Hasbro Announces "Monopoly Voice Banking" Board Game

Hasbro is making a new change to Monopoly by creating a new audio-driven version of the game called Monopoly Voice Banking. The game will come with a small electronic voice banker which will essentially serve as an impartial third party to the side and handle a number of tasks in the game, as you use your own voice to activate it. No more needing to handle paper money as the game will now track all the funds in your account for you while you buy properties, pay rent, and make your way around the board trying not to go bankrupt. The game is available for purchase starting today at Walmart for $30, and you can check out more info on the game and a look at the board below.
