I was looking to create something that would allow a common linking between the various Monopoly related articles. This is currently an unorganized mess.

I'm thinking there could be a section for History (Publishers, Various Creators, etc), Variants (Licensed, Languages), Spin-Offs (Advance to Boardwalk, the various card games, etc), perhaps a section for spaces/game mechanics (Chance/Community Chance... something else?), and a see-also section with, say Anti-Monopoly in it?

Feel free to pitch in with whatever you can provide. I don't want to just start slapping it all over the various Monopoly related Wiki pages until it's a bit more organized. Thanks! TheUncleBob (talk) 03:32, 26 January 2009 (UTC)

Allegations of Bias[edit]

Just a note, this table isn't intended to be "biased" - just a common navigational template between Monopoly-related articles.

I've cleaned up the previous edit a bit, since I don't think Elizabeth Magie was a board game and to credit Darrow with, say, Winning Moves, a company founded almost 30 years after his passing, seems folly. TheUncleBob (talk) 20:04, 1 November 2009 (UTC)


Surely this template should use the Monopoly colours?!? --Dweller (talk) Become old fashioned! 15:38, 29 March 2017 (UTC)

I don't see why not, though I'm not technically sure how to. As we're not supposed to edit war over it, you can just do it without any come-back too! :-D On a serious note, the only reservation I'd have is one of accessibility, and make sure you don't do something that will make anyone colour blind scratch their head in confusion.

You'd just need to use:
  • | groupstyle="background:SaddleBrown;"
  • | groupstyle="background:LightBlue;"
  • | groupstyle="background:Purple;"
etc in each group to give each line a different background colour, for instance... The Rambling Man (talk) 10:19, 30 March 2017 (UTC)
