NY Times says the familiar tokens from the Monopol…

NY Times says the familiar tokens from the Monopoly board game are getting a modern — and, some might say, mercenary — makeover. An updated edition of the game will include tokens that are styled after name-brand products: a Toyota Prius hybrid car, an order of McDonald’s French fries, a New Balance running shoe, a cup of Starbucks coffee or a Motorola Razr cellphone. However, the 11 tokens in the classic version — including the battleship, cannon, iron, shoe, thimble and top hat — will remain unchanged. I used to play Monopoly as a kid, but did not like it very much because I felt it was all about the money, which is not one of my favourite things in life.

  1. Looks like a cool place, was wondering if you can post some images of the restaurant itself.

    Haha, Americans are just so out of it. They’re trying to turn every single thing into a method of promoting their tasteless consumerism culture.

    I always enjoyed Monoploy, because I used to always cheat like hell while playing the game, yet I always ended borrowing money and put all of my property on mortgage.

    Question: Is my blog banned in Saudi?
