Thank God. It almost killed me, but heres the last of them. Find any mistakes please. I had to think of the last 4 off the top of my head.

Anyhoo, on a related matter, heres the original thread where the idea first began. Check it out. http://www.peelified.com/cgi-bin/Futurama/15-000035/

Now, I have to start on the property cards, then the pieces, then finish the board, make the rules, divide up the board into chunks, and then, sort the stuff into printable format for the end users. Hurrah. There is less that I can show you now, but I'll keep you posted.

Oh yes, the pictures.

More good news. I found good sizes for the cash, properties, and cards.

Okey dokey... here the question. Pieces.

Letters and Packages for the Houses and Hotels.
32 Letters, 12 Packages. Just like the game.

Theres 8 more chance/cchest cards than the game, but thats just more fun.

I might put a little more cash in the pack to print off so you have a little more in the bank.

For the tokens, I figure a conversion of the original pieces would be cool. I need help thinking of stuff. If you could include the characters, great. I want a Fry, a Leela and A Bender at least. The rest aren't as important.

Dog: Hypnotoad?
Car: Werecar-bender? Bender-cart with leela riding?
Cowboy: Zoidy-on-sperm?
Iron: ?
Shoe: ?
Wheelbarrow: ?
Top Hat: ?
Thimble: ?
Cannon: Fry @ the guns?
Battleship: Titanic?

Shoe: Leela's green-striped boot
Wheelbarrow: Hermes on a Slowmobile

Battleship: Nimbus, Omicronian ship, or P. E. Ship

Wheelbarrow: The PE ship trolley thing they break in Brannigan Begin Again.
Battleship: Nimbus, not the PE ship as that features heavily on the board itself.

Would just like to point out that in the UK our monopoly boards have come with varying pieces over the years, but never more than about 8. I wouldn't feel bad about taking a couple out if you couldn't find good ideas for them.

That is cool Chump, I like it.

I found a board I started making when the first thread came about, but I never did anything else with it since way back then. Ill post it when I have enough webspace.

Thanks for the support. I'll work on it tomorrow maybe, definately this weekend. I'm busy today and Friday is the school's winter formal...  big grin perhaps some pictures of that later... back on topic. I want to compromise between just having characters and having obscure Futurama references. Mainly because the actual characters have little to do with the game up until this point. If I don't have them somewhere, it would be weird. Wheres fry? Bender? Leela? I don't want that. But I want to be witty. So, the tokens should each have a character in them. I think I'll shortlist it to 8 pieces (who needs ten? never seen 10 people play at once). Revised list:

Dog: Hypnotoad.
Car: Bender with Wheels (WitHW)
Cowboy: Zoidy Riding the Sperm.
Shoe: Leela guesturing to striped boot.
Wheelbarrow: Hermes on slowmobile
Thimble: Prof with glowing nose
Cannon: Fry with Blaster from "War IT H-Word"
Battleship: Titanic or Nimbus.

Isn't Bender with Wheels from AOI 1? I'm sure it is, not War is the H Word.

It's from "War Is The H-Word". After his surgery he come into the officer's club on wheels, as if he is in a wheel-chair.

Bender: "I got wheels...with clickity-clackers."

Ooooooh, I see what you mean. I thought Chump meant the Bender Cart that Leela makes in AOI 1.

No, I mean the wheelchair dealie. The cart isn't the same, plus that would mean two Leela's...

Anyway, after a while, I'll realease more pieces for download. Bonus sets. Maybe more cards too.

Woo! Are you going to "cut out" the pieces from framegrabs etc? An Xmas set of pieces would be really nice next Xmas. Zoidy on pogo stick etc.

Yes, I plan to get the grabs, make scans of them, then place them with a guide to folding and cutting. If you don't like the way that they look, you will be more than welcome to try... as long as you share with the class.

We can only hope. I'm gathering framegrabs now... they may limit the tokens actually. If I can't get a good grab, theres no way I can do some of these things.

Heres what I'm looking to do with the tokens:
 http://server29.hypermart.net/kmac/peel/tk-1.gif

Each panel is a different face. You fold it to form a triangle. The icon face and the back (the one with AL1 on it) are the front and back. The other 2 are the bottom. Fold on each line. Then glue, tape, staple, whatever the two bottom together. Its a lot simpler than it sounds.

Nice and simple, I did think cutting the characters out to make into tokens would be fiddly. Good work.

looks good.. but i think you should change this one http://www.scanartcentral.com/futuropoly/Cards/cd-19.gif

to "terrible nightmarish diarrhea", instead of "sonic diarrhea".. the guy from little market said the slug would cause "terrible nightmarish diarrhea".

"sonic diarrhea" was one of the things on the waiver hermes had leela sign in se01ep02 "the series has landed"

Ok people, as I mentioned before I started (and nearly finished) making a board when the first thread came about.

Click here to see it. (although heavily "image sliced," it will be slow to load for dial up users (like myself  smile)

I have a minor remark. Why use the "" symbol? I thought they used "$" in Futurama.

Yeah, your board looks a lot more like the one I own (Scotland). I like Chump's better though, more colourful and snazzy.

Trudging along. I'm scanning picture for pieces, but mostly slacking. I'll do some work now rather than play games.

Mit, nice, but whats with the colours?

« Reply #69 on: 12-28-2002 05:58 »

I thought those were the correct colours, maybe its the old English version and American/Canadian version difference or something.

I like the ideas for the pieces by the way, the first one looked cool.

On top of the hypnotoad, heres 3 other pictures that will be tokens when shrunk and adjusted:


The Cowboy


The Wheelbarrow


The Shoe

Did a picture of Bender-warecar, which will stand in for a car.

And the hypnotoad is taking the dog's place. Seymour just isn't as cool.

This makes it:

Car: Bender
Dog: Hypnotoad
Wheelbarrow: Bender/Leela
Shoe: Leela
Cowboy: Zoidy

For the remaining 3 or 5, I definately want a Fry, and choosing from Amy, Hermes, Zapp, Prof, Kif, Hyperchicken and Scruffy.

Why not use the "HyperDeath (TM)" cannon from 'Brannigan Begins Again' for the cannon?

I can't find a decent picture of it... plus if I did, its connected to the ship, and that would look kind of weird. I'd have to see a picture of it again to see if I could take just the cannon, or what.
