'Super Mario' meets Monopoly in the new 'Gamer Edition' of the board game
Long before kids around the world experienced the joy of carefully maneuvering an Italian plumber past perilous pits and grumpy goombas, there was Monopoly. The game initially launched all the way back in 1935.
In 2017, the 80-plus-year-old board game is getting a new version explicitly intended to address the new generations who grew up with the likes of Super Mario.
The new game, dubbed "Monopoly Gamer Edition," arrives this August. But this isn't your grandma's Monopoly. Here's what's new in the "Gamer Edition" of Monopoly:
- Fake news continues to be a major concern for 64% news consumers in India: Ormax Media report
- Xiaomi continues to dominate Indian smartphone market despite losing market share
- Aluminum industry wants custom duty on scrap to be increased to 10% to protect domestic companies
