We'd seen a few other Texas towns get Monopoly versions, looking at you Gun Barrel City, we were excited to learn this week that Tyler has now been thrown into the mix.

For some reason that were not sure of, Monopoly is probably the most memorable board game from your youth. For those unfamiliar, or who may have forgotten in the game "players roll two six-sided dice to move around the game board, buying and trading properties, and developing them with houses and hotels. Players collect rent from their opponents, with the goal being to drive them into bankruptcy. Money can also be gained or lost through Chance and Community Chest cards, and tax squares; players can end up in jail, which they cannot move from until they have met one of several conditions. The game has numerous house rules, and hundreds of different editions exist, as well as many spin-offs and related media. Monopoly has become a part of international popular culture, having been licensed locally in more than 103 countries and printed in more than thirty-seven languages." And now Tyler, TX gets our own version.
