Monopoly: Klingon Edition

Monopoly.jpg
Monopoly game
In 2011, a Klingon language Version of Monopoly was released. All of the game is in both English and Klingon, so advanced speakers can play it entirely in Klingon. Translations were done by Marc Okrand, who has provided several new words for the game, with the Klingon Language Institute. Due to this fact, the game is considered canon. All the parts of the game are also labeled in pIqaD, so this is the first canon use of pIqaD.

Game set up

The game is quite identical to the standard game, with few differences: instead of streets, there are planets and the four stations/airports are space stations. The money is labeled QaS, literally "troops", so one does not pay with true money, but troops are sent to war to conquer a planet.

"Chance and Community chest" cards are labeled as Honor and Combat cards (see below).

The six player tokens (QujwI' lIw) are a Bird of Prey, a Bat'leth, a captain's chair, a high court gavel, a disruptor and a Dk'tagh.

New words

The new words include names for planets, clarifying meanings of existing words and some all new words.

Trivia

During episode 9 of the 4th season of The Big Bang Theory ("The Boyfriend Complexity"), Sheldon mentions that he prefers "the classics, regular and Klingon" editions of Monopoly.

Errata

  • The "Praxis Energy Facility" is labeled correctly in pIqaD as pIraqSIS HoS waw', but the smaller logo containing the same words, has an l ("ell") instead of I ("eye"), a Q instead of q, and is missing its final apostrophe. So it reads as plraQSIS HoS waw.
  • The same happened to the "Rura Penthe Mines": rura' pente' tlhIlHalmey is written correctly in the standard layout, but the logo is spelled rura pente tIlHalmey.

Back Cover

  • ngaS 'aplo ("contents") is spelled incorrectly as naS aplo
  • Qapla' is missing an apostrophe
