And come to discover, the fantasy football league which I have been a part of for 10 years, has had 26 different owners that have spent at least one full season in the league. So as the wheels kept turning I had a thought that with me working at a printing place where we do a great deal of plastics, I wondered if I could perhaps be able to print something. And with the discovery of a blank monopoly board and title deed templates, along with the ability to print custom cards at work, things are just about set to get it done. As far as the money goes, yes I could potentially be able to do that, but it would require a lot more time, setup and cost. Quite frankly it is more sensible to just use a set of the regular monopoly money or as I do now which is keeping track on a piece of paper. That takes away the tiresome handling of money and the space it takes up. Pieces is the same. Use ones from whatever monopoly games you own, or whatever small pieces you happen to have of anything. Especially something that goes with your game.
