Hi

The UK version of Monopoly is taking votes for what cities and towns should be included in the next version. You can vote here: http://www.monopoly.co.uk/vote.aspx. It might be kind of fun to vote for geek-friendly spots. Sadly you can't give the street address of your favourite FLGS, but Geek votes could boost places like York, Halesowen, Peterborough, Stoke on Trent etc. Stoke is currently the only one of those on the list.

That's weird. This bit used to mention Shire Games, and tell you all how wonderful we are. But it seems to have got deleted. Let's see what happens this time ....

You seem to have mis-pronounced 'commiserations'.

Halesowen is of course a space on the first Birmingham edition in the Orange group.

Is 221B Baker Street a choice?


Sadly not, its just cities/towns rather than actual street addresses.

I'm from Coventry! I could be offended cry. It's not so bad - we have Bishop Games, we could use a gaming group though.

132 votes for Wolverhampton. Who in the name of hades would want this dire-hole of a city in a board-game (unless it's "Chav-opoly")?
