• Another excellent idea is to have beverages or maybe even something to snack on while top, because playing Monopoly can get interesting to say the least. Also, you have to consider all of the players moving to either get money or moving their tokens from one point of the board to the other point of the board, so you want to avoid any messes.
•A fun way to include your children and get them more interested in playing Monopoly would be to invite the neighborhood you might live in.
