Think it used to be purple but they updated the design of the board and now it's more of a blue colour.

This makes sense to me. as that colour above is not blue thats purple! 🤔

We did a friends quiz last night and one question was very controversial. It was what colour is mayfair on a monopoly board. I and a few others put purple but the quiz master said it was dark blue!

How the hell is this dark blue? What colour is everyone seeing?

Not terribly ironic, actually, when you think about it.  Starbucks and one or two of other roasters/sellers actually started the coffee culture in Seattle.  When I moved to Seattle in '84 they had at most a handful of stores and very much had the feel of a small, independent coffee shop.  The coffee was good and flavorful.   Even the McStarbucks of today is miles ahead of what you would get pretty much anywhere in the US outside of San Francisco, Seattle and small pockets of some big cities in the in the mid-'80's.

Also, Starbucks make a banging hot chocolate.

Had one yesterday :)

Mayfair is dark blue. Politically, and on the Monopoly board.

Good to see everyone confident their screens and devices have excellent and accurate colour rendition of a photo taken on someone else’s well set up up digital device.

Look at you and your nice tablet with a orange and purple avatar.

I wasn't talking about the screenshots. I was talking about the many physical Monopoly sets I've seen over the years.

It wasn’t aimed at any one post.

Posting a picture and asking for opinions on colour is problematic. I say this as someone that has seen £12,000 of bespoke hand painted wallpaper binned by a Client who bought it over an internet ‘sample viewing’.

Bristol, 2018, a private bank. One of the funniest experiences of my life. Client literally tore the place up in a mouth frothing rage that included some actual jumping up and down and the kicking of a skip.

Client graciously allowed his design team to select the replacement colour. We chose from actual physical samples, because we’re old school and boring.

On a tangent, if you have kids or other family members who want to play Monopoly, but you absolutely hate the idea because you recognise that it is in fact the board game with the worst game dynamics and game-playing experience that has ever been created, then from personal experience I would recommend the Monopoly Deal card game. Each hand takes 10-15 minutes, it's simple to learn and fairly fun to play, and it is possible to come from behind and win, all of which is not true of the board game.

EDIT: Incidentally, Mayfair is dark blue in it 😉

Just spent an hour reading news websites and twitter. The world is a thoroughly depressing and selfish place nowadays.

Pretty mundane topic, but thoughts on ceiling fans?

I can't justify an air con unit for the few hot nights a year we have, but next door now have a screaming little shit that wakes me up if I have the window open, so I'm thinking of installing one in the bedroom, if they're actually effective and not too noisy.

Maybe just a stand alone fan? Only need it about 10 days a year and can then stick it back in the garage/loft/shed.

I sleep with a stand alone fan every night of the year. It helps me sleep, blocking out all noises. The constant hum of it is very helpful. And, also, when I'm on nights, means I can sleep during the day without opening the windows so my 3 'screaming little shits' 🙄 don't wake me up.

Could possibly combine it with a timer plug so it goes off after couple of hours to save electricity during the night.

I could, but I've done it for years now and it scares me the thought of waking up without it.

We had a ceiling fan in the bedroom of an old house and it was nice during the hot days. Only downside is the fact lots of dust gathers on top of the blades so if you use it for the first time after about 9 months without cleaning it there will be a dust storm all over the bed.
