Game Night Hostess Serving Tray.
 I used ALL the pieces including the original box top, bottom, and inside cardboard. Saturday's are game night at my house. I thought this would be a novel way to serve snacks and drinks to guests. When the evening is over, everything is tucked away in it's own box for next time.
 I intend to use this set on Saturday! This could be the beginning of a New, family tradition. Who would have thought that an old game could become so useful the second time around!
The box top, (cover/additional tray), is covered with original game rules and "Interesting Facts' sheet found in the old editions of this game. The board was cut to form the tray. The bowls are paper mache covered with "money". The coasters are made from the 8 leftover property cards and rolled "money." I also used rolled "money" to finish the top and bottom edge's of the serving tray.

I'd really like to see these pictures when you get them up.  What a great idea!
