  3. Pass Go, Collect Real Money in Monopoly Boxes in France for the Game’s Anniversary

    Well, Euros always kind of looked like Monopoly money anyway.

    In France, 80 boxes of Monopoly will ship with real money in addition to the fake money needed to actually play the game. It's nice of them to still include the game money, but I don't think anyone would mind if they had to go buy a second box of Monopoly to both play the game and spend their free cash.

  7. How Much is Monopoly Money Actually Worth?

    Fun with numbers! Fun with numbers! Fun with numbers!

    We tend to use the term "Monopoly Money" to imply something is worthless, but is it really? Does Monopoly money have any real value? Well, no, obviously. It's paper money from a board game, but it's still a thing people buy, so it has to be worth something, right? Let's figure out the exchange rate of dollars to Monopoly money. For reasons.

  10. This Homemade Fallout Monopoly Board’s Clearly the Best Birthday Present

    The only way you can make Monopoly an enjoyable game is to add zombies, some dystopian sci-fi, or possibly the Powerpuff Girls, but you know what else might work? The post-apocalyptic, alternate history trappings of the Fallout video game series. Which is exactly what someone on Reddit totally did for their wife's birthday.

  11. Stay in the House, Carl: The Walking Dead Monopoly and Risk Coming Soon

    We as consumers like to think that we get what we ask for -- like it's the "demand" part of supply and demand -- but sometimes maybe we shouldn't. Apparently, we asked for The Walking Dead versions of both Risk and Monopoly, because that's what USAopoly and Skybound are sending our way.

  13. Get Ready to Flip the Board: Monopoly Announces New Token Lineup

    When Hasbro announced that it would hold a vote to replace one of Monopoly's tokens with a new one, I made some suggestions for better pieces. It looks like they ignored my brilliant suggestion of putting a jet pack in the game, because today they've announced the results of their election. We have the results, and Hasbro's over-the-top animations announcing those results after the jump.

  14. 8 Pieces That Hasbro Should Add to Monopoly That Are Better Than What They’re Suggesting

    One of the most iconic things about the board game Monopoly is the pieces. Some people (me) even refuse to play if their favorite piece (top hat) is taken by another player, but there's about to be a shakeup in the roster. Hasbro is holding a vote for a new piece, but they're also dumping the existing piece that gets the least support from fans. Things aren't looking good for you, wheelbarrow, but the real tragedy of this story is that the pieces Hasbro is offering up as replacements are lame, so we've come up with some better suggestions.

  16. WordPress Now Takes Bitcoin, Still Won’t Accept Monopoly Money

    Bitcoin has had its ups and downs. The entirely digital currency has seen high-profile thefts, potential debit cards, and even botnets. Even so, the legitimacy of Bitcoin is often questioned, and its detractors often compare it Monopoly money: Valuable within the game, but worthless otherwise. Looks like the naysayers might have been wrong. WordPress has begun accepting Bitcoins, and Monopoly money is still only Monopoly money.

  18. Alan Turing Has an Official Monopoly Board. Here are Some of Our Other Favorites

    Godfather of the computer age, Alan Turing, will be getting his face on some currency -- just not, y'know, real money. Turing's face will grace each and every bank note in the newly announced Monopoly: Alan Turing Edition. Based on a design that Turing played with friend Max Newman, the game, released by Bletchley Park Code Centre, where Turing did the codebreaking work that was instrumental to an Allied victory in WWII, is designed to teach players facts about Turing's life. Believe it or not, this Google-funded endeavor is just the latest of hundreds of bizarrely branded takes on Monopoly that are things that exist in the real world. You can get a look at some of out other favorites after the jump.

  20. Street Fighter is Coming to a Monopoly Near You

    The Monopoly mashup trend continues. When we last left out board game hero, someone made a Skyrim version of the classic game, complete with Skyrim coin Monopoly money. This time around, we have an officially licensed Street Fighter version of Monopoly set for release. Along with the usual themed spaces that allow players to further the evil landlord style play of Monopoly, the famed pieces will be Street Fighter characters -- something a little more visually interesting than a thimble.
