‘Todays Monopoly board preview based on current rental prices’
Mayfair may have always been a steal on the Monopoly board; you can’t argue with £400 for the entire area. But what if the famous game of capitalism featured actual rental prices — how much would you be forking out then?
On the 80th anniversary of the tiff-inducing board game, Weroom has produced a Monopoly board that compares the original prices on the board to the average monthly fee for renting a room in that area. The results are not pretty. A single room in Mayfair will now set you back £1,549 a month (you could stay there for a measly eight days with your £400).
The story is worse in Oxford Street, where an average month’s room rent is £1,850 (meaning you could only afford a room for five days here for the Monopoly price of £300).
Even the ‘joke’ areas of Old Kent Road and Whitechapel (£60 a pop on the board) are no longer a laughing matter. On average a room in Old Kent Road costs £815 a month (with your £60 you could stay there for two days before being turfed out), and £950 a month in Whitechapel Road.
Here’s the board: what can you afford? Us neither.
