There are a truly horrific number of different versions of Monopoly. Yet there seems to be one missing.

So what happens if you combine the World's Best-Selling Boardgame and the World's Greatest Boardgame Website? BoardGameGeekOpoly!

Instead of properties you have games, grouped by type, going from simplest (say Snakes and Ladders) to most complicated (ASL maybe).

The railway stations would be railway games.

Go would be ... GO!

You could even use real, physical Geek Gold.

Surely everyone would want a copy. No?

Go would still be Go.
Jail would still be jail.
Free Parking would still be Free Parking.
'Go to Jail' would still be a better experience that playing a game of Monotony, er, Monopoly.

I would be interested in seeing one, after all there's a The BoardGameGeek Game so why not?

Also a Trivial Pursuit, Yahtzee and a standard card deck with the BGG logo on the back.

Jail should be the game Monopoly itself.

Looking at these stars suddenly dwarfed my own troubles and all the gravities of terrestrial life. I thought of their unfathomable distance, and the slow inevitable drift of their movements out of the unknown past into the unknown future. H.G. Wells

How about when a player lands on a space all players must play the depicted boardgame. The winner then gets the option to purchase that property. That might be fun to play over a few months.

It's fun, it's healthy, it's good exercise. The kids will just love it. And we put a little sand inside to make the experience more pleasant.

You know, they say there was a man who jumped from the forty-FIFTH floor? But that's another story...

You might want to take a look at these three games:

BGG: The Board Game
The BGG Admin Game: The Octavian Edition
The BoardGameGeek Game

You mean there's a game worse than LCR? (which would be Mediterranean Avenue)

I don't think that would go too well with my narrowly-focused gaming groups.

Look - we landed on the Twilight Struggle space! Let's find three copies of the game so all six of us party gamers can play!
