In a game of Monopoly, in terms of game board orientation, should the Go! space be in the bottom left or bottom right?

My wife and I do not agree. I went to google images, certain in my correctness and found both to be a common orientation. Damn!

Of course, the proper answer is neither, the Go! space belongs folded up in its box, unplayed. But hey, that answer isn't going to help me with this fundamental question.

Well, I've always played it on boards with circular tracks where neither of those terms would apply.

Edit: I can make English no, yes?

Both. Bottom right for the player facing north and bottom left for the player facing west.

When asking "What would Jesus do?", remember that flipping over tables and using a whip are within the realm of possibilities.

Neither. The Go! should be on the top right, because you want to sit nearest to the orange spaces. Like this:



The orange spaces are the best investment, and you want them to be right in front of you, so you can best protect your investment when you get them (or, if someone else acquires the orange set, you are in the best seat to steal the houses off them).

Bottom right. Always. Don't be Weirdos.

Look at boards that have the "Monopoly" in the center of the board facing a side instead of angled to face "Go!". It's always facing the cheap side, so you'd want "Go!" in the lower right to make it easy to read.

Suddenly a shot rang out! A door slammed. The maid screamed. Suddenly a pirate ship appeared on the horizon! While millions of people were starving, the king lived in luxury. Meanwhile, on a small farm in Kansas, a boy was growing up.

Back in the day when I played Monopoly, Go was always in the top left. Never really thought about why, it just was.

My favorite 18xx game for six players is two games of 1846 with three players each.

Far away from us! (as was said in a different context in Fiddler on the Roof.)
