Monopoly heresy

According to Pocket Lint, a 75th anniversary edition of Monopoly is soon to be released. The part that I find most surprising is the game will be unrecognizable. The board will be round!

You see no cash in the photo because there isn’t any. Each player gets a credit card and all transactions are made through the electronic banker shown at the centre of the board. I can deal with no cash, but the change in the board is a bit much for me.

I’m uncertain if this new edition will replace the old one, or if it’s just a limited edition released for the game’s 75th anniversary. If it’s the former, I’ll want to get a new copy of the current edition before it’s replaced!
