Our favorite one that is the only one we play on is, get this, Franklin Mint one! It's not meant to be played on because it's expensive and suppose to be a collectors edition but a friend gave it to us because they said they don't play it anymore. It was a little beat up from them playing on it and I was shocked they even did that! I can't even imagine just giving that away! But since it was not in mint condition anymore, a little scratched up, velvet slightly worn, we decided it's okay to play on it too and it's really nice! Not sure it would resell for very well since it's slightly worn so why not get some use out of it! It has a drawer in it to hold the money and pieces. That book holds the property cards in it.

Here is a picture of one off the internet:

I love it! We would be playing it too, it looks so cool.

Took a pic of it, and managed to get sleeping beauty, too =)

I hope so too!! My friends daughter came home from school Monday with a fever. She acted fine other than having a fever! Something is in the air.. Hope you are better today!

My plans to make spaghetti sauce are on hold - I'd hate to lose electricity right in the middle of the sauce making as I tend to make a bit of a mess and I really don't want to wake up to piles of dirty dishes. A few are okay, but not sink fulls! I forgot to pick basil, too, and I can't have sauce without basil! I'd rather the rain, though! Good night to relax and catch up on my reading.
Lucky you getting rain!!! My walking partner said she heard thunder overnight, & we lost power for a split second, but never got a drop of rain! Totally know what you mean about a pile of dishes! And canning does leave you with a pile of dishes & big ones at that! Hope you are able to make your sauce today!

I really really want one!!!!!!!! This looks so awesome!!!!!!!!!!!! I also want a tree too!
