Tarry for the Nonce

Advance to Boardwalk

This is almost embarrassing to admit, but when I was little, I used to play Monopoly with myself for hours. I had a very elaborate set of personal rules to emulate the randomness of the real-life decision-making process, i.e., whether or not a person would buy a property.

I learned a lot about money from Monopoly. Today’s Monopoly loners will learn even more:

Monopoly money will be phased out in a new version of the game in a bid to keep up with the times.

Instead players will use mock Visa debit cards to keep track of how much money they are winning or losing . . .

The revamped model will also include several changes, such as an increase in property prices and new fines like paying the congestion charge, to bring it upto date.
