Monopoly World Edition

By diamond

Well, looks like I'll have to give Latvia and Canada a second look in terms of real estate. Monopoly World Edition has just been released and the highest value real estate is Riga in Latvia followed by Montreal in Canada. Park Lane remains on the board representing London.

Oooh, I love Monopoly...ccan't wait to play this new edition.

I got a freebee CD with The Times and it's brought back memories of my youth. Mind you, I don't like losing to the Entrepreneur on the computer - it's not quite the same as playing with my schoolfriend every day in those heady days of the late 50s during the school summer holidays, over a glass of Tizer with a half-brick of ice-cream stuffed into it. :D

Sigh

Bugger! - now I'm going all maudlin and nostaligic again (where's those damn pills)

It was my boss who designed it =pp LOL

Stay safe =)

Perfection does not exist. The question therefore, is: what level of imperfection are we willing to settle for?

I would certainly vote for Montreal as best place to visit...maybe even live...but to invest in real estate?? erm...not so much LOL

Stay safe all.

Yes, if there was a Doha/Qatar Monopoly The Pearl would have to be on there.

I think people voted for their favourite places to visit and not necessarily real estate value. The top one, Riga, in Latvia, is really beautiful. It's a UNESCO World Heritage Site. But then again, I don't know that many people who've been to Latvia :/ Oh, I don't know.

Of course. A diamond in the rough and all that :D

Surely the fact that Diamond lives there would make it worthy of inclusion =pp

btw, the idea of a monopoly board isn't to have all the most expensive places on it. They get more expensive as you go round the board (or from the bottom up on that web page).

I've never been invited to your house ;)

It could be a squalid shack in the industrial area for all I know :p

I think the title on the web page says it all; YOU HAVE SPOKEN!

Let the general public decide something and you'll always get strange results.

Yes, RR, I must admit, Montreal isn't the first city that springs to mind for real estate investment lol. Although it is a great place to visit...I particularly enjoy it at autumn...one of my fave places is St. John's Oratory.

expanding the marketabilkity of the game..

I mean - Gdynia ???? Where did they come from ??

By tallg• 13 years 11 months ago.

Yes, we could have Ras Laffan, Dhukan, Messieed + one other.

Or sticking on a transport theme you could have The Airport, Mowasalot (sp?), Toyota's head quarters, and a Jet Ski shop.

So how about "Gas Works" ?

What would Doha/Qatar Monopoly have on it then?

There are 8 price bands, with 2 streets/locations in the cheapest and most expensive and 3 in the others. You also need 4 train stations (or similar) and two utilities.

Suggestions please...

Although i'm not sure how they arrived at those values Diamond....Montreal isn't even the most expensive city in Canada to live in...let alone on an internation scale lol....still a great city to visit (if you haven't already, I HIGHLY recommend it!).

Stay safe.
