Monopoly fans, start your clicking! The folks at Hasbro have decided to create a new version of the 76 year old boardgame later this year. The "Here & Now Edition" will feature not only inflated denominations and property values but 22 national landmarks, including Wrigley Field and O'Hare airport from our dear old Chicago. In this version, however, fans of the game get to vote on where their favorite landmarks will end up on the board, with the most votes garnering the chosen landmark the coveted Boardwalk spot. Vote early and often online until May 12 [Flash 8 required].
