Well.. What's holding you up.... start making one. since you got the "brains" here.

The umpteen millions it would require to buy the rights?

And while the method wasn't great, the fact is accurate.

Can you imagine (entertainment?) having online monopoly games? That would be awesome indeed.

Sadly, this is ea. and ea doesn't give us things we ACTUALLY want without stupidly massive strings.

I don't own the rights to the game plus the closest thing to programming I can do is make a grilled cheese sandwich.
