When we were snowed in at the Kruckenbergs lake house we played a game called “Town.”
This is how it worked:
Everyone made a shop where they could sell things and everyone had popsicle sticks for money. People could rate the shops with stars, just like they do in the real world.
This is my shop. People could come and pay to rent Legos to take and build at home. They could also come to my shop and pay to build legos at the shop. This is Hazel’s shop. At Hazel’s shop she would do hair styles for Emmeline and her dolls and she made wallets, notebooks and signs for shops. Emmeline’s store was a grocery store where people could buy pretend food. Peter’s shop was a toy car shop where you could rent toy cars to bring back to your shop to play with. You could also rent a car to play with at his shop. He had a race track there that you could drive the cars on.
You could also buy each other’s shops and then you would own it. Emmeline bought the top bunk of Hazel’s shop and Peter bought Emmeline’s shop. It was very expensive to switch your shop around.
It was a really fun game.
