You can always tell that the times are a-changin' when old board games are updated and modernized. Monopoly, which has seen its share of versions with university and movie-themed boards (you can even purchase a Spongebob Squarepants game), is being updated yet again - this time to reflect modern America and its landmarks. Go here to vote for your favorite landmark from 22 cities.

I don't think the game will be complete without spots for this place and this place. Yes, I have indeed been to both places, and let me tell you - they are worth the trip!

Go here for fun facts about the game loved by capitalists and real estate barons everywhere.

What's your favorite playing piece? I've always been partial to the wheelbarrow, but there's one piece that I would certainly never pick: the thimble.


  1. Yes, Wall Drug! I love it!

  2. Isn't it, though? I haven't been there since I was, like, 10 years old, and I still remember it fondly. I plan to take The Wife, The Sweet and The Cute there one day.
