Balgus the Awesome (from Escaflowne)
One of the stories about changing the Monopoly tokens amused with an inane quote. It prompted me to lis 10 board game things more innovative than changing the Monopoly tokens.

I also got round to reading, and greatly enjoying, The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms by N.K. Jemisin.

I did watch the anime movie King of Thorn last night but I'm struggling for things to say about it. It is a very visually pretty science fictional take on Sleeping Beauty, but I'm not sure what I feel about it. In other news the Winter 2013 season has begun and I'm watching bits and pieces, but nothing concrete enough to write about yet.

In a sense Monopoly is a resource management game.

I'd like to revive the original Monopoly; http://landlordsgame.info/

Interesting piece of history there.

Indeed. A modern version with global scope would make design entertaining. It's been rolling around in my mind for a few months now..

I loved The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms.
