Wow Keith!

This is way cool stuff! Get a license from Issaries and ... whoever owns Monopoly these days? How expensive could it be? :)

Why not just use the jail as Go to Jail?

Now THAT'S funny!

Glamour could be cool, though my understanding is Greg was never very warm on the Reaching Moon version of the city. Boldhome would probably be boring.

What I think would work ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS, however, would be a Holy Country variant. Each color from normal monopoly becomes one of the various cultures/factors. Esrolia would account for 3 or 4, Heortland for 2 (one for the Orlanthi part, one for the Malkioni part), God Forgot another, etc. City of Wonders becomes the "Just Visiting", some of the major geographic or magical features could be the four stations, etc. I have a copy of Italian Monopoli, I might pull it out and try some correspondences (since I don't actually own an American version).
