Those were my favourite three to play as.
I feel lost. How can I ever enjoy monopoly again?

Or the real world. Only the rich and wealthy are allowed to become ever more rich and wealthy.

A candlestick, a rope, a dagger, a lead pipe, a revolver, a trophy and a wrench.

All potential murder weapons, I see. A possible tie-in with Cluedo.

But they still have cash, right??? You can buy a thimble with cash. You can buy a used boot with cash. You can rent a wheelbarrow with cash!

ATS, General Consp., 2008: NWO edition of Parker Bros 'Monopoly' goes cashless & now buys and sells countries.

And they're thinking about rebooting The Matrix too! What do I expect after that family of Bears got a new name...

 


My token I would like to see, a shotglass!

In that case, what about a trigger too? No gun, that is BAD!!! Just a trigger.

I am surprised they do not sell token expansion packs, based upon themes. They wouldn't need to release an entire game, just the token expansion packs with sticker overlays for a board. Charge premium $$$ with even less production costs.

Airplane Theme
Modern: B-2, F-22, A-10, B-52, & F-117
Historic: P-38, P-51, Spitfire, Zero, & Sopwith Camel

Food Themes
Mexican Food: Burrito, Taco, Nachos, Fajita, & Margarita
Italian Food: Rotini Pasta, Canoli, Pizza, Ziti Pasta, & Gelato

Sooooo many possibilities....more ideas anyone?

I wonder if those 3 pieces were offensive to a group of people.

D&D comes to mind!

And you can do a side business of selling paint and brushes! Little dwarf with a battle axe.

Oh, of course a 12-sided die! Two pastimes in one!

What business does a cat have on a Monopoly board?

Disclosure: I do not like cats.

I think,except in certain families where it's a tradition,board games are in general on their way out.


I don't think so.

They seem to be experiencing a surge in popularity, but not the old classics as much as the new breed. Pandemic was very popular.

Board games and card games are trendy at the moment and way for people to unplug which is also a trendy thing.

Maybe Monopoly is another victim of 4-chan trolls.



One of my favorites was making sure a Deaf school won a Taylor Swift concert.

Million dollar idea!

Let's start selling 3D printed, custom made, Monopoly tokens!

Just saying... you can have any token you want!

Themes. Like Halloween (tombstones, skulls, bats, etc), Christmas, Easter, ebola (LOL)

Now I just made myself jealous! And probably lost a million dollars....
