    > 8 colour groups, 8 RD series. Does seem to be woarkable doesn?t it. But which three things from each series?

    Well I’ve been busy over the last few days working out everything for this. I’m sorry Baz, I know it’s your core idea, but the G&T guys’ll tell you that when I get an idea in my head, more flood in and I can’t get it out til I write them down or tell someone.

    OK.

    I collated all the ideas from the fora so far and have come up with the following game plan.

    I think since we’re following the game as per the series then we can use the base colours of the DVD releases as the colour code for each section so here we go:

    GO – Ironically i Haven’t worked that out yet…

    —————

    Series 1 – (Red)

    Technician’s Quarters
    Skutter’s Broom Cupboard

    (joke being that the Skutter’s Broom Cupboard is worth MORE than the Technician’s Quarters)

    ———–

    Series 2 – (Blue)

    Ganymede holiday Inn (Stasis Leak)
    Nova 5 (Kryten)
    Observation Dome (Thanks For The Memory)

    ———–

    Series 3 – (Green)

    Sickbay (Polymorph, Not too sure about this one, it’s a little ambivalent)
    Backwards Earth (Backwards, I like the idea of the Deed Card heving reverse writing on it)
    Xanadu (Timeslides)

    ———–

    Series 4 – (Beige)

    Science Room (White Hole)
    Justice World (Justice)
    WaxWorld (Meltdown)

    ———–

    Series 5 – (Aquamarine)

    Psi-Moon (Terrorform)
    SSS Esperanto (Back To Reality)
    SSS Enlightenment (Holoship)

    ———–

    Series 6 – (Brown)

    Gemini 12 (Out Of Time, I know this wasn’t reffered to but it’s a good name for a location for Series VI)
    RimmerWorld (Rimmerworld)

    ———–

    Series 7 – (Purple)

    Aigburth Arms, 2155 (Ouroboros, Tenuous I know but again it’d be nice to have it in there)

    Leviathan (Epideme)

    SS Centauri (Beyond A Joke)

    ———–

    Series 8 – (Orange)

    SSS Silverberg (Cassandra, being one of the strongest episodes, deserves a mention)

    Captain’s Office (Pete, reason for this is because I believe that because we’ve got the Technicia’s Quarters at the bottom, it be only right you have the Captain’s Office at the top)

    ====================================================

    Utilities:

    Electric Company: Divadroid International

    Water Works: Crapola Inc.

    ===================================================

    Stations:

    Now i’m really not sure about how this would work but I think if you had the main moons mentioned in Dwarf lore would be quite cool is:

    Io
    Mimas
    Ganymede
    Titan
    Miranda

    take your pick with those.

    =======================================================

    Communitiy Chest: I think the Post Pod is a GREAT IDEA for this. Can open up loads of opportunities for bills and birthday (and deathday stuff) to appear in.

    Chance: I have a strong conviction of using the Locker Room as this, Since the guys are opening up lockers at random. then it seems that you dont know what you’re gonna get.

    ========================================================

    Jail: COuld be Quarantine, or the Tank. I purposely left those out of the square in order to choose.

    Personally I really like the idea of quarantine being the Jail as the “GO TO JAIL” square could have Rimmer in his gingham dress looking mad.

    I also think that the values of everything should stay the same only having the $? logo before them.

    I think that’s it, I told you guys I have a lot of time on my hands….

    I was thinking about the Chance and Community Chest.

    Maybe the Chance could be the “Locker Room Game” where you pick a Locker and you get what’s in it, you may lose money by getting a flame in the face. or you may get a bundle of cash…

    we have a rule that whenever someone gets fined of charged that isn’t rent, the money goes under board in the ‘kitty’ (which is actually a small cat we placed there before start of play) and if you land on free parking then you get the money, i’ve just finished a game with my nephew (who’s 17) and we ended up with ?2,825 (my nephew has a fucking eidetic memory or something for these things) and it can make or break a game.

    I’m in the process of creating something at the moment, i’ll keep you posted.

    > No offense, but do people really think ?having the idea? is the hardest part of getting merchandise designed, produced and distributed?!

    Of course not, Andrew.

    We’ve personally seen the procedure of creation, design, and production of the Dwarf DVD’s to know that it takes a shedload of planning. But I seriously believe that this is a marketable idea

    Do the locations have to be ON Red Dwarf or would it be places that have appeared in Red Dwarf:

    SSS Esperanto,
    Justice World,
    SS Centauri,
    Io,
    Miranda,
    Mimas,
    Garbage World, would be Old Kent Road.

    yes? no?

    Sorry for the multiple posts but they’re on seperate subjects :)

    > Ooooh special rule. Every time you roll a 5 and 2 you can move to the square of your choosing ;-)

    “Ok, Rimmer… what did you do with the dice?”

    “…I threw a 5 and a 2…”

    Was that intentional, Karl?

    I honestly think this is a really good idea for GNP to get in on this.

    There could be a competition for submissions into the contents of the Chance cards and Community chest. I’m sure fans would love to know that their submissions ended up in the actual game. Even the locations would be fan-submitted! You wouldn’t have to lift a finger.

    Mostly….

    > The irony of all this, of course, is that the REGULAR version of Monopoly is a key part of the Dwarf mythos already. As far as the novels are concerned, this game is, indirectly, what landed Lister on the damn ship in the first place.

    Although I completely forgot about this, it’s all the more reason to make a Dwarf-version of it. if I do the “Make-Your-Own-Opoly”, then I would have to create box art for it and everything, to fulfil my dream of having a real Dwarf version.

    as for the ?traditional? white metal pieces,

    a little red dwarf
    a little starbug
    a little blue midget
    A bazookoid.
    when you say Polymorph (I envisage the little ‘kevin’ version, and actually making the hurgh noises as you move round the board)
    lister’s deer stalker hat (tying in with the bowler hat from the original)

    I REALLY WANT THIS GAME NOW. Andrew can we make this happen please?

    I hope you weren’t REALLY offended by that Andrew. It’s just on Amazon you always get a really beefed up A+ rating 5 star review, followed by a really negative view immediately after it, i was just following protocol :) I wasn’t strong enough to go against the flow.

    I have noticed that a lot of mishearings are from Craig, I’ve never realised just how quick he actually speaks.

    And Austin, you did well to pick out THAT much from that little bit of dialogue. Because only until I read the subtitles on the IV DVD did I realise what he actually said.

    And also i’ve noticed that on Camille, Craig says “when Nelson put the telescape to his blind eye…”

    what’s a telescape?
