I’ve just heard that the makers of Monopoly are bringing out a plastic (credit card) version with no cash. Fortunately a cash version will still be available to buy. That’s a relief. Monopoly without cash is unthinkable! It just wouldn’t be the same! Like a lot of British children, I grew up playing Monopoly and Cluedo. One of the highlights of playing Monopoly as kids, was organising who was going to be the banker and count out the money. Using plastic just wouldn’t be the same! In addition the makers of Monopoly will be increasing the property prices, changing some of the London addresses and updating some of the playing pieces in the new version. Thank goodness the “Go to Jail” element of the game will remain the same!
