TPiB: Hunger Games Monopolgy (from Kearsten)
Do you have teens that are crazy for The Hunger Games and Monopoly? Why not put together this HG Monopoly game as a Teen program in a Box?
- Inflatable Dice
- Property Cards (printed on cardstock)
- Monopoly money (borrowed from another Monopoly game, or, if you print your own: 20 each of $500 and $100, 30 $50, 50 $20, and 40 each of $10, $5, and $1)
- 32 houses, 12 hotels
- 5 math challenge cards, 5 science challenge cards, 5 trivia challenge cards (cardstock)
- Gift bags with parachute images taped to them (these can be reused, as long as you have people to refill them inconspicuously. We had 18 ready to go and gave out our last one in the last round)
- Reaping bowl/container
I do recommend reading through the Monopoly rules ahead of time. I was lucky in that I had a teen volunteer who is more than a little obsessed with the game (she can rattle off rents, with or without houses and hotels, for most properties from memory), and so I was able to consult her when there was a question from the players.
Kearsten and Co. obviously put a lot of work into putting together this epic live action Hunger Games Monopoly game and they have been kind enough to share all of that hard work with us here. You can get everything you need by following the links.

I’m a Teen Librarian at Glendale Public Library in Glendale, Arizona. I’ve spent half my life working in libraries, but the last six I’ve spent in the teen department have been the most fun by far: book clubs, zombie LARPs, and gaming, oh my! I run two monthly book clubs and a third every summer, and talking with others about the books we’ve read makes my day. Wandering our teen room, pulling books off the shelves, is my favorite way to recommend teen fiction and non-fiction, and here on TLT I’m hoping to translate that informal book-talking into something anyone can use. Kearsten does our monthly “Booktalk This!” feature.
