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)

External links modified[edit]

Hello fellow Wikipedians,

I have just added archive links to 2 external links on Monopoly (game). Please take a moment to review my edit. If necessary, add {{cbignore}} after the link to keep me from modifying it. Alternatively, you can add {{nobots|deny=InternetArchiveBot}} to keep me off the page altogether. I made the following changes:

When you have finished reviewing my changes, please set the checked parameter below to true to let others know.

Question? Archived sources still need to be checked

Monopoly stats?[edit]

I and 2 or 3 other statisticians have determined the most-landed-upon spaces, which ones have the greatest value/return on investment, etc. I'm curious if anyone thinks that kind of content would have a fit in this article. (And, I apologize in advance if it's already there or already discussed...I'm currently experiencing a bug which prevents me from reading any WP content on any page.)

Is this information available in a reliable source? If we can't verify it, we can't include it. DonIago (talk) 18:16, 14 October 2015 (UTC)
I've personally verified the stats posted at [[1]], and have an Excel spreadsheet that models the first 500 turns I could provide if desired, but that of course falls under original research. And I'm not sure if "random guy's webpage" would qualify as WP:RS in many persons' eyes despite its veracity. Jtrevor99 (talk) 22:07, 27 October 2015 (UTC)
I'm going to assume that's a "no" then. Jtrevor99 (talk) 14:53, 18 December 2015 (UTC)
Sorry, didn't mean to leave you hanging. Sorry, but the link you provided doesn't look like an RS to me. DonIago (talk) 15:48, 18 December 2015 (UTC)
No worries! I figured that was the case. It does appear to be true - I've now found a third resource, and all three show identical stats using different methodologies - but I agree none of them likely fit WP:RS. Oh well. Jtrevor99 (talk) 18:43, 18 December 2015 (UTC)

Can you guys put the weight of the board, the size of the spaces ,and some others? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.16.38.36 (talk) 23:36, 31 May 2016 (UTC)

There is in Poland since 1983 a game called Eurobusiness [2] --Erixson (talk) 16:24, 30 December 2015 (UTC)

The element with the hidden image of a 2008 board[edit]

Something's wrong with this section, and I don't dare try and fix it, because I'm not quite sure what the intention of it was. Shouldn't it just be an image insert to the side somewhere, like the other images? It looks like a mess currently: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monopoly_(game)#U.S._versions 195.249.185.2 (talk) 19:56, 24 July 2016 (UTC)

It looks fine to me. What problems are you seeing? Does the UK board look O.K.? Are you reading the article on a smart phone or on a computer? Strawberry4Ever (talk) 23:25, 26 July 2016 (UTC)
Agreed, it looks incorrect to me as well. The "Standard (American Edition) Monopoly board as of September 2008" spanner bisects the two nearby graphics (original Monopoly board patent and 2014 US Monopoly box) on my screen, as well as splitting in half the paragraph that begins "In the U.S. versions shown below...". This is on a 64-bit version of Internet Explorer 11, Windows 7 desktop. Jtrevor99 (talk) 17:14, 27 July 2016 (UTC)
I've added {{clear}} before the hidden image. Does that fix the problem? Strawberry4Ever (talk) 17:37, 27 July 2016 (UTC)
Yep, that fixes it for me at least! I'll have to remember that trick, thanks. Jtrevor99 (talk) 18:23, 27 July 2016 (UTC)
