I was at the Barnes & Noble in Orland Park yesterday when I ran across the cub edition of Monopoly and I was wondering if anyone knew of a Sox version? I've googled it and there's only a Sawx version so far....

On that Cubs edition gameboard, was Moises Alou the picture on Water Works?

The Cubs actually have two editions. Simulated Monopoly rocks as well. Kerry "Natalie" Wood is the picture on Boardwalk on that one.

Why would there be a SOX version of monopoly when everyone knows this is a Cubs town. Look at the media coverage they get for proof

A Cubs version would have to come without the "Free Parking" space, wouldn't it...?

Is the jail space on the board of the Cubs version a photo of U.S. Cellular Field?

It's probably last place, since the Cubs are usually trapped there.

Instead of train stations they should have ticket broker offices

One of the Community Chest cards reads "Congratulations! You have been selected to purchase Cubs tickets at FACE VALUE, saving the 300% markup normally charged by our Premium Services outlet."

Here are two more Community Chest cards:


"You've parked your car at the McDonald's across Wrigley Field. Pay $50"

"A concrete block from the upper deck has struck you on the head, collect $100"

"You win second prize in a beauty pageant. Collect $10."

I know this has nothing to do with the Cubs, but it was always my favorite Community Chest card. :redneck

If the game was developed by the Tribune Company, then the answer is Yes.

Some more suggestions for the Cubbie version of the game:

- one of the community chest cards says: "You have been selected as the talentless 2nd-rate celebrity to sing Take Me Out to the Ball Game - collect $10"

- one of the game pieces can be a urinal trough

and last but not least (drum roll....)

- A chance card says "You Interfere With Foul Ball At Playoff Game, Team Chokes, and You Become Latest Cub Scapegoat, Go Directly to Jail, Do Not Collect $200.

You wager the Cubs will finish season with more wins than the White Sox. Lose $100. :D:
