Is the name of the game the same? If it is exactly "Monopoly", then it should count.

A player can land on Mayfair, if he's playing with a Yoo Kay Monopoly set. I say allow it.

It should count because the q doesn't say it has to be American version. I do wonder how he knew that though...

Question 18. As measured by the Foreign Trade Statistics office of the US Census Bureau, name one of our top fifteen trading partners, measured in value of goods only (not services). This can be in imports, exports, or total trade and is measured using the latest YTD data.

Connecticut Ave is a light blue spot. It's a spot on the board. I suggest you not get pedantic since "Waterworks" is not a spot on the board either.

orangecrush obviously made a mistake, but since it was so blatantly hilarious (and racist), I kept it as Mandarin Gardens.

I guess the bonus point strategy isn't a great one since I'm losing more points than I'll end up getting back.

For the last question, here are the valid answers. (See Manny's helpful link for more info):

Australia
Belgium
Brazil
Canada
China
Germany
France
Hong Kong
India
Ireland
Italy
Japan
Malaysia
Mexico

<hr>

In other news, France is a valid question. No one answered Vichy France directly, it was only placed in a parentheses.

I think you missed my answer, which I believe was Penn Railroad. It's a good thing I couldn't remember if it was Penn Avenue or Penn Place.

That was the catch with it. I avoided some answers that would give me a bonus because i figured they were too obvious

When I read this, the voice in my head sounds like Germain from the Flight of the Conchords ala Albi the racist dragon.

wmansir : -75
Rockmjd23 : -73
JasonF : -60

feenst : -5
belboz : -4
Thor Simpson : 4

That's the most brutal Reverse Sheep question we've had so far.

NOTE: Now that "France" is an accepted answer, I've updated those scores. Tracer's Mayfair answer is correct & unique, but his Israel answer is still up in the air.

Made in Malaysia. Finally my years of buying cheap crap pays off. Indonesia has to be close, a lot of my cheap crap has that stamped on it too.

Given the standings, is now a good time to rule on the possible use of performance enhancing googles?

I disagree, since it was only my own laziness and self-consciousness that prevented my from answering it exactly the same way.
