And the new Monopoly token is… a cat!

Yup, I spoiled it for you right there in the headline. The stupid little Depression-era iron is out and in its place is a cat. Of course it’s a cat, because the internet voted on it and it’s always cats. The other choices were a diamond ring, a robot, a helicopter or a guitar.

Hasbro is letting Facebook users vote for a new Monopoly token

Hasbro is going to be retiring one of their iconic tokens from Monopoly, but they won’t say which one. However, they are letting Facebook users choose the next token. Whether it be a cat, a helicopter, a robot, a guitar or a diamond ring, you have the say. Clearly, the mustachioed robot is the only real choice. GO VOTE.

Oh, and there’s going to be a Street Fighter version of Monopoly. Because that fucking makes sense.

Okay Hasbro, we fucking get it. You’re not ever ever ever going to stop making different versions of Monopoly until you’ve made one Monopoly game variant to appeal to every single person on the planet. It’s a strategy of some sort and you’re sticking to it. But Street Fighter Monopoly?

Foursquareopoly turns Foursquare into a real life game of Monopoly

I’ll be honest… a month ago, I wouldn’t have given two shits about this, but a few weeks ago, me and several co-workers all signed up for Foursquare at the same time and despite its utter pointlessness, it’s also surprisingly fun. But the fun has been in the competition, to see who amongst us can get the most points in a week, get various badges and compete for mayorships. 

Foursquaropoly is a mobile gaming app that combines the Foursquare API with the gameplay of the Monopoly board game (see a video demo). Players can buy and sell Foursquare check-in venues, and collect rent based on the number of check-ins at each property. The app is currently in development, with no release date set.

There’s already been a countless number of pretty pointless versions of Monopoly, and now Hasbro’s introducing “Monopoly Live”, a $50 version of the board game with an all-seeing, all-knowing tower in the middle of the board that watches each player, determines whose move it is, determines the cost of any rent or the price of a deed, rolls the dice and gives a sloppy robot hand job to the winner.
