Couchtycoon is a Friends n Family Ventures Network for trading, starting up and managing ventures. Doing real business as easy as playing Monopoly. The "friends and family" put ideas into action.

The website follows the concept of a monopoly board. While doing business @ CouchTycoon users move on the virtual gameboard.

Please design action-field-symbols for the CouchTycoon gamboard.

The four action fields:

- Bank (user accesses his CouchAccount with functionality like money exchange)

- Jail (if a user goes to Jail he is excluded from trading for a couple of days)

- Start (the game token representing the user is placed on the start field when the user is entereing the homepage)

- Exchange (shares are traded here)

- Help (by clicking the help field the user accesses the help features)

Please check for a scribble of the gameboard.
