Summary of Game

Our game is Monopoly journalism style. It is called the Journalism Journey. In the game, the goal of the players is to gain as many cities as they can to be readers of their newspaper. Every player picks what newspaper they will be playing as and uses the dice to move up, however, many spaces. Each space on the board either has a city or chance slot. If you land in a city you may use your money from investors to purchase the readers from that state and the player who has the newspaper with the most following is the winner. This game has a twist because the chance cards can either be really helpful or really hurtful to your paper and just one chance card can change the status of every player in the game. This game also includes the classic Monopoly rule where when the player passes Go they collect 200 dollars, but in this game, the only way to receive the money is to correctly answer a trivia question about yellow journalism.
