Does your Monopoly banker sometimes forget how to count?


For all the people who enjoy Monopoly, but suspect that your banker sometimes cheats, Hasbro’s newest edition, Monopoly Ultimate Banking is coming to the rescue. It will have an ATM that tracks each financial transaction in the game. Playing the game is as before, but each player has a debit card. All money transactions are scanned on the card reader, which tracks each property and giveth or taketh away as the dice have declared. The Ultimate Banking Monopoly from Hasbro is set to hit shelves in the fall for $25.

    Convenient, but I thought Monopoly was a good game for kids because it promoted skills like counting. :-/

      Also, I find a lot of games I play in tend to have a lot of house rules, which this would make impossible.

    I understand that there is a Bitcoin version in the works. At the end, you get a court order to have Apple decrypt the record to figure out who won the game.
