The old game I played when I was a kid used paper money. The new game comes with cards and an “electronic banking unit”.
I am not a fan of the new Monopoly though, for the following reasons:
- It is pricey.
- Transaction with the cards is pretty slow, which in turn slows down the game.
- The players do not know how much value their cards have unless they are read by the electronic banking unit.
- The cards look identical save for their colors.
- The electronic banking unit is fragile.
On top of these, the kids who play the new Monopoly game probably will never understand that “cash is king” and may become slaves of credit card.
