So much for Monopoly money

MonopolyHave you heard the latest in Visa’s rush to get in front of kids via product/name placement?  How about doing away with the cash in the Monopoly game and replacing it with an electronic banking system?  That is the case in the latest version of the game being distributed in the United Kingdom.  The new card, which resembles a debit card, is inserted into a small plastic reader/writer that can display and update the balance on the card. Traditional money is gone altogether, though purists can still purchase the original version.

Look at the bright side, now you don’t have to worry about the honesty of the banker!

You can always print your own Monopoly money if need be, and it would make great wrapping paper if you like.
