At least the US and UK versions, I am not sure about other countries. Although there are also lots of versions for movies and such that are basically the same game with different names on the spaces.

There is a version (or even more versions) for every country the game is sold in.
And game boards for special occasions:

The Times (London, not New York) reports that
Quote:
President Trump’s decision to cancel his visit to London was for “personal reasons” after a series of perceived slights, British officials said last night.

Mr Trump had been expected to open the new American embassy in the capital but has scrapped the visit after clashing with the mayor of London and Theresa May.

A Whitehall source told The Times that the decision came after the president was left smarting over rows including a rebuke from the prime minister when he appeared to endorse a far-right group. “I don’t think anyone believes this is an issue of policy or divergence between our countries,” the source said.

A US diplomatic source said that “concerns about the optics” were “part of the menu” of issues that the White House had.

[....]

Nile Gardiner, a close ally of Mr Trump and director of the Margaret Thatcher Centre for Freedom at the Heritage Foundation, said: “Without doubt the very hostile messaging from Sadiq Khan and Jeremy Corbyn played a big factor in this. To have a mayor of London directly attacking the US president and saying he’s not welcome would be a big factor in the overall decision making, as would be the prospect of mass protests.”

David Frum, a former speechwriter to George W Bush and the author of Trumpocracy, said: “I think he feels slighted by the British nation. He had been looking forward to the rapturous crowds lining the streets on the way to Buckingham Palace. Something like Winston Churchill’s funeral, something like that was what he had in mind. I think the British government has been gently trying to communicate to him that while a visit from our great ally is always very welcome, Glasgow is actually quite nice at this time of the year, and the Hebrides even better.”

Also, out of interest, The Times has an interview with David Frum. ‘Trump’s latest remarks on London show how fraudulent his legend is’

Yeah, I have seen media themed Monopoly games, I just never considered there might be different vase versions.

Makes sense though.

At this rate, I half expect a country to get fed up and expel the US Embassy in their nation, only to have the Ambassador request of that country political asylum for themselves and the entire building's staff.

Filmmaker Michael Moore threatens Donald Trump with fracking at his doorstep | Newshub
Quote:
The Bowling for Columbine director is responding to the White House's recently unveiled plan to open up huge sections of the California coast for fracking.
The threats don't seem to be idle, with the filmmaker posting Twitter pictures of the fracker he plans to use.
"Here's our fracker!," he commented. "We'll be drilling right off the coast of Mar-a-Lago.
"God Bless You Donald Trump for making this possible! The oil we drill just off your beach will pay 4 our entire show!
"And any spills - we're going to let the ppl of Florida keep whatever they collect 4 free!"

Actually, Florida is 'mysteriously' exempt from offshore drilling.

If Rump actually looked into it, he might find many of Haiti's misfortunes were caused by people like himself, fellow countrymen and raging assholes.

500 mil and only 6 houses, sheesh!
Then cholera struck Haiti.

The fact there's any order there at all after such twin disasters is despite assholes like Rump.

Quote:
The Trump administration said Tuesday it had ruled out drilling for oil and gas off the coast of Florida after strong opposition from the state’s Republican governor, Rick Scott.

Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke moved last week to allow new offshore oil and gas drilling in nearly all United States coastal waters, opening more than a billion acres in the Arctic, Pacific, Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico to potential leases. The decision prompted an outcry from Republican and Democratic governors alike on both coasts.

I support the governor’s position that Florida is unique and its coasts are heavily reliant on tourism as an economic driver,” Mr. Zinke said in a statement after meeting Governor Scott in Florida. “I am removing Florida from consideration for any new oil and gas platforms.”
Because California and other states aren't unique and their coasts aren't heavily reliant on tourism? Oh, really.

Via Trump's Norway immigration idea? There's one problem|CBS News, which has some other interesting facts and figures about the two countries.
Quote:
Immigration from the Scandinavian country has slowed to a trickle in the last several years. In 2016, only 404 Norwegians became lawful permanent residents, according to the Department of Homeland Security. By comparison, Norway had about 10,000 immigrants from North America in 2016, according to Statistics Norway.

That's a far cry from the 1880 to 1889, when more than 185,000 Norwegians became lawful permanent U.S. residents, representing almost one-tenth of Norway's population at the time.
These numbers: Who has the shithole country? This immigrant descendant would gladly return, if it were possible.
