|There's a lion? What happened to those shitty drip things?|
The game itself was unveiled at a special... wait, hold on a minute - didn't I already see an Olympic Monopoly set?
Yeah, I frigging thought so. So what's going on here? Ah, it turns out that one is the official boardgame of the London Olympics, whereas today's is the official boardgame of Team GB at the London Olympics. One wonders just how many official boardgames there are going to be.
It turns out that shabby lion is the mascot of Team GB. I've found the Team GB name a bit weird as it includes athletes from Northern Ireland. Great Britain is only Scotland, England and Wales. So shouldn't the team be called Team UK? I'm surprised there haven't been complaints about that.
Oh yeah and the lion is called Pride. Good grief.
|Not nearly enough money to play - ha ha ha, satire|
How many versions of Monopoly are there now? It's just getting ridiculous. I wonder just how many other Monopoly games there are going to be tied to the London 2012 Olympics. Are they going to make one for every team?
|Jesus Christ. Did they spend more than five minutes designing this?|
|Sadly there's no mention of drugs|
The sheer density of trademark and copyright logos is quite unbelievable too. Just about every word on the board has a little logo beside it. I wonder if there's a record and if this has broken it?
|We're going to jail for queue-jumping? Did they forget to redesign the cards from the Beijing version?|
