Does anyone have any thoughts on where to draw the line between shareware and freeware?

I'm certainly not going to be depending on my rather amateur software-writing skills (I'm just a college student) to pay the rent, but I certainly wouldn't mind the extra cash.

I'm currently writing a simple piece of software so that you can play Monopoly in Mac OS X. It has a nice Cocoa interface and has all the basic features of the game (or will very soon) but there aren't many fancy graphics and the game is fundamentally simple. Should I try making this a shareware app or just give it away?

Is it a good idea to make two different versions of software -- one free and one shareware -- with a somewhat different feature set?

Any thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated.
