'My Monopoly' Lets You Name Your Own Properties on a Custom Board

By Andrew Liszewski on at

Bond Street, Mayfair, and even Old Kent Road are all iconic properties on the world's most popular board game. But what if you wanted to play a game of Monopoly with locales you were actually familiar with? A simple Sharpie is one solution, but so is Hasbro's My Monopoly game. It lets you create a custom board online—with graphics and properties of your choosing—that's then delivered right to your door.

At £79.99 you're going to pay dearly for the privilege of a custom-printed Monopoly game that doesn't look like you made it yourself. But when you think of the awesome potential here—like buying hotels on Crap Place, or taking a ride on the Flatulent Railroad—it's clearly worth every last penny.

Now if only you could make your own Scrabble game, too. Imagine the points you'd rack up when every single square was a Triple Word Score. [My Monopoly via Firebox]
