TBOX 2012 (The 17th) – TBOXOPOLY

AKA, “The Year that things maybe got a little out of hand, but it’s all good now…”

TBOX 2012, “TBOXOPOLY” – was billed as the world’s most exciting live-action board game. The crawl benefited Chicago Dance Marathon as well as the Lakeview School Street Playlot Project and the Lakeview Pantry Food Bank and Hunger Assistance Center – and with the growth of TBOX, we’re thrilled to announce that in 2012-2014 alone, we have donated over $130,000 to these local charities from TBOX proceeds!

I came up with the TBOXOPOLY theme sometime in the spring — and once it clicked in my mind, I realized it was just the kind of ultra-elaborate thing I live for… the bars could be properties… the stickers could be money… the costumes could be gamepieces and everything else… there would be LOTS of COMMUNITY CHESTS filled with cereal, and of course, FREE PARKING FOR ALL!  As word spread, the event shaped up to be the biggest ever, and you can check out our THOUSANDS of photos below to see some of the action!

So, with all this merriment, and people coming in from everywhere, we once again witnessed the crowds closing off several streets and taking over Wrigleyville… and that’s why you now see us having the barricades, and cleanup crews, and portable toilets, and extra extra security just like all the big festivals have.

I learned a lot in a short time about how much time I was going to have spend on the non-fun stuff in addition to the fun stuff, but that’s why we’ve still been able to bring you TBOX 2013, 2014, and 2015 and beyond!

The TBOXOPOLY Game Board issued to all participants is shown below. The event game board split our 43 participating venues into 4 color groups – Red, Green, Blue, and Yellow, to move our crowd around, and the goal was to collect game piece stickers from at least three bars in each group! Winners received a free ticket to BeadQuest and a gift certificate from one of our participating venues.  And the middle of the board featured the 69 Members of the TBOX2012 Royal Court!
