Many localized Monopolies have advertising for local businesses.

Reading the article it seems the business owner was objecting to the cost.

No one? Just a light hearted post in a boardgame forum folks.

I liked the post, it was a good update for something I hadn't seen for a while, but given the thread title I thought there was a complaint about the advertising approach, which I thought was fine. If not, no biggy!

that's how all those city-based monopoly boards end up with Frank's Dental Emporium and Bill's Crab Shack spaces.

Oh teh twitter, I saw a different link to the same story that used his proper name James "The Hound Dog" Young. I used to listen to him of 3RRR and always think of him as that.

Think it was my one? The article I linked to didn't https://t.co/K3sWy11Yl5
Not sure if he goes by Hound Dog anymore... certainly didn't when he was on the circle. Off Topic: My Fast Fiction's Last Ever Shirt is almost completely faded.... I'm very sad.

It's interesting that The Age's video thought frapacinnos were something that Fitzroy hipsters would order, while the Herald Sun (http://www.heraldsun.com.au/leader/news/melbourne-monopoly-w...) thought that they would only do so ironically.... if they could find one.

That's weird, did I subconsciously include it? Did they edit it? His 3RRR days were a long time ago, although he does drop back in during Radiothons...

I don't think I have seen a frapacinno in a place I would have coffee, so I am not sure what that makes me meeple
