Cell Phone Passes Go, Collects $2M

Hasbro released Monopoly: Here and Now last week, a new version of the classic board game. Along with other upgrades, the old gamepieces (thimble, iron, leprachaun shoe, etc.) have been replaced with more contemporary items. According to Time Magazine, "You can now travel the board as a Motorola cell phone, a bag of McDonald's fries, a cup of Starbucks coffee, a Toyota Prius, or a New Balance sneaker."

Ummmmmmm, I'm only playing if we can pretend it's a Starbucks triple shot skim latte.
