You missed the source:
blog.box.net/?p=136 (April 15th, 2008)
Box.net also offers a higher-resolution image.

Well, i might print it over a card board and make this baby real!!
It's a great idea, and i'm very proud of who made it!

I just gotta think about the perfect cards.

Ideas are more than welcome :)

I think it would be interesting to have a Search Engine Optimization version of this game. Perhaps each field is a domain name – starting from the lousy ones, like reallyLongDomain1923092.info to the better ones, like hello.com – and instead of houses you add PageRank to each domain. I could imagine unlucky special cards like "Due to keyword stuffing, you lose all your PageRank on your longest domain...."
