American icon is changing

April 25, 2006

I’m not 100% sure how I feel about this.  Monopoly is a classic game, and now they’re going to change the board?  I assume Boardwalk and Park Place will stay the same … right?!?  On the other hand, making the game relevent to todays kids makes sense.

I do agree with replacing the railroads with airports.  I wonder what you get once you get Logan, Kennedy, O’Hare, and LAX … other than a lot of headaches!  🙂

Monopoly was introduced in 1935 and now, in 2006 is getting ‘modern’. The board will be updated with the names of landmarks, streets and neighborhoods from 22 cities rather than Atlantic City landmarks and streets. The railroads will be replaced with airport names as well.
