Cutting Corners

Hasbro is cutting the corners off of it's game board this year. The 75th anniversary edition of an American icon, Monopoly, will be round! The new game will have no cash, debit cards have replaced the little paper bills. I loved that money, our children used to play "bank" for hours on end with it. I'm sad, too, that the thimble has been replaced by a stand-up plastic playing piece, is nothing sacred? Could this be a repeat of the "new" Coke, will the public reject the change? I wonder; time will tell. It looks like the little houses remain the same, I see "Go" and I found "Jail", but what's the "Rocket Zone?" Hmmm... I just don't know how I feel about going in circles to get to Park Place.
Life is Good!

What is that thing in the middle?

I have my grandfather's copy of Monopoly and mine. I suppose I should get this newer version too? Just so I can say, "Look! I have 3 different versions of the same game."

Always someone trying to mess up something that works fine!

I don't like to think of kiddos using the debit/credit card...teaches the wrong thing, I think. I liked the pink money the best, LOL!

Thank goodness I have an intact square version on hand.

Add me to the list of those who love the paper money . . . I will not be buying this "new and improved" version!
