NOT LEAVING HOME: IDEAS FOR FAMILY LEISURE IN WINTER
Organization of family leisure is not an easy task. It is important not only to come up with an activity that will appeal to all family members, but also to make it vivid, memorable, something that you want to repeat again and again.
In the summer it can be barbecue, hiking on the river, a joint bike ride. As an option – playing sports in the fresh air. But in winter, with family entertainment is more complicated. You can, of course, go to the cinema or to the theater, but in the end, such a vacation comes down to a “come-sit-go-leave” scheme, and it requires an additional budget each time.
The most winter option is board games. Firstly, you do not need to leave the house, just take the treasured box from the drawer and sit at the nearest table. Secondly, board games are communication. Here you can joke and discuss the latest news, even arrange at the same time eating pizza together. Thirdly, the budget – “tricks” are bought once, and you can play them at least every day.
Today, the most popular game in the world is Monopoly. It is played by more than a billion people in 114 countries. In total there are more than 300 versions of the game – both for the smallest players, and for real pros. The essence of the game is to make moves, conclude “deals” and, rationally using “start-up capital”, defeat other players and become a monopolist in the market. For the Monopoly games, 64 million house figures and 24 million hotel figures are produced annually. This is enough to build a tower three times higher than Everest! In the Ukrainian version of the famous game there are our cities and streets, as well as real estate objects – for example, large factories, port and others. So playing in such a monopoly will be much more interesting.
More recently, in January 2017, a real fever swept the world – Monopoly announced a worldwide vote for the chips that will remain in the classic version of the game. This historical event was called “Fish Madness.” Thanks to him, the game fans have a unique opportunity to independently determine all 8 chips that will be part of the new edition of “Monopoly”.
64 candidates are divided into the corresponding categories: “fashion”, “animals”, “inventions” and others. Along with such favorites of the players as “cylinder”, “wheelbarrow”, “boot”, new characters joined the candidates: “penguin”, “rubber duck” and “plush slippers”.
Voting takes place from January 10 to January 31, the results will be announced on March 19, on World Monopoly Day. You can vote for your favorite chip on the official website of Votemonopoly.com, which is translated into all the key languages of the world, including Ukrainian!

So play, vote, chat and take care of your loved ones – the time spent with loved ones is priceless!
