Comparisons to Monopoly

Many game features that were present in the original version of Monopoly have been removed in Make Your Own-opoly. These include:

  • Houses and Hotels.
  • Eight missing spaces: an official Monopoly board has four rows with ten spaces on each; 40 spaces in total. Make Your Own-opoly has four rows of eight spaces; totaling 32 spaces.
  • Chance and Community Chest cards; 12 "Bad news" and "Good news" cards are used instead (presumably due to legal reasons)
  • Railroads are among the missing spaces (again, due to legal reasons)
  • Free Parking is changed to a "Roll again" space, Jail becomes "Lose a Turn" and Go to Jail becomes "Fate" for unknown reasons (presumably legal reasons).
