Artist An Te Liu built this real-life Monopoly house in Willowdale, a neighborhood in Toronto. You can’t see it here, but there’s a little metal dog in the backyard and a thimble in the garage.
I salute you, Willowdale, and I hope you’ll consider board game-related redevelopment throughout your neighborhood. Think of it: little pink and blue cars from the Game of Life driving down the roads, kids swimming down at Candy Land’s Chocolate Lake… maybe even a few Hungry Hungry Hippos on standby, in case the town’s extensive marble supply should run loose. All defended, of course, by little grey battleships and X’s, V’s and I’s from Risk.
