Romanian Monopoly 

Saturday, May 21, 2005

Just like the standard version of Monopoly uses the names of streets in one city (Atlantic City), the Romanian version of Monopoly features place names from the capital București (or Bucharest in English).

Unlike the standard version, the real estate corresponding to Park Place and Boardwalk - Bulevardul Magheru and Bulevardul Primăverii respectively - have their values inverted.

Though Bulevardul Primăverii/Boardwalk is the more expensive property ($400 to buy versus Bulevardul Magheru's $350 price tag), it brings in only $35 in rent for the property alone and only $1500 once it has a hotel.

Bulevardul Magheru/Park Place is the real winner. Rental of the land costs the opponent $50 or $2000 once it has a hotel.

One of the Șansa (or Chance in English) cards carries these directions:

Translation: This card can be kept until you need it or it can be sold.

Did I mention that I am available for editing and am willing to relocate to Europe?

(Final scores, by the way: Roommate $8446 and 28 houses, Maktaaq $2699 and 7 hotels.)
