Monopoly Live - the Electronic Version of the Famous Board Game but with Tower


One of the most popular board game, Monopoly, goes electronic. The most interesting feature of the redesigned game, which is by the way called Monopoly Live, is an all-seeing electronic tower that rises 10 inches above the board.

The "tower" is probably the reason why Monopoly Live costs $50 and not $15 like the original.

It would be interesting to note that the tower features infrared lights and a camera that is used to make sure that no one cheats.

Besides, the tower, which is powered by 4AA batteries, announces some on-the-spot events such as a horse race, gas tax and auctions, reports New York Times.

It also recalls the money a player has and it never breaks down.
