Monopoly- we all know how to play this game, and some of the fun is having all of that cash, and buying stuff with it.  But, now there is a new Monopoly game being introduced that will be cashless.  Instead players will be able to use a controlled AI banker... and one really good thing... the banker won't cheat!

The latest edition replaces the designated banker with an intelligent, voice-activated top hat that handles all of the game’s financial transactions, giving players an outlet for their frustrations, without hurting anyone’s feelings.

Basically the top hat will react like Siri, or Alexa and Google assistant and will require use of a smart phone or smart speaker.  This might limit some access to older players, or the very young who don't yet have these devices.

But on the positive side, Hasbro, the maker of the game, has included it's own smart assistant, so no one will need to use Wi-Fi to play the game.

Oh, and you can pre-order through Amazon if you are really interested.
