I hope all of you guys realize that only old fogies complain about updating old trends.

I actually agree with that... but this is different. This new Monopoly isn't "better." It just has more bling.

What did Luxury Tax turn into? Bling tax? Spinner tax? Shiny gold teeth tax?

Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

No, it's no longer a tax; it's "drug deal."

The horse for me ;-D

This new game is retarded. Fenway as the 2nd best property in the nation? What a total joke.

And $4M for Times Square? They made everything cost more, but its still not realistic.

Nothing like sittin down with an Arch Deluxe and a can of New Coke to play a game of updated Monopoly.

The thing is that I don't know if they really intend for it to compete with the older version, or if they really know it's going to be a limited time thing anyway like with all their other "anniversary" editions and whatnot. Or kinda like when your favorite cereal comes out with new styles - how long are Yogurt Burst Cheerios really going to be around.

My guess is that their sales have steadily dropped every year thanks to the times changing. Hard to keep an MTV attention span with a game nicknamed Monotony. Regardless, all this buzz over the new version probably results in higher sales for the old version too which makes it a can't-lose campaign.

And real players use the shoe.

I think the idea is that parents will buy this "new" version for their kids for the holiday season. That and Tickle Me Psycho.
