No, no, no!!


Beginning this week, the British version of Monopoly will no longer have the traditional multi-colored cash. Monopoly in the UK will be now sold with Visa cards and a scanner!

Yet another once wonderful real-life teaching tool ruined by "modernization." How many of us learned to count money by playing Monopoly? I know I did. My son did. My daughter is.

I'm sure it's only a matter of time before the "improvement" makes its way across the pond to the US. As for us though, we'll keep the old paper money.

You can actually print out paper money on the respective websites (UK, US, etc.) I hope they will keep that feature, at least.
