Monopoly now has an all-knowing tower in the center of the board, that keeps tracks of moves, money and property. That way players don’t have to do all that annoying thinking. Some might think this takes the fun out of the game but I think it is perfect for our times. Better to teach our children to accept the will of our corporate/government overlords.
The new game does seem ripe for hacking. Perhaps someone could push it to its logical conclusions: non-negotiable bank transaction fees, forced pat-down for passing Go, or maybe that tower should incorporate TSA body-scan technology. Of course the Jail space seems redundant at this point.
