My hometown is Topeka, KS, which I hated until I moved away for college and now when I go home I am reminded of the charm of the city. My friends and I play a lot of monopoly, so I decided to make a Topeka edition so that when my boyfriend and I go home we can play the Topeka version with our friends. I found a template online and set to work changing the names of the streets to areas of Topeka, starting with the worst areas of town to replace Baltic and Mediterranean (Oakland and 6th Street) and working around the board to the richest areas for Park Place and Boardwalk (Clarion Lakes and Potwin). We just used the chance and community chest cards from an older game, but made new property cards. I haven't gotten any "in action" shots yet, but here's the game board:

Ha... funny
I moved from Topeka but moved back cuz my fam is here.  I can't wait to leave, again!  I'll be happy to take a Topeka Monopoly with me as a reminder though  Smiley

Very cool!
Do you happen to still have a link to the template you used?

I found the template on this guy's blog. You can only use it if you have photoshop, but I just downloaded a 30 day trial to make it.

I am at a loss for a camera, so there won't be action shots, I'm sorry!

I love this!  The first thing I looked for was Wanamaker Road.  Yep, it was there!  How could it not be? 

I'm from Emporia originally, but my dad worked in Topeka for many years.  I've also lived in Lawrence, and live in Kansas City, KS now.  I'd love to see the Kansas City version someday too!  I was just skimming since I hadn't checked out any of these challenges before, and I'm happy to see Kansas represented!
