Extreme Makeover!

On her 75th anniversary Monopoly gets a makeover! Don't get too excited.. It is a ridiculous one.. They dumped the classic square board,, the metal tokens and the paper money and a banker.. And replaced them with a round shape,, plastic tokens and debit cards and an ATM..

I am saving my classic Monopoly for my future children..

Are you going to buy this new edition?

  1. Definitely NO...the feeling of holding fake money itself was the pleasure of this game...counting money and throwing it in the air like billionaires was the maximum pleasure for me

  3. Me too!!!

    I would NOT buy that. There are some icons that are best left untouched.

  4. Oh please. What a waste. And teachers and bankers complain that people don't understand money NOW. When you reduce it to tokens and an ATM, you're even more disconnected from money and how much you have and where it's going. Not a good change for such a revered cultural icon like Monopoly.

  5. NO .... I'm not going to buy it

    What is Monopoly without fighting on who is going to be the banker, without touching the fake money in ur hand and arranging the money in front of u

    I still have my classic Monopoly too :D
