Modern Monopoly Highlights the Shame of Today's UK High Street

By Gary Cutlack on at

A Tesco. Another Tesco. A boarded up something, and another Tesco. That's what you can expect to see in this ultra-modern version of Monopoly, which takes inspiration from the depressing lows of today's miserable, recession-hit society.

Other highlights from the comedic interpretation of the classic board game include plenty of Poundlands, branches of Starbucks everywhere, and boarded up JD Sports warehouses. The Community Chest cards have also been updated, including a new take on the "Get out of Jail free" option -- which involves moving to the Ecuadorian Embassy and staying there forever.
