Monopoly Electronic Banking

I played it tonight with my wife and a friend. It was pretty cool, everything is in the 100k's to millions. My wife ended up with about 69 million. It was cool, considering we would never run out of money to dish out. I owned the two big ones.

Has anyone else played this yet? What do you think of it?

Huh? What is this? Is it like one of those McDonald's things? I've only played the normal board game version. Never saw a reason to play it on a videogame console since it seemed the same to me.

I don't know, it's always kind of been a tradition at my house that the best cheater is always the best at Monopoly. We don't have the patience to play it the real way, and someone always messes with the dice or takes an extra 100 to make life more interesting. It's just no fun to me when you're not competing with your father for best cheater.

No guys, this is not on a console. It is still a board game, but in stead of money, paper, you have a credit card. the a machine to slide it through when you need to.

Yep, I knew what it was, but I still miss the cheating.

Oh you can still cheat, who ever is the banker controls the machine that takes away money and gives money. So in a way you are God.

Heh, the Monopoly banker is God, eh? Sounds like one hell of a job.

If only Monopoly didn't take hours.. Sometimes I am in the mood for a quick game but really the game requires a few hours if you have more than 3 people. Especially if everybody is pretty good at strategizing.

Nothing like embezzlement with tangible paper bills though :D

but by the time the electronic banks came out, nobody I know likes to play board games anymore.
