Shouldn't it be Blogopoly? Copyright? Blogpoly don't sound right.

So two days ago, while accurate, should be one tag. Like, so.two.days.ago or SoTwoDaysAgo.

We're pure Baltic Avenue though, if that.

Metatalk is "Go To Jail," though, I figure.

Yes. -opoly is the proper suffix, and official way to make your board game.

Copyright?
Sorta

I actually had Marinopoly as a kid, themed on Marin county (that nifty area on the other side of the Golden Gate Bridge). I'm sure every major city or county had a [CITY]opoly-themed game, usually sold as a fundraiser with local businesses sponsoring properties and local flavored humor on the cards.

The cards usually mentioned getting a rebate from MMWD for bricking your toilet during the drought or being fined for not getting a permit to install your redwood jacuzzi. If I remember correctly the game pieces were a BMW {basic marin wheels}, a latte and a coke spoon.

At least boing boing is the crappiest one.

The game is cute. A nice link. I don't like the cut of Milton's jib though. Heat up the tar. Find a chicken. Maybe two.

I love chicken.

I was just being snarky, if I didn't think it was awesome I wouldn't risk a front page post. I thought it was very clever and tad blogosphere masturbatory. My only neg was it seems to feature mostly tools of blogs than big blogs like say kuro5hin, /., gizmodo, linksfilter, and the like. BB get 1.6M+ visitors and is a blog, fine it's a valid addition.

Blog only board perhaps for someone else to make? Or maybe a Memeopoly would be a worthy endeavor referencing Hamster Dance, AYBABTU, and {shudder} Goatse.cx

Memeopoly is a great idea ("I kiss you" cards!)

And this game means what exactly?
posted by sjvilla79 at 12:59 AM on May 14, 2005


Not sure which you mean... Mine is supposed to be the answer side of a "Trivial Pursuit, Blogger edition" game card, and the posted site is about translating a Monopoly game board into an internet/blog-oriented game in terms of nomenclature and symbology. It's all imaginary.

I wonder what the game pieces for Blogopoly (no - don't like "Blogpoly, either!) should be? A tiny mousepad? The Mozilla monster head? The Google "g" could be one, maybe...

Game pieces? Coll! I got first dibs on the disembodied head.

Sorry, taz, I was talking about Blogpoly Blogopoly. I mean I'm struggling to find the point of it. And I'm aware of its narrative. Just seems like a good waste of time, though.

Ah! It definitely is! But I'm always a sucker for completely absurd timesinks (hence my mefi membership!).

No worries, taz. Whatever floats your boat.

taz: nice use of "dooced". Friggin awesome!

I've got a copy of the dot-com version of Monoply . Pretty funny, what with the number of companies now deceased.

I suspect any version of Blogflopoly will have a shorter half-life.

Game pieces? Coll! I got first dibs on the disembodied head.

Is there a gaping goat.se piece?

I can fully imagine making a monopoly board of blog properties, but this doesn't seem to be it. How is Skype a blogging tool?

>How is Skype a blogging tool?

It's used by high-hit bloggers, and most of them are tools.
