It has to be the Irish one - although it's been ~15 years since i've seen the board. I could never figure out why kimmage was cheaper than crumlin

Anyway, has it changed much through the idiotic bubble years?

Ghost estates in Leitrim and Laois could be used for the cheapest squares.

How is the English one the original? It's an American game.

This is what the original version looks like: http://abagond.files.wordpress.com/2.../monopoly1.jpg

The original version, invented in USA, was set in New Jersey, I am pretty sure

The Irish edition has been renamed the NAMA edition...

You have bought a house in a ghost estate, loose 250,000 euro.

You developed a hotel in the IFSC that now lies empty. Loose 8,6 million euro.

You're holiday apartment in Croatia still lies unfinished, loose 180,000 euro.

You have drawn the 'get bailed out by the state card', skip over 'go directly to jail' and proceed directly to 'resident in the UK for bankruptcy purposes'....

The UK one. Had it growing up in London, took it with me when I moved here. Loved that game, had some real long marathon sessions playing it.

Whilst it is an American game and was originally based around New Jersey, outside America the London one is generally seen as being the 'normal' game in the English-speaking World. I know a few Aussies who have done the Monopoly Pub Crawl around London because that is the version of the game that they grew up with, for example.

I think it's good that Ireland seemingly prefers it's own one though.
