Ordered online from Smyth’s Toys to an address in Galway…
All the wheeling and dealing of the original game remains, but any form of currency is about as useless as Monopoly money in this wretched environment. So you now negotiate with firearms, ammunition, first aid kits, whatever resources you can muster to survive. The dog, the shoe, the top hat. All gone. Sadly destroyed in the early days of the outbreak. These standard Monopoly pieces have been given a unique twist to fit the world of Robert Kirkman’s gory graphic novel. With a katana, a bucketful of human giblets and ‘Lucille’ (a baseball bat exquisitely wrapped in barbed wire) all making an appearance.

An anti market capitalisation art/game project by Big Hope, what sez:
The name Commonopoly is paraphrased from Monopoly, understood both as the economic term and the name of the well-known board game. Unlike Monopoly, the goal of Commonopoly is not the exhaustion, through monopolization, of a virtual stock of goods, but rather the expansion and preservation of a self-propelling sustainable system of recycling, production and distribution. The word ‘common’ employed in the name originates from the notion of ‘the commons’, that is, the resources such as air, water, public space etc. that by their nature contradict attempts at private ownership. Commonopoly is a model of a system where resources are held in common, avoiding their depletion.
Exchange, collaboration, mutual trust.
The long Winter evenings will just fly by.
