Stargate Board Game

campylobacter: OMFG a Stargate SG-1 board game! Adding this bitch to my Amazon Wish List!

gingasaurus: NO OMG DON'T DO IT. SERIOUSLY, DO NOT. My friend has this game, I just saw it with my own eyes two days ago and it. is. an abomination. It- it has nothing to do with anything, I swear to you. The rules are nigh-incomprehensible and you don't even get to do anything fun like be characters. The cards are written in just-shy-of-being-broken English. It. Is. Awful.

campylobacter: WHAT? Can't be characters? I AM DISAPPOINT. I wanted to be Ba'al. SO BAD.

magnavox_23: I have that game and it is shockingly bad. So much potential, but it's like a SG/Warhmammer crossover with plastic blobs.

campylobacter: Is [there] any way to modify it to counteract the FAIL?

magnavox_23: I'm afraid not. It's a stretch calling itself a board game. :P

campylobacter: Surely there's an SG-1 RPG community somewhere that has a lot of the rules hashed out?

capn_madd_katt: I could probably make a better one. (Hell, I made a Backstreet Boys Monopoly game once XP)

campylobacter: HOLY SHIT that would be schweeeeeet. I'd wanna use action figures as game pieces. ;-p

capn_madd_katt: ...I want to make SG-1 monopoly now... XP

magnavox_23: "Sucked into a black hole, miss 2 turns", "Blow up a sun, progress to Othela"...

magnavox_23: SG-1 Monopoly would be epic! XD

capn_madd_katt: I SHOULD DO THIS!

magnavox_23: DO EET!!!!

capn_madd_katt: "Go to Hadante" XP The railroads would be the members of SG-1... *nods*

magnavox_23: The 'money' could be pieces of Naquadah. :P

magnavox_23: Vala would so cheat at Monopoly, lol!

capn_madd_katt: space stations and supergates instead of houses and hotels :D

campylobacter: OMG, Vala would insist on being the banker!

magnavox_23: And if you land on someone else's 'Planet', you have to pay a fee to use the gate. 3 Planets and you own the entire system.

capn_madd_katt: "$200 for you for passing GO *slips hundred dollar bill under table* $100 for me just because I can..."

magnavox_23: You've won $10 in a cute whumped archaeologist contest...

capn_madd_katt: what would Boardwalk and Park Place be?

campylobacter: Atlantis? Um, McMurdo? I dunno!

capn_madd_katt: SGC and Abydos?

campylobacter : Yes! That makes sense! I'm Googling for a good image of the Monoply board for Mags to manip...

capn_madd_katt : I should find the pics of the BSB monopoly.. it was EPIC...

campylobacter: Monopoly Board auf Deutsch

campylobacter: Deed cards modded for Greekopoly

capn_madd_katt: I'm making a list on 'properties' just to keep track.

campylobacter: Monopoly money

magnavox_23 : The properties could be planets they've visited - Sumeria, Enkara etc...

campylobacter: Yes! And the "naquadah" money should have Goa'uld System Lords on it!

capn_madd_katt: Ba'al is the highest! $500?

magnavox_23: From Ra = 500 weights of Naquadah all the way to Thoth = 1 weight, lol!

campyspornshack: I can well imagine Ba'al, Anubis, Ra, Apophis, Hathor, Nirrti, and Camulus arguing over who's on the $500 bill.

magnavox_23: Dammit! That's how they could have brought down the Goa'uld empire! :P

campylobacter: UGH. Tumblr is being FAIL at posting the transcript of this Gate-opoly convo.

After more Googling, I discovered that some other fans had made a Stargate SG-1 Monopoly board game:
Stargate Monopoly

tracy on August 08, 2007
I've just finished playing a game of Stargate Monopoly with Ames and her friend Louisa.

A friend made four sets at Christmas presents for Amy and three friends. She made it from scratch: the boards, the box, the notes, the cards, the pieces, everything!

Each square on the board is named after a planet, each railway station is a ship (there's the Odyssey, Prometheus, Korelev and Daedalus) and the money has pictures of SG1 and company on them! It is honestly the best thing I've ever seen!

Here's a picture of Amy and Louisa with the set...

I'll take some more pictures at some point as well. This is just stunning!

What a great idea! I have a Star Wars Monopoly game that's been played exactly....never. I'm not sure the pieces have ever been taken out of the plastic.

Maybe you could get a few bucks for Star Wars Monopoly on the secondary market (, especially if the plastic's unopened.

Looks like I could ask at least 95 bucks for mine. I have several SW things that have never been opened.

Dragonfly, sidhalley, and I sat and tried to play that damn game once... it was annoying and confusing, all at the same time.

But I still have it :D

There's gotta be some way to vandalize that Stargate board game for pornographic purposes.

Open Journal

Friend/de-Friend/Ban me = it's all good.

Fandom's more fun when you're an equal-opportunity pervert (multi-shipper). Set porn goggles to maximum!

Mostly Stargate SG-1 with an intermittent chance of SGA & The X-Files.
