I was super excited when BzzAgent emailed me about checking out the new Monopoly version called “My Monopoly” – which allows you to personalize your own Monopoly game using your own photos and your printer! Monopoly is my absolutely most favorite board game. When I was younger I had a computer version and you could make your own game boards, so I of course made my board Boyband Monopoly! Well, I am happy to report that is the theme that I am going with with this board as well. But in addition to customizing the spots on the board, you can also customize all the cards as well! That being said – this is going to be a HUGE undertaking so I do not have my game finished yet to show you how it came out. (But have no fear – once it is done I will definitely post about it!)
The best part about this game is – that if you are in the middle of customizing it or can’t decide on a theme you can still play because out of the box it is a fully functional regular monopoly game! You can create graduation and wedding gifts that highlight personal milestones and memories, celebrate special events and vacations, or craft family keepsakes that include funny photos of your loved ones and friends.
There is a mobile app as well as the website MyMonopoly.com that helps you customize the game. Just click it, stick it, and play it. Register your game and then access your Shutterfly, Flickr, Picasa, Facebook or Instagram accounts to gather and organize all your photos (this is the most time consuming part!). If you don’t use these sites, you can grab photos straight from your computer as well. Print your photos on the special sticker sheets that come with the game. There are 30 tiles on the board and 120 stickers so you can print extras to use for Chance and Community Chest cards as well!
The game tiles fit in to wherever you want on the game board, so each time you can play you can reorganize the tiles and place them anywhere you want on the game board! You can also add a tile to the game pieces so that you can be yourself (literally) in the game!
I received a free MyMonopoly game from BzzAgent in order to write this review. I was not otherwise compensated.
