Monopoly is going 21st century.
The new version from Hasbro Games is called Monopoly City Streets, and it includes an online competition. The game gives each player $3 million and allows them to purchase any street on Google Maps. Washington, D.C.â€™s Pennsylvania Avenue starts at $2 million.
Players also can buy skyscrapers, wind farms, stadiums, and counter their opponents development efforts by buying hazards like prisons, sewage plants, and trash dumps. They earn money from rentsâ€”a skyscraper pays $100 million daily.
Thereâ€™s no such thing as foreclosure; all transactions are done in cash. And thereâ€™s no free parking.

Monopoly was one of Troy Richardson’s favorite games growing up, it’s no wonder he went into Real Estate Sales in the Bennington VT Real Estate market!
