So unfair on those of us across the pond, who only know Monopoly place names like Trafalgar Square (reds) and Mayfair (dark blue). I never really thought of the London version as a knock-off, but you live and learn! Have since obtained the Belfast version (my home town) and it's soooo tacky. They should change the charms to Armoured Land Rovers, bottles of fortified wine and badly dressed glue sniffers! Thanks for a fantastic show, I love it. Makes me want to move to SF. Keep up the nice job, brains!
