Monopoly Takes A Chance On Plastic

Sky News: Monopoly Takes A Chance On Plastic: "Mayfair? Put It On The Card
"Monopoly board game players can now pay for properties with debit cards.Game makers Parker have phased out the standard multi-coloured cash in a new version.Players will instead use a Visa mock debit card to keep track of how much they win or lose."

This would be the UK version but it is scary! How will people teach money counting without Monopoly? Ok ok...but still. HMPH.

Also, talk about a product placement bonanza for Visa!
