    I suppose a Microsoft version of the board game would have been too obvious. [​IMG] I could see myself purchasing this, if for no other reason than the novelty factor (and as a longtime gamer).

    You know, they really need to adjust those figures for inflation. I mean, who really cares if you pass go and get $200? Thanks for getting me through a couple of days. [​IMG]

    Ooh, Boardwalk + Hotel, $500. Bill it to my card so I get rewards points.

    I think if they just multiply everything by a 25 (so passing GO = $5000) it will become relevant again. [​IMG]

    Boardwalk + hotel is $2000, Boardwalk with no improvements and without Park Place is $400, and you get to double that if you have no improvements but also have Park Place.

    And I'd still feel ripped off I paid $400 for a hotel room, ouch, that's a huge chunk of change, even for my parents.

    Well, I was going to say the graphics looked pretty cool, then I realized I was looking at pictures of an actual board game! Why would anyone want that? Nintendo DID start out as a playing-card company though.

    There was a video Monopoly game on the original Sega Master System.

    > I suppose a Microsoft version of the board game would have been too obvious

    There have been PC versions of Monopoly.

    Some of you may be missing the point. By computerizing a game like that, people who are alone can still play it.

    I believe it is you that has missed the point. By a rather wide margin.
