Description:
Waymark the specific real world locations that can be found on any edition of Monopoly or its variants. Please click on "show additional information" below to see requirements for posting in this category.
Expanded Description:

Find and photograph the real world locations of the properties that are found on a Monopoly board or one of the Monopoly variants.

A Waymark can be made for any property in the world that is on a Monopoly board, of any edition that has a corresponding real world location.

The Waymarker must entitle the waymark with the name of the property - the edition that contains the property - city, state/province/country (For example: Bryan Hall - Wazzuopoly - Pullman, Washington, USA). Additionally, the Waymarker must provide some evidence that this location or street name really is named in that edition. Evidence may provided by providing either a photo of the board showing the property or a web link to a website describing the contents of the edition.

Suggested "proof" sites include:
Monopolybase
USA Board
UK Board
Australian Board
Wikipedia's list of licensed Monopoly game boards
Monopoly, Monopoly (Monopoly Game History)
World of Monopoly
Wikipedia’s list of localized versions of the Monopoly game
Country Index of the Monopoly Lexicon

Remember, a photo of the property on game board you are waymarking from can be used as an alternate "proof".

What can be waymarked in this category?

  • Any specific real world location that is named on any edition of Monopoly may be waymarked, provided that the Waymarker can prove that the edition really exists and really does name that property.

  • The waymarked location must be the specific one named on the board, so not just any Connecticut Avenue, but the one in Atlantic City, NJ, USA, if you were using the U.S. Standard Edition.

  • Only named properties may be waymarked; i.e., not generic locations such as the Water Works unless the edition specifies a particular location in place of the water works.

  • They must be real world locations, For example, you can't use 'Simpsonsopoly'.



  • The same location may be found on several monopoly variants. That location may be Waymarked for each unique variant board, but may NOT be Waymarked by the same person. This is to allow others to have a chance to Waymark a location that is popular enough to be on several monopoly variant boards. Naturally, any Waymarker may visit all of the same location Waymarks once approved. Updated November 2012
  • The archived forum thread of discussions is available here.

  • Instructions for Posting a Monopoly in the Real World Waymark:

    Please provide:

    1. Personally obtained coordinates

    2. A photo that you have personally taken on location

    3. When creating the waymark name, include the name of the property - the edition that contains the property - city, state/province/country. (For example: Washington Monument - Washington DC edition - Washington, DC, USA)

    4. Proof that it is on a Monopoly type board game with either a photo of the board or a link to an online source.

    5. Identify the corresponding color location compared to the original U.S. 1935 Monopoly Game Board using the drop-down box selections.



    Example: If your waymark is in one of the first two spaces after the "GO" space, you would select: Indigo: Mediterranean Avenue, Baltic Avenue from the drop down list.

    6. The same location may be found on several monopoly variants. That location may be Waymarked for each unique variant board, but may NOT be Waymarked by the same person. This is to allow others to have a chance to Waymark a location that is popular enough to be on several monopoly variant boards. Naturally, any Waymarker may visit all of the same location Waymarks once approved. Updated November 2012

    As of November 2014

    Please have the name format be:

    Name of place/location - NAME OF MONOPOLY BOARD/EDITION - City/Town, State/Providence, Country (not required)
