It's not easy to do Christmas shopping for the BlackBerry geek who already owns every BlackBerry (and accessory and app) and electronic gadget he wants. I'm not sure how she did it (she wouldn't tell me, but I'm assuming she found this on ebay), but Miss CrackBerry came through big time this year with a BlackBerry gift I had no idea even existed - BlackBerry Monopoly!
When I talk about BlackBerry games, I normally mean it in the form of an app you install on your device, but that's not what you're looking at here. This is straight up Monopoly the board game, done BlackBerry style! There are BlackBerry phones for tokens (gotta love that BlackBerry 7210!), all sorts of different BlackBerry markets for properties, and the Innovation and Connectivity cards are just brilliant (WES fees due - pay $50!). Based on what some of the cards say, I'm guessing this was more of a RIM employee/partner corporate gift than ever meant to be seen by consumers, but damn, I think they should release this one for real! There are lots more photos below, so check them out.
So that's the coolest gadget-related gift I got for Christmas this year. What was yours? Sound off in the comments!
