Monopoly Here & Now Electronic Edition, part 2
The standard Monopoly comes with following tokens (movers): thimble, sack of money, iron, hat, battleship, racing car, cannon, shoe, dog, wheelbarrow, and horse and rider.
The Monopoly Here and Now Edition comes with following tokens (movers): London bus, mobile phone, hamburger, skateboard, roller blade, racing car, and an aeroplane.
And the picture you've been waiting for...
Thanks God, unlike the official picture, the Monopoly banker unit and debit cards do NOT carry "Visa" logo.
Another photo of the new Here & Now Electronic Edition, with modern apartments and hotels, and the debit cards.
Other major difference? It's in UK Pounds (£). When you pass Go, you collect £2M (2 million Pounds) instead of $200. Well, the land and building costs have also adjusted with inflection over the last 70 years... The cheapest land Portobello Road Market (was called Old Kent Road) is now £600k (was $60), and the most expensive land The City (was called Mayfair) is now £4M (was $400). Instead of Railways, they are Airports. Utilities? No more Electric Company and Water Works, they are now Telecoms and The Sun (Satellite).
If you are good at math, you should notice all the values are actually stay the same ratio, the new value is simply 10,000 times of the old value, and change the currency from dollar ($) to pound (£).
Anyone want to play Monopoly with me?
