There are few activities that can turn the polite and civil discourse of a family gathering into a shouting match faster than a game of Monopoly. 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.
A new version of Monopoly is coming out on July 1st . . . and it’s totally cashless.
All the banking is done electronically . . . by a voice-controlled, talking top hat in the middle of the board.
