These things have probably been around, but I just got my Official Catalog of the National Hockey League in the mail today and figured I'd share.

They have TWO (count 'em) versions of NHL Monopoly:

The first is a regular edition, complete with spaces for all 30 teams, I guess, despite there being only 22 properties in the game, not counting railroads, Electric Company, and Water Works... up to 28... hmm. (A little keen eyework has shown me that expansion teams are sharing squares as railroads... well, some of them. Lightning/Senators are Short Line, Wild/Jackets are Reading.)

The regular tokens have been replaced by a puck, a zamboni, and an actual portion of Gordie Howe.

The Chance and Community Chest cards have been replaced by ones for the Eastern & Western conference. I'd say something "witty", but the card I'd most likely get would be Stop Watching For A Year And Be Totally Out Of Loop When Half The League's Players Are On Other Teams- Advance to Colorado Avalanche and relocate again. (Though the real cards would be much less "whatever" and would most likely be things like "Caught throwing octopus onto ice! Go to jail!")

And how fucked up is it that it really *is* jail and not something obvious like The Penalty Box?

By the by, you're not building hotels, you're creating championship arenas! And throw out the little green houses, because here comes the true HEART and SOUL of hockey- the luxury box!

Aside from The Original Six, it looks like team placement came up at random. (Can't be based on championships..) The Sharks and Hurricanes drew the short straws and got Mediterranean (that doesn't look right, but it is) & Baltic, respectively. The Six drew as follows:

Chicago is screwed and off the high rent district at Marvin Gardens. Detroit, NYR, and Boston make up the greens, in that order. Les Habitan (probably fucked that up trying to seem cool) get Park Place while the Leafs get Boardwalk.

I'd bitch about the Kings getting pissed on, but they're at Indiana next to the Flyers, which ain't so bad... and also throws the "Cup wins = placement" theory out the window.

FINALLY... the second is Original Six Edition which is totally OLD SCHOOL and rocking. The jerseys are scattered about, but most of the spaces are equipment and the several thousand different trophies.

I hope *somebody* reads this... that took way too long to do.

Hey, the New Jersey Devils are in the Purple section (in the St. Charles Place slot) with the Washington Capitals and the Calgary Flames! To quote one of my favourite superheroes, "WHASUPWITSDAT?!"

Either way, I wish I could play this version of Monopoly.

Wouldn't there also be an 's' at the end indicating the plural...as in 'Les Habitants?'

That's my high school knowledge of French...four years in Ottawa did me little good.



Q: If you could have interviewed Marvin Gaye, where would you have proposed to meet and what would you have asked him?

A: I would have met anywhere as long as it was before his father shot him. I would have asked him, "Hey, don't you think there's some chance that your father might shoot you? To death, I mean?"
