We all love playing monopoly. The rush of acquiring property. The dread of going to jail. The thrill of getting those exclusive utilities.
But what if you’re ‘monopolied’ out and want a little more fun with a bit of education? What if you could pair that adrenaline with Black Excellence, history, and a few twists?
Then you’d have Harlem-Opoly, the Harlem Renaissance Board Game from Harlem Roots.
What you can expect with Harlem-Opoly
Board games are a great way for people to connect with each other, learn, and have fun. So, we took all of that into consideration when we designed Harlem-Opoly.
Imagine a game set in the melting pot of Harlem, that takes you along the scenic route as you collect stipends, gather your landmarks, and become the expert Harlem expert?
Harlem-Opoly is that unique board game that takes you through the beauty and history of the Harlem Renaissance period. It’s a fun, interactive activity that makes it the perfect game for a variety of reasons like:
- Family games night
- Friends’ night in
- After-school programs
What’s different with the Harlem-Opoly Monopoly Board Game?
Unlike most neighborhood-based monopoly board games, Harlem-Opoly takes a different approach to highlighting the beauty and history of a neighborhood.
We take a moment in time where the impact and effects have endured for decades (and will continue to do so). So, you’ll be:
- learning about the major incidents with the Events squares
- collecting community and chance cards from the Tree of Hope and Carl Van Vechten
- learning about famous personalities that shaped Harlem
- visiting exclusive landscapes, many of which are still there today
Plus, we’ve also put together a massive resource to ensure you (or your kids) can have as much fun as possible by knowing the full history of Harlem. All you have to do is head over to Harlem Roots where we teach everything about the people, places, and things that made the Harlem Renaissance an epic journey in history.
Ready for a fun board game with a lot of history?
Because yes, we do provide the rules of the game. But if you want to get flexible and make up your own rules? We won’t stop you.
We’re just happy that you’ll be enjoying the game and learning more about Harlem in the process. And maybe, you could learn and love it as much as we do!
So, game on. Order your Harlem-Opoly Harlem Renaissance Board Game and get ready for many days and nights of pure fun.
