Monopoly Millionaire #first2Amillion

Growing up, my absolute favourite board game to play was always Monopoly.  My brothers, cousins, friends and I would have games that went on for days during Summer vacation.  I remember even "pausing" the game by setting it aside if someone had to go home or if we had other things we needed to do. We made note of who had what properties and how much money each person had.  Then we'd resume the game once everyone was available again. This was some serious Monopoly playing. Hardcore Monopoly!

What I love is that it helped us with our math skills.  My cousin was always the banker because he was the math whiz.
Yes, Monopoly brings back lots of fond childhood memories.  This is why I'm so excited about Monopoly Millionaire!  The same great game, only the luxury version!  This one has diamonds, limos, movie premieres, and all the things you'd have if you lived the high life!

Want to hear something even more exciting?  There's going to be a Live like a Millionaire Twitter Party on October 9th, 2012 at 8:30PM EST!  Make sure to follow @ShesConnected and @SCConference and use the #first2Amillion hashtag. There will be prizes too! I for one am really looking forward to this! Come join in on all the fun!
