Monopoly Gets Rid of the Jail!
We have no attention span right now. We want everything quickly, right now, when we want it.
And that means long leisurely board games like Monopoly have decided to change with the times and come out with fast, turbo, express versions of themselves.
Hasbro has decided to take the jail out of Monopoly to speed up the game, since sitting in jail causes one to lose turns and wait to play. What's Monopoly without the jail?! It is a game that can drag on for quite awhile - that is if you play according to the rules and don't cheat your way through it. Yahoo News says you can work your way through the new game in 30 minutes.
Monopoly isn't the only game changing with the times. Boggle, the Rubik's Cube, and Scrabble have also developed special quick versions.
The internet has ruined us! We can get anything we want with a few searches, and we've learned to condense our thoughts into 140 characters or less. We live in an on-demand world, and we have no time to just sit around and lazily play board games to pass the time. We can play many of those online too.
Save your old versions of Monopoly! They may be dinosaurs soon.
