So if they are trying to replicate the monopoly game, then exactly how should it look?

To me, there is only so much one can do to keep the game theme intact.. with a football flare.

It shouldn't look like a large board of advertisements. My initial perception of what it was going to be was something vastly different.

Prominent local businesses, such as Title Town Oil, Grand Central Station, Pomp’s Tire, Escort Limousine Service, Bayland Buildings and Doc’s Harley-Davidson, will fill the property spaces on the board game. A total of 2,500 games have been produced and will be available for purchase at Grand Central Station locations in Northeast Wisconsin for $39.95 each


Well being that it is a fund raiser of sorts, I am sure that the naming rights of each square was sold to boost the revenue generated. But I get what you are saying..

2500 * 39.95 = $ 99,875 split between two entities isn't a ton.. it would be curious to know what each square cost a business.

Good thing there isn't any Grand Central Stations around here.. I would probably buy one for a Christmas gift for my mother. LOL.
