monopoly contest and giveaway

if there is one game that bill loves, it is monopoly.  he is beginning to pass on that love to zoe.  she loves counting her money, organizing it and carefully choosing what to purchase and what to pass by.  one day she asked us, wouldn't it be great if this were real money?

well, the makers of monopoly (hasbro) must have heard her question because, in honor of monopoly's 75th anniversary, they are now offering a contest in which the winner will get exactly that:  the amount of money in the monopoly bank ($20,580).

all you have to do is go to and leave an answer to the question: what would you do if the money in your monopoly game were turned into real money?  (you can also check them out on facebook).

go leave your answer by september 2nd.  from september 3 to september 27, you can rally people to vote for your entry.

as if that weren't amazing enough, monopoly will be giving away a bonus game bank ($20,580) to s.o.s. children’s villages, a charity organization that builds houses for abandoned and at risk children so that they can grow up in a loving home. for 75 hours september 29 at 10:59 p.m. edt), the public can vote for the project they want to see funded. 

if all this talk about monopoly is whetting your own whistle for the game, you can leave a comment here and be entered to win your own edition of the game (pictured above).  just tell me what you would do if you won the bank and i will choose a winner at random on september 2.

i have not received an compensation for letting you know about this contest or holding this giveaway.  i just like hasbro and wanted to support them and let you win a fun game.


  1. 1/2 I would put into microfinancing and the other 1/2 I'd pay to have some wells built for clean drinking water in places that they were needed most.

  2. Well, since we've all but literally sold an arm and a leg to pay for our adoption, I would share most of it with someone else trying to adopt. Then, I would use some to replace some (not-so-lovely) floors and light fixtures in my house.

  3. I would use it for my parents bills and perhaps pay off some of my student loans and save some.
