A New Game: “The Monopoly Tennis Game”

A New Game: “The Monopoly Tennis Game”

The Idea: Exactly like the board game in real life. The game board will the same except maybe a little changes here and there.

The Game: Ordinarily the game should last from the beginning of the season through to the end. I will be the one picking up cards such as “Community Chest” so I won’t be playing the game. I will be the Bank.

The Players: A player may join at any time during a season, only that they will start from scratch at the beginning. Although I may put a cap on the number of players playing since the board could get too crowded. Players will take on a tennis player (ATP or WTA) and stick with them for a season. Instead of rolling dices, the players’ performance will be your die.

For example, if you are Serena Williams and she wins a tournament winning 4 matches along the way, you will move up 4 places. If your player does not play during a week, I will roll the dice and tell you how much you can move. This way, EVERYONE gets to move every week.

How to win: There are two ways of winning, either to win by been the last man standing or for the season to finish and be the one with the most money. N.B: If a player wins early in a season, a new season (game) may start.

Extras: To make the game interesting, you can form alliances and sell properties to each other. You can also work together to eliminate someone from the game. There may be other extras.

How to get started: Two steps:

1. Pick an active ATP or WTA player (first come first serve for now, so you must be quick).

2. Make a suggestion (optional)

A word of warning: Like in the real game, don't pick someone cause they win a lot cause by advancing 4 or 5 all the time may not necessarily be good for you, it all depends on where you are. Plus I may change this rule to say a players' games won in a tournament in a week or something. Also, I have posted this on ATPWORLD and WTAWORLD so somebody else maybe earlier than you on the "other" board.

Ask questions please, I'm still figuring out how everything will work, this is just a raw idea
