A two hundred dollar purchase
With a twenty-five dollar rent,
Until you have all four of us,
Then an even return you'll get.

One is next to Illinois,
And one borders Virginia.
One has no state name next to it,
The fourth's near Pennsylvania

What are we?





What Next?

Nice teaser, apart from being obviously US-centric. The answer should really say "...from the US version of Monopoly"

Fun teaser! I agree with cooltigerr1, the title rocks!

loved it...took me a minute, but I did get it.

What do the foreign versions use in place of the RR's?

I never thought about the fact that a non-U.S. version of Monopoly would have different names for the spaces on Monopoly.....I'll remember that for future teasers (those teasers probably won't center around Monopoly, though!)

The english versions has the following railway stations:-
Fenchurch St
Marylebone
Kings Cross
Liverpool St

I knew the answer as the cost and the rent are the same

I haven't played Momopoly in years, so that would have been the last thing I thought of. I was thinking of things like Manhattan Island, but that didn't cost $200 now that I rethink it. Good teaser.

Very nice. I didn't get it and the clue didn't help at all.

Clever one. Knew it was Monopoly immediately, but eliminated a lot of properties before I remembered railroads.

That was a great one. I really liked it alot. I hate playing monopoly because I always get beaten. This time I got one right.

breathesunshineAus*
Aug 03, 2007

Hey I don't like monopoly either, probably because my older brother always beat me at it when we were kids! Fun one!
catlver713Aus*
Aug 03, 2007

that's really clever
wordmama*
Aug 03, 2007

I'm usually awful at riddles, but this one I got at the 2nd read-through--no hint, never even looked at the answer!!!

For people who complain 'too easy', I, for one, happen to enjoy getting one once in a while!!
jabdrAus*
Aug 04, 2007

Amen, wordmama

Thank you, jabdr!!

That was really, really good! One of the best I've seen. I couldn't figure it out until I saw the hint, coupled with the title. Keep 'em coming!

I love the title
doeheadAus*

Since this is nothing but an every two to three year repeat program, it is time to say goodbye.

Very nice. I picked it was Monopoly straight away, but no idea about US towns.
auntiesisAus*
Aug 04, 2010

Good-bye, Doehead. I didn't get this one the first time, and I didn't get it this time either. My memory is so bad I would probably not get it if it were re-run tomorrow.
Babe*
Aug 03, 2013

I have never played Monopoly so it never occured to me. I just flat gave up.
jaycr*us*
Aug 03, 2013

Played the game, missed the answer, oh well. Nice teaser!
eighsseAus*
Aug 03, 2013

Easy! But a good one I got it as soon as it said "Until you have all four of us."
