Pornopoly

pornographic industry meets the game of Monopoly

During the current coronavirus lockdown, many people are rediscovering the joys of traditional board games like Monopoly, and while several variations already exist, there is always a market for another one. This is why Pornopoly has been created.

Instead of buying up traditional properties, you become a type of pimp or porn baron and take ownership of seedy outlets and other dubious assets.

As alternatives to places like Mayfair or Old Kent Road, there are high-class prostitutes of all kinds: working girls; rent boys; sex-shops; lap-dancing clubs; lady boys etc, all appropriately priced. Instead of Utilities like the Water Dept, there are std clinics, condom machines, backstreet abortion services and money laundering outlets.

Throw in some equivalent new cards like: "pay currupt police inspector £200" or "blackmailed politician pays you £500 to keep quiet" and you have the essence of the new game.

Replacing the nice crisp notes and figures like The Boot, or The Hat, there are bundles of grubby, suspiciously stained money and a set of nasty playing figures such as: Nick The Enforcer; Razors Magee; and Ball Twister Mary. A new luridly designed box, that is sold wrapped in plain brown paper and kept under the counter, completes the package.

       Sounds titillating and engaging. I'm game.

       "Park Lane" has been rebranded as "[xenzag]'s house" in your version, hasn't it ?   

       Although you really belong in the sordid, low-rent end of the market, in Whitechapel ...

       Yes, we thought it might. But once you start googling that sort of thing, there's no end to it.   

       Thankyou for confirming it, anyway.

       Ugh!
Monopoly, disgusting.

       What a bust to antitrust

       I would buy this. Especially if it had localized versions. I could also see value in a variant of this, maybe an extension pack, where you'd have caricatures of current government figures which you would have in your pocket to muscle your adversaries out of the interesting businesses, or legalize certain practices. Maybe the game could start in a very puritan city and one of the goals would be to transform it into the depravity center of the world. The game would end when all the buildings had been put into the service of debauchery and the player with the highest control of the city would obviously win.

       WKTE. Vintage sets from the 1980's are available on eBay.

       Well found but hardly "Widely Known To Exist". I certainly didn't know and I searched, besides my version is better. How do I know this? Because I trust in myself to be more inventive. It looks badly designed as well - a better name would be Crapomonopoly Ha

       // I didn't know and I searched //   

       Google, Bing, Yahoo not available from your basement?

       You missed something that was going on here when the idea was posted. It's too involved to explain. Keep searching, but the answer is in here in context. 8th knows the explanation, but you're too late to ask.
xenzag, Sep 16 2021
  

       Well, I know it’s a revision of an idea you had and deleted in 2010 (link) and this 2020 version contained comments from at least one baker and maybe more who have since deleted their account(s). There was also the long running joke of 8th pretending you were an overpriced dominatrix, was this idea posted around the time you disabused us all of that notion?   

       What else am I missing? I could probably find more in an archive somewhere, but I’m afraid any attempted conversation with 8th would be a bit one sided these days.
a1, Sep 16 2021
  

       Hahaha you're never going to know and are now snared in the conundrum. Keep looking.
xenzag, Sep 16 2021
  

       To the half-ouija board!   

       Well, my extension pack doesn't exist...
