i was in the bookstore looking around and they had 3 or 4 different versions of monopoly. they also have a clinique make-up counter there now, which i find bizarre.

anyway i did some research. you know how many different versions of monopoly have been made? over 55. here are a few of my favorites.

Betty Boop Monopoly: "This completely customized game comes with "Betty Bucks" and 6 collectible pewter tokens: Betty, Pudgy, Clapboard, Lipstick, Motorcycle and a Fleischer Studios Inkwell."

Garfield 25th Anniversary Monopoly : "Players vie to own Garfield’s most treasured creature comforts, including his bed, Pookie and Irma’s Diner. Includes a comic strip created by Jim Davis exclusively for the MONOPOLY game!"

National Geographic Mountaineering Monopoly : "Compete to own the greatest mountains in the world! Mt. Everest, Denali & El Capitan are up for grabs. This completely customized game features 6 custom tokens: climber, yak, canteen, hiking boot, rope, tent."

Surfing Monopoly: "Vie to rule and ride the most formidable surf spots in the world including Pipeline, Restaurants, Todos Santos and Maverick’s. Game features the photography of legendary surf photographer Jeff Divine."

Century of Flight / Aviation Monopoly: "Buy, sell and trade historic aircraft in a quest to “own it all”. 6 Collectible Pewter Tokens: Fighter Jet, Helicopter, Monoplane, Hot Air Balloon, Commercial Jet and Airship. Uses Hangers and Airports instead of Houses and Hotels."

i was going to add some joke here about Actual God-opoly, with Boardwalk being terri schiavo's vagina, or something, but it never really came together. maybe Yale-blogopoly:

Finnegan's Wake - Boardwalk
Hidden Hand - Pacific
Delino and Actual God - St. Charles and States
I am justice - Baltic
Papa Smurf - Luxury Tax
