Monopoly Web Lovers Edition: Go Directly to Real World

by Lambert Varias

We’ve seen a few fan made videogamethemed takes on Monopoly. Now here’s a design for regulars of the World Wide Web. Instead of streets and utilities, you settle on websites and software. Instead of free parking, you get free Wi-Fi. Instead of going to jail, you go to the real world.

The tokens are also Web-related, such as the Facebook silhouette and the Google Maps pin. I’m not sure what the star token is referring to though. Should’ve gone with the Reddit alien.

Speaking of Reddit, the sharing site and other popular sites are inexplicably missing on the board. I also think Facebook and Google would’ve been better stand-ins for the game-ending Boardwalk and Park Place properties instead of Yahoo! and Flickr. Then again, this is just a concept. But surely the Internet has more fans than Star Trek, so I don’t see why Hasbro wouldn’t consider releasing an actual Web Edition.

    The star token probably refers to the “favourites” icon used in web-browsers.

    They already tried this. It was called Monopoly .COM Edition. It’s kind of fun, in fact there was an additional optional rule which shut down your websites (which acted at properties) occasionally meaning that you couldn’t collect rent on them.

    I’ve got a copy in my closet.
