Some time around last year I spent quite a bit of time redesigning a Monopoly board.

Lovely! Is there a larger size anywhere to see some of the details?
cool, if you will made a cycle version ?
I would love to see this in large detail. I'm loving the lay of it so far, nonetheless. Reminds me a bit of the London Underground.
Would buy tomorrow.
Beautiful board layout. Damn you, Mantia.
but one of the iconic things about Monopoly is the square structure :P
Daniel, it's also a huge waste of space.
Very cool! But just where am I supposed to throw my dice so I don't wipe out all of my real-estate investments..? ;)
Michael: on the table.
That's a superb idea. It'd make an excellent travel edition. Looking forward to seeing more.
Nice layout. Does this speed up play at all?
Yes! Now we'll have coffee table room for drinks!
Nice space problem solved.
Where do the Community Chest and Chance cards go?
Whose going to build it in HTML5?
Andy: on the table.
All: the Monopoly board as it exists today is mostly a waste of space. Cards and dice rolls can be moved to the table itself, rather than the board. This allows a little more room for each player's cash, deeds, drinks, etc. I always found playing Monopoly took up too much space that I never had enough space for my properties.
So... I may have taken Meg's challenge and started marking this up. :)
But I thought I'd ping you guys for an opinion before I get further, would you write the markup in board order (Mediterranean -> Board Walk) and use absolute positioning for the layout, or mark it up in visual left-right top-bottom order (Go to Jail -> Mediterranean) and do a nice float (I guess you could go Board Walk -> Med and do a float right)
I like the nice rhythm and simply CSS of floating, but I think having the markup in order is more important.
@Louie, why did you keep Mediterranean in the bottom right instead of a Western reading format of top left?
@Philip wonderful... no advice on the mark-up, although elegance is relative. i'd emphasize an iterative approach :)
concept (bait): the board is isometric. rotates around an axis AND tilts with the players perspective

All the heavy lifting is done, just working on the details now.

Cant wait to see the final product... Really cool
Is there space for the community chest and chance cards? Do they go on the "Monopoly" section on the right? Also, I always think "town bike" when I see "community chest", but I'm just dirty like that.
