I think we need a US-UK UK-US monopoly translation for those properties /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_razz.gif

Hey, I wonder if we could get somebody to actually make that? They've got Disney Monopoly and X-Men Monopoly and Canada Monopoly... why not Moon Monopoly?

The other pink one = Mare Frigoris

Well, I'm pretty sure I know which that one is. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif But I'm afraid all I could provide would be the Canadian version.

Just thought of something, Glom...

Instead of calling it Lunar Monopoly, howabout Moonopoly? /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_razz.gif

Rift, your point is well taken.

Irony, just to add to your list, I have Star Trek: The Next Generation monopoly and I Love Lucy monopoly. Also, on the wartime sitcom Allo, Allo, set in occupied France, Gestapo agent Herr Flick and his girlfriend, Helga, were playing Nazi monopoly. He was the Gestapo Staff Car, while she was the high-heeled jack boot. Flick picked up a card saying, "Go directly to Hitler's bunker, do not pass go, do not collect 200 marks."

What would we use as houses and hotels? Clavius moon base as a hotel? Lunar Excursion Modules as houses?

2003-Mar-14, 07:37 PM
Oh yeah. I forgot about those.

MOLAB for houses. Skylab surface base for hotels.

Oh, and you left out my favorite, albeit hard to see, lunar feature; Mare Orientale
