**** It represents business a opportunity for that location. Your Icon is the industry you represent and when you land on a space you want to move your business in, but due to Monopolies by an owner, they force you to sell out, and as the value of property rises due to development, the amount you need to spend to try to muscle in raises as well. Landing on utilities affects everyone in the area since the power producton and water are shared by all the locations, and are needed for your business infrastructure and can be gouged if someone else holds the monopoly. Also you need real-roads to move your goods efficiently (for the time period) so people that control the rail-roads also kick you in the nuts.

** For that matter, where are you sleeping when you land on the Luxury\Income Tax spaces? Let alone that you have to go exactly as far as you can (dictated by the dice) instead of deciding to stop early for the "day" to avoid having to stop on a rival's property. Even by game standards, it's pretty abstract.

* In relation to the above, would that mean that landing on any owned property forces you to stay there and pay for all the rooms, whether anyone lives in them or not? And how do you make one pay the rent for a street?
