New Age of Board Games //

Monopoly has been a staple and standard for board games, being patented in 1935. The game has taken on different themes (from Seinfeld, to Transformers, to The Beatles) but stayed relatively the same. It finally took its 75th anniversary to push for change.

Now, a new design and updated look for Monopoly will hit retailers' shelves in the fall of 2010. The game is up to date with more "here and now" pricing, sound effects, and electronic banking. The concept remains the same, and no changes in the rules were made. Just a modernization of a classic game.

I can only assume for perhaps more board games to take on a more modern look.

till later.
