Plantation Monopoly

I grew up in the city that serves as the setting for the Monopoly board game. I worked on the Boardwalk through high school, hung out in Marvin Gardens with friends, and failed miserably at picking up girls along Ventnor Avenue. Check out this creative interpretation of the game that was done by an artist based in Charleston, South Carolina.

    Very interesting. But can the person who created this get into legal trouble with Hasbro Inc. (owners of the Monopoly board game) for using their property in a way they would never license or permit?

Now that you've read the post, share your thoughts.
