I hope that whilst you are reading this that you have good memories of playing monopoly, if not I suggest you go for a round. There are vast lessons we can learn from this game. Just like in reality you will notice how as the game goes on- some people lose all their cash fast, others gain cash fast, others lose and then gain, others gain and then lose. Very few players maintain a happy medium throughout the game and until that moment when a disgruntled player turns the board over!

  • have a strategy in mind, even if you loosely alter it
  • focus on your cash-flow- you never know when you’ll land on someone’s hotel or pick a dud card
  • a low cost property in a good position can yield great results
  • the return on investment can grow well if you invest into your asset correctly (for example hotels in Monopoly bring in the $)
  • be patient and consistent
  • its good to have diverse investments
  • keep emotion out of the game
  • people may cheat- keep your eyes open
  • people don’t like playing with cheaters
  • don’t go to jail
