Even Fictional Property Is Now More Expensive

The Guardian News Blog today has some more details on the new editions of Monopoly which we reported on back in January.

Apparently the new 70th Edition version of the game will do away with the water works, Oxford Street, Bow Street and Angel and replace them with the London Eye, Covent Garden, Notting Hill, Hammersmith Apollo and Soho.

Canary Wharf and the City will replace Park Lane and Mayfair as the most expensive properties...and if you buy the limited edition Here and Now version you'll notice the prices have gone up a bit too.

Canary Wharf, for example, will set you back £3.5m, while 'the City' is a tad more pricey at £4m.

Are they doing this just to make us feel old or what? We don't know about you, but the first time we sit down with our kids to play Monopoly there's absolutely no way we'll be able to resist the temptation to say "How much? In my day you could buy the whole of West London for under a grand!".
