Cardboard tokens in wooden blocks from UK 1940s sets[edit]

I can certainly confirm that these exist—as a child I played Monopoly with the cardboard tokens. I think that the set is probably stored in my parents loft, would a photo of them be sufficient as evidential citation? (If I can find them!) --Geoff Riley (talk) 16:33, 26 September 2013 (UTC)

Unfortunately not. We need a reliable source. DonIago (talk) 18:19, 26 September 2013 (UTC)
We featured video of these cardboard tokens in the film Under the Boardwalk: The MONOPOLY Story, which is also used as a reliable source for other elements in this article and the History of Monopoly article. Tostie14 (talk) 12:56, 29 September 2013 (UTC)

Link to Official Rules is out of date[edit]

On the main page, someone added a link to the "official rules" on Hasbro's website. While the link is accurate, the resulting PDF is actually an outdated set of rules from the #9 edition sold before 2008. Some notable differences include the inclusion of the speed die, the removal of the 10% option for paying income tax, and the distribution of starting bills to each player. I'd suggest we remove that link. Tostie14 (talk) 23:19, 19 January 2014 (UTC)

Sociopoly[edit]

The spinoff "Sociopoly" seems prominent enough and important enough to be included. See: http://laurenssociologyblog.blogspot.com/2010/04/sociopoly.html for mention of it and http://www.scdc.org.uk/media/resources/Grundtvigcasestudies/Sociopoly%20board%20game%20%28Hungary%29.pdf for a more detailed description of the game. Thanks! --Lbeaumont (talk) 04:29, 2 February 2014 (UTC)

suggested minimum age should be specified[edit]

Edit on February 10 2014[edit]

I replaces the commas and added semi colons to the prices of the railroads.

Photo of game?[edit]

I find it amazing that their is no photo of this game, one of the most popular in the world (for an example of what I'm talking about, see this board game). The table layout is great, but a photo would help too. Is there really some stringent legal nuance that prevents us from including a photo of this nearly ubiquitous game? — Frεcklεfσσt | Talk 15:10, 16 May 2014 (UTC)
