Though the classic Monopoly board game has been localized for the many communities in which it is played, Parker Brothers are yet to produce a version localized for the Perl community, to the best of my knowledge. This meditation remedies that.

Given the limited number of squares available, the vast number of Perl modules, and the many and various Perl sub-cultures, many different Perl board configurations are possible. Here is my feeble attempt at composing a Perl Monopoly board. How would you do it?
