Re: Settling on a date

The place to discuss plans and ideas for the New Jersey convention of Chase Lounge members to take place in the latter half of 2007. Input from those familiar with the Newark area is especially welcome. Only members with post counts of 5 or more can "Join this Club" (i.e., gain access to this forum.)

If you are certain that you will attend, please sign into the Convention Roll Call and be counted.

Re: Settling on a date

I had originally planned to present a couple of "gifts"/awards to Chase at the dinner. I thought one gift could be a custom built "Sopranos Edition Monopoly Set" with low-rent property names like HUD Crack House and Blanca's Apartment and higher end properties like Sacrimoni/Baccala Mansion and the Plaza Hotel. Railroads would include -- what else -- the Blue Comet. Tokens would include a duck (of course!), Ralph's head, a tiny bottle of grapa, karaoke microphone, a little Escalade icon, an onion ring, etc. A special rule card spelling out the free parking rule, and complete with blood stains, would be included. I would be willing to actually make the thing myself if I get enough input on procuring the proper materials.

Please share ideas for the set here.

If you guys like this idea, we can open up a separate thread so everyone can contribute design and fabrication ideas.

This is such an awesome idea! Please do start a tread for it. I'm sure the minds here could come up with something really cool.

How much fun would it be to make up Chance and Community Chest cards?

This could be of interest

I found this, they custom make the board for you.

I'm sure if you spoke to the manufacturers, they could tailor it to even further specifics.

Oh jeez, what an awesome idea! All your suggestions for it thus far, Fly, are brilliant! I'll have to give this some thought and see if I can contribute anything to it ...

And richjcrouch, what an invaluable find, with that custom-board maker.

Believe me, Silvio, I had to restrain myself from suggesting the "schlong in Jan's mouth" as a token.:icon_redface::icon_mrgreen:

richjcrouch, that's an interesting site you located and one that might be worth pursuing for the board itself. I'm certain we will be on our own when it comes to tokens and chance/community chest.

Pork Store, your ideas are hilarious. Keep 'em coming.

It occurs to me that if you guys like this idea enough, perhaps we could see about getting a small run of them manufactured somewhere so that the per set cost comes down significantly. And obviously we would do this "irregardless" of whether we meet Chase. Definitely would be a cool conversation piece at my next Monopoly game (which is probably due sometime over the next 5 years:icon_biggrin:).
