Putting the NO in Monopoly

    Here's your 21st century version of the game of Monopoly.

    No money. It's all ATMs and debit cards.

    You get $2 million for passing Go.

    The tokens you use to move around the board play snippets of popular songs.

    It's called Monopoly: Revolution.

    It should be called Monopoly: FAIL.

    Part of the appeal for me as I teach one of my kids is how to make change. Not having cash isn't going to help.

    The cash register tells them how to do that!!

    A few months ago, bought something for $17.25

    Gave the cashier a twenty, a toonie and a quarter so I could get a five dollar bill back. (Trust me, in Canada, this is important; otherwise you take a pound/half a kilo of change out of your pocket and you've got $15.00)

    She looked at me like I had asked her to prove the Theory of Relativity.

    You lost me after you said you're taking a half-kilo of something out of your pocket.

    Credit card companies just wet their pants and know exactly why.

    The circular board is all kinds of awful.

    The debit-card banking system seems neat until you realize it kills house rules. Nobody ever plays Monopoly according to the actual rules, do they?

    Damn metric system. It's why a Quarter Pounder in France is called Royale with cheese. :)

    You're funny too, JJ. Just slightly (and only slightly) less debonair. :D
