No desaturation or major editing - I took a greyscale scan of the board, cut out the area around Mayfair, and laid it over the normal board.

Thanks all for your comments during the challenge.
As mentioned in the photographer's comments, there was no desaturation done on this shot - the black and white around the outside of the magnifying glass is actually black and white - or more to the point, a grayscale scan of the monopoly board and the chance cards. See here for one of the setup shots.
In answer to some of the questions/comments posed:
Where is this game from? Monopoly!
Why am I looking through a mag glass? Why not? Just a way of highlighting the Mayfair property.
How did I deal with the color/desaturate etc? See above!
Should not have been validated. Well, it was, so there!
Bit of odd striping behind the glass. Yeah, I noticed that afterwards as well. Not sure what it is, may have been a fingerprint on the magnifying glass. I forgot to try running the shot through NeatImage - when I did, it removed this striping. Ah well.

Thanks again all.

There were lots of Monopoly pictures in this challenge but I think this is one of the very best.

I'm not sure I get it. Why am I looking through a mag lens?

Nice work, good thinking to have the magnifying glass, pulls the composition together, focuses our attention. How did you deal with the color? Bit of odd striping on the board behind the glass. 8

Technical: Fits the challenge. Exposure composition focus lighting all very well done

Personal: Much more creative presentation than other shots of the same subject in the challenge. Thank you for the effort!

Great colors, I like the detail, good use of the Monopoly board.

I like the idea. The multi-directional shadows and varying colors of the squares are a bit distracting.

Monopoly was a common play on this theme, but your's is not of the ordinary ilk. I like it.

Great.

Yeah that rent hurts, how did you de-saturate only the area outside the magnifying glass?
