Monopoly franchises usually make me cringe, but this one's kind of fun. In Motownopoly instead of going to Jail you Lose Your Voice, and each of the properties is a hit Motown single.

And whadya wanna bet that instead of a scheming banker little brother who squirrels away dishonest $500 bills under the gameboard[1], the banker is an Agent who steals away your dreams.

Courtesy of the Motown Music Review, a great little storefront at Detroit International that carries just about everything Motown. My CD stash is slowly growing with each stopover I make: This trip netted a compilation of Martha Reeves[2] and the Vandellas.
