Monopoly Innovates

Monopoly is now a cashless society. Which is nice, because the banker always used to cheat:

Monopoly board game players can now pay for properties with debit cards. Game makers Parker have phased out the standard multi-coloured cash in a new version. Players will instead use a Visa mock debit card to keep track of how much they win or lose. It is inserted into an electronic machine where the banker taps in cardholders' earnings and payments. Parker said replacing of cash with plastic showed the game was moving with the times. Spokesman Chris Weatherhead said: "The new electronic Monopoly reflects the changing nature of society and the advancement of technology."

Hat tip, MR.


  • Does that mean they got rid of the railroads, too? Replace them with Starbucks franchises, maybe?
