Monopoly goes green in latest makeover
Water Works and the Electric Company are SO 1930s.
If you are looking to be a 21st-century mogul, renewable energy is the choice.
At least that’s the case for the board game Monopoly. Hasbro is coming out with its first-ever worldwide version of the board game , and Water Works has been flushed and the Electric Company has been disconnected.
In their place, the game board will feature “Wind Energy” and “Solar Energy.”
“In a nod to the efforts of countries worldwide to increase the effectiveness and availability of renewable energy sources, we decided to feature Solar Energy and Wind Energy on the game board,” Hasbro games executive Phil Jackson said in news release.
Which begs the question: will Boardwalk be made out of renewable bamboo?
