Say it ain’t so…a credit card version of Monopoly?!

Current events, Personal finance

News broke a couple of days ago that Hasbro’s introduced in the UK and plans to roll out the same version next year to the US and Canada.

Ok, I understand that this is an attempt by those fine folks in marketing to capture a new audience with an “updated” version of the game…but am I already becoming an old fogey at my age by thinking this is, as the article says, “pop-cultural heresy”? Where’s the fun in sliding plastic cards in a little machine? Naw, you need the visceral joy of exchanging large sums of colorful bills back and forth between players and the banker to really “get” the game, right? Otherwise, why not just play a computer game version?
