Game Design: Exploring Creativity with Children
I remember playing Monopoly with my dad.
He taught me many things about wheeling and dealing.
Whenever he purchased Boardwalk, he would ceremoniously place the card into his shirt pocket, symbolically telling me that I would NEVER get it. Mostly, I remember that he would nearly always win.
Yet, my fondest memories are of his creation of a game called Card Monopoly.
He made it with a deck of cards and two record album covers slit open and taped together. The rules were simple, requiring only a second deck of cards, two dice and a couple of tokens. We played quite a few games of Card Monopoly.
I remember thinking that my dad was a genius to be able to invent a game.
