Gayopoly

Picture of Gayopoly

Tongue in cheek version of the classic monopoly. Player tokens are altered - now you can choose from a jeep, teddy bear, blow drier, leather cap, handcuffs or a stiletto heel. Properties have been changed to a 'gay' theme as well - ie. Fire Island and Castro Street. Instead of buying houses and hotels, you can buy bars and bathhouses.

The one departure from the original is the inclusion of Family Pride cards. When landing on the appropriate space, the description of a famous gay man is read aloud, and the player that can correctly identify the person can move ahead to any space on the board.

Also different is the addition of Camp Cards. When these are drawn, you must perform the indicated action (ie. 'say: 'faaabulous!' six different ways and receive $3).

Rumor has it that there were only a very limited number of copies of this game, as it was produced by The Parker Sisters, a division of Fire Island games, and were sued for copyright infringement by Parker Brothers.


Man, I thought those obnoxious monopoly versions had hit rock bottom when colleges and small cities came out with their own. Who in their right mind would actually buy Cleveland Monopoly anyway? This however takes the cake as the weirdest of the bunch. I can't say I'm surprised that parker brothers sued almost immediately.
