Oi Banker!

All change in Hasbro's Monopoly as instead of divvying up paper £500, £100s and those crappy little yellow £1s, you'll stick your card into the ATM machine in order to add or subtract from your total.

By replacing the cash in Monopoly with in effect a Visa debit card in all future editions of Monopoly, Hasbro puts an end to almost a century of "Monopoly money" jokes and wasted minutes waiting for your sister to dole out £50 because she's the "chairman of the board". Shame as I used to enjoy ending stalemate games by holding up the bank and throwing its content in the air.

Design your own Monopoly Board
