Monopoly Gets a Makeover – Now Pass Go and Collect $2 Million Dollars

In honor of the 75th anniversary of the classic board game, Hasbro has finally released a new design for Monopoly. Set to debut in stores in the Fall, “Monopoly: Revolution Edition” takes a new “spin” on the traditional square board-game by making it circular. Instead of using paper money and a banker, users get to play with debit cards and an ATM, also there are clear plastic representations of the classic tokens (bye-bye, little boot!), and clips of popular songs (like Rihanna’s “Umbrella,” Daniel Powter’s “Bad Day,” and Beyonce’s “Crazy in Love”) that play after certain actions.

But perhaps, the most exciting aspect of this updated version of Monopoly, is the fact that players can collect $2 million dollars for passing “Go” instead of just $200! Hey, it’s about time Monopoly caught up with inflation.

But one of the most controversial aspect from all of these new changes to the game probably stems from the fact that since money is stored on debit cards, players will no longer be able to cheat by stealing money from the bank when no one is looking!
