Move over Park Place, here comes Elmwood Avenue.
Monopoly is getting the Buffalo treatment, but game-makers need your input.
WIVB reports that Monopoly creators are soliciting suggestions from Western New Yorkers for a Buffalo version of the game.
Top Trumps USA Inc, via Hasbro, manufactures Monopoly, and they are seeking contributions for the game's famous locales and the Chance and Community Chest cards.
According to WIVB, the toy company is looking for a total of 34 suggestions to fill in the Monopoly board.
The company is taking suggestions via email. To send yours in, you have to submit them by May 28.
Suggestions should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Of course we expect to see major landmarks represented, like Canalside, Key Bank Center and the Peace Bridge.
The company is also looking for suggestions for their Chance and Community Chest cards.
Can't you just picture it, you draw a Chance card during a game of Buffalo Monopoly:
"Visit Shark Girl, if you pass Go collect $200"
"Your friends skipped out on the Bar Bill tab, Go to Jail"
"First Place in the Wing Eating Competition, Collect $50"
What's Buffalo's version of Park Place and Boardwalk?
There's a lot of choice-y streets in Buffalo. We'd have to go with Lincoln Parkway and Nottingham Terrace as Buffalo's Park Place and Boardwalk.
How Many Suburbs Will Make The Cut?
The big question I have is, will the stadium in Orchard Park be called Highmark in the game, or default to the classic: 'The Ralph.'
What About The Game Tokens?
There better be an American Bison as a choice, Shark Girl would be amazing as a token, wings (drum and flat please), and we wouldn't mind a tiny Josh Allen as well.
