Yahoo! says that Hasbro is updating Monopoly. As if the many special editions weren’t enough to entice you, perhaps a round board will. It’s understandable that Hasbro needs to keep up with the Nintendos and PS3s to keep selling board games, but man, stop messing with my childhood.
The new Monopoly ditches money and plays “popular” songs — another assurance that you’ll need to update in a few years. Also, instead of getting $200 for passing go, you get $2 million. With today’s economy, wouldn’t it make more sense to have that income go down?
If your old set is missing the wheelbarrow, boot or other pieces, Monopoly: Revolution Edition will be out this fall.
