Hooray!: Round Board Monopoly Coming Soon

Monopoly
, everybody's favorite game before the advent of video game consoles, will now be available in a round model to celebrate the game's 75th anniversary. Because circles, as you may know, are the perfect shape. Which is why boobs are kind of round. True story (I'm gonna need a grant to prove it though).

But it's not just a random move to give die-hard fans a reason to buy yet another version, it turns out one of the first concepts for the board game was circular according to Hasbro.


Not to be out done by the latest video games, however, the Monopoly board will do away with cash and the chance to raid the bank when no-one is looking. Players instead will be issued with a chip and pin credit card and a central console that plays banker.

"Not to be out done by the latest video games..." Really? I'm pretty sure the latest video games aren't outdone by a calculator in the middle of a Monopoly board. Just sayin', I had a TI-83 in highschool. Drug Lord FTW!

Hit the jump for a couple more shots.
