Want To Put That Hotel On Your Debit Card?

A British version of Monopoly was released this week using a Visa-imprinted debit card instead of the traditional play money. Players type the amount owed into a palm-sized scanner, then swipe their debit cards. A spokesman says, “We started looking at what Monopoly would look like if we designed it today. We noticed consumers are using debit cards, carrying around cash a lot less.” Not to mention that back when the game was invented making money from commercial tie-ins with credit card companies wasn’t possible. The next American version could follow suit, with other changes including having condos for sale instead of houses, a moving sidewalk instead of Boardwalk, and Mr. Moneybags morphing into Bill Gates.
