Y'all may have noticed the strange surge in activity in recent days; reason is simple; my PC's hard drive crashed and I almost lost a gazillion files... including a boondongle of files for pagebuilding on this wiki.
Yes. Those are real numbers.
So... I managed to save the hard drive (now it's an external drive) and its files (I did say "almost") and have decided to institute a contingency plan to A) save all the stuff I've done so far, B) feed this beast known as the Monopoly Wiki, C) make things manageable for me (I've heard rumours of something called "a life outside the internet"... ), I'll be building new pages one at a time in small, bite-sized blocks; creating a page with what I've got at hand and later fill it out and clean it up as data …Read more >
Well, if you read the last blog, you know that Hasbro put it out to a public decision which token would be eliminated from the game and which one would replace it.
The cat won (yay for me!) and the iron is () out.
The iron has been around (off and on) since 1935 and I'm sure some people will miss seeing it in new boxes, but if you really, really need one, it's still fairly easy to find older boxed sets or loose tokens in swap meets and thrift shops. Sure, a lot of people are going to go kinda crazy trying to get an iron, so... supply and demand...
Me? I still have a few and I'm going to keep having them... even if nobody actually chooses it...

Lo and behold the news that greeted me this morning as I was logging on to check my mail:
- Rest in pieces: Hasbro to replace a classic Monopoly game token
- By Chris Morris | Plugged In
- In many families, Monopoly fights start long before the property is purchased. Inevitably, every player wants the same playing piece.
- Well, it's time to stand up for your beloved old boot or Scottie dog or thimble, because Hasbro is aiming to get rid of it.
- The company has announced plans to upgrade Monopoly, which will include replacing one of the game's iconic tokens with a fancy new figurine.
- Even worse, Hasbro is making you decide which one will go. From now through Feb. 5, fans can vote to save their favorite token -- and which new one will take the place of th…

Well, Christmas is over, which has given me a small respite to post a new page on the Sonic the Hedgehog Collector's Edition, which purely by coincidence was added by another user to the list just yesterday.
Unfortunately, this was just a small respite; there is still a ton of work to do these holidays... so hopefully I'll be posting more pages soon.
Happy Holidays! May the peace brought by the Prophet Jesus - peace be upon him - warm your heart and soul!

Y'all know how they say "Variety is the spice of life"? Well just in case y'all haven't noticed; Monopoly is spicy.
No, seriously: I don't mean "spicy" as in "adding a bit of spicy flavour": I mean a full-blown, five-alarm, ghost-pepper habanero marinade on a pot of hot coals that would have even Adam Richman running for his life while begging for mercy!
There are a TON of Monopoly game variants! More than a ton... a KILOTON of variants; seriously; over a THOUSAND... and counting!
And being a card-carrying masochist, I'm out to catalogue them all; I'm funny that way.
It may take some time, but it will be a fun exploration of the fantastic world of Monopoly. Heck, if I'm still sane I might blog here about some of the things I find along the way…Read more >
