Our combination physical activity/meta puzzle.

The physical activity is to play a game of Monopoly at Monopoly in the Park. Players must form the wheelbarrow token by having one person walk on their hands, with their ankles being held by a teammate. (True to form, the Unibangers made a valiant attempt at incorporating a unicycle, in order to give their wheelbarrow an actual wheel.) You start with $1500, and on each turn you roll the dice and then choose to either buy or pay rent on each property you hit.

Players must figure out that the real purpose of playing the game is to get you to acquire one of each denomination of bill. These bills are similar to the ones used in the pregame, except that the "seal" has been replaced by a "serial number"):

The "serial numbers" (which are the same for all bills of a given denomination) can be decoded using the simple 01=A, 02=B, etc. code:

  $1   S15182002Y    SORTBY
  $5   H09142016A    HINTPA
 $10   T20051814S    TTERNS
 $20   R05010414T    READNT
 $50   H12052020E    HLETTE
$100   R15061420H    ROFNTH
$500   A14192305R    ANSWER

SORT BY HINT PATTERNS READ NTH LETTER OF NTH ANSWER.

Remember the numbered decorative stripe that appears in a corner of each puzzle? Each stripe pattern also appears on one of the bills:

Put the puzzles in order by the corresponding denomination. For instance, Executive Tangrams is first because its stripe pattern appears on the $1 bill, and its answer is THATCHER. Once you have the answers in order, read diagonally:

 <font color="red">T</font>HATCHER    ($1, [[Executive Tangrams]])
  S<font color="red">U</font>BURBAN    ($5, [[Left_vs|Left vs. Right]])
  WH<font color="red">I</font>RLPOOL   ($10, [[Appliance Sale]])
  POT<font color="red">T</font>ER      ($20, [[helpdesk]])
  PREC<font color="red">I</font>PICE   ($50, [[Spiral]])
  <font color="red">TUITION</font>     ($100, <strong>Monopoly</strong>)
  VASELI<font color="red">N</font>E    ($500, [[Slick Willie]])

TUITION is the final answer!
