The newest version of the beloved game played on a thousand family vacations is going to have a very 21st century spin. Players who remember the paper cash and comforting primary colors of the beloved former Monopoly game are in for a surprise – when the game releases a new edition this fall, cash and the bank will be replaced by ATMs and debit cards.

Snatches of popular songs will play after various game actions, and prices (and income!) have been adjusted for inflation – players now receive $2 million for passing Go instead of a paltry $200.

Despite slick new clothes, the game will still use the familiar streets and boulevards of Atlantic City – and you can bet that Park Place and Boardwalk will still be hot properties.

What familiar board game do you think should get a slick, modern update?
