So, really the only place one can find this game is on eBay ?

Actually I'm impressed Clueboy12, 4 years to wait for something must of been worth it.

To be quite honest... I would spend the 1,000 or so dollars to have a Franklin Mint. Heck, there is a brand new one being sold on eBay right now for $1,500, and that really wouldn't stop me. I think the point, though, is that I just don't like it. I love the cards, peices and moving squares. But the rooms suck! Especially the Hall. The decorations in there look like something a 1st year art student can draw... and it looks like they ran out of color. I think they should have really fleshed out the rooms and painted them in a realistic rather than contemporary style.

And it would be really great if Hasbro came out with a cheaper version of the game. It could have regular metal furniture and an oak finish instead of the hardwood. I don't see a version like that running for more than $150. And it might be more worth it, since gold is such a fragile metal...

That would be a fun project. And I am the really artsy type, so I'm sure I'd endjoy it a ton. Maybe I'll attempt it next summer, when I have 4 months to work on it.
