Why Does Hasbro Hate New Jersey?
I feel like a piece of my childhood has died. Hasbro, the makers of Monopoly, have decided not to include Boardwalk in a special edition of the game. Boardwalk was, like, the crown jewel of Monopoly. Every time I played the game, I tried to get Boardwalk and Park Pl. I'd build hotels on those properties. And now they're being removed.
Nevermind that I've never won a game of Monopoly in my life. The point is, I can no longer execute my losing strategy.
What's next? Are they going to replace the dog with a more popular character? Get rid of the iron?
It's going to take some time to get used to this new America.
