I was thinking about monopoly a couple of nights ago and it occurred to me that the game is a piece of our culture. However, monopoly, is drastically different from lets say chess, go, shogi, chinese chess, cards... etc because its "owned". Over time the game has slowly made more and more complex until being mass manufactured has become the only option for the game.
And so now im considering what it would be like if the game were streamlined and made more abstract. I think it would be beautiful.
