You can get custom monopoly board's made for your hometown, all you have to do is purchase I think it is a hundred games. Years ago my hometown did it and sold them to residents. You give a list of street names and they make up the game boards. It is a little cool for family game night.
Are you saying a SkiTalk Monopoly?

No, we will not be doing this but it is fun playing with ideas.

so who gets to be Park Place or Boardwalk ? choices for Baltic Ave. are endless.
With all the anti mega pass sentiments expressed at least one of them should be a lock for Water Works

SkiTalkopoly? SkiTopoly?



I think they should be "Notorious P.U.G." and "The Velvet Hammer" ... I just wanted to be a railroad :P
Replace...
  • the scotty with a pug
  • the thimble with a hammer
  • the iron with a waxing iron
  • the tophat with a helmet
  • the racecar with a SUV (with ski box)
  • the wheelbarrow with a patrol sled
  • The shoe with a skiboot

I think we just went down a rabbit hole.

Instead of street names use ski resort names.
Roll a 5, land on my Jackson with a stack of condos, it'll cost you, though you missed landing on Aspen which really would have cost you.

Do not pass Go; pass on zee left or on zee right, not down zee middle.

I don't know if the game company is still doing it but it is a fun thing to talk about. You could focus on a ski resort and make the different run names the street names. Or you could make a Colorado game with different resorts being the street names. You could do a ski version with different manufacturers and ski models for the street names. So many choices.

I have played the Vail version. Condo I stayed at there had it.


Plays pretty much the same as the normal version.

Instead of going to jail you can send them to summer. The utility companies could be the lift names.
Insteal of jail, they have to go work rentals on a Holiday weekend.

Utilities could be the 4 binding brands, Salomon, Tyrolia, Look and Marker.

Yes, the rental shop on a holiday weekend has to be jail.
I having trouble with the Railroads could they be tram names or parking lot shuttles?

Sell the locations to advertisers:
Railroads-Multi Pass orgs IKON EPIC .............
Utilities- Ski shops
Streets- ski areas, ski makers, boot makers and such.

Somebody should make some money off this boondoggle!

They missed some obvious opportunities... For instance, "Go To Jail" should have been replaced with "Pass Pulled".

Yes it was basically an ad board for the local businesses. It was about Vail the "town" more so than the ski resort.
