Getting the Halos Heaven community to join in the fun of off-season creativity by creating the Chance and Community Chest cards for our custom Monopoly set.

This winter, to satisfy my annual off-season creative juices and keep things interesting for me and you, I am re-coding the classic game of Monopoly to be LA Angels-centric.

I have all the property cards and game board figured out. This includes what you know as "utilities" and "railroads". I am keeping the dollar values and card outcomes as they are since that maintains the integrity of true game play. When we are all done, you can use all this stuff to create your own custom game using one of the many online generators.

But here is where you all get involved. I have some time, so I am opening up the notion of tokens and Chance Cards and Community Chest Cards to everyone. For the cards, I ask that you identify the card that you are replacing, and that you retain the actual outcome (plus or minus dollar amount or where to relocate on the board).

There are 16 Chance Cards, 16 Community Chest Cards and 8 tokens in a standard game set. To get your creative juices flowing, here are the Card ideas I had worked up before DesignerGuy inspired this opportunity. You job is to do better. I will uplift good ideas from below on a regular basis and update the tables to show where we stand.
