        LAS VEGAS— A lucky swap and some eager building propelled a 19-year-old Norwegian student to the top of board game fame and sent three would-be tycoons to the poor house at the Monopoly World Championship in Las Vegas.

        Bjorn Halvard Knappskog, who graduated this year from the Oslo Private Gymnasium school, captured the title on Thursday when the battleship token of 25-year-old Geoff Christopher of New Zealand landed consecutively on Pacific Avenue and North Carolina Avenue, and he couldn't afford the combined $1,600 rent.

        "(I'm) the most surprised you could ever be," Knappskog told The Associated Press. "I think this was a really good final. It was the best game I played in the whole tournament."

        Knappskog won $20,580 in real money for the title _ the total amount in the bank of a standard Monopoly game. The other finalists won nothing beyond the trip that brought each of the 41 competitors to the Caesars Palace hotel-casino on the Las Vegas Strip to represent their home countries as national champions.

        Hiya Ton,

        I love monopoly!! Have played countless hours at the kitchen table. I always wante the 4 railroads.......the orange property and the light blue property!!

        We always stashed any payouts to the bank under free parking. Did anyone else ever do that?

        "Today, most of the good people are afraid to be good. They strive to be broadminded and tolerant. It is fashionable to be tolerant but mostly tolerant of evil and this new code has reached the proportions of demanding intolerance of good."

        Lips, we used to make free parking a "Jackpot" you could win if you hit it. My sisters hated that as I seemed to have the best luck doing that!
