Get ready for more Monopoly news.

Hasbro is finally ready to release Monopoly City Edition, it’s 3D version of Monopoly. It’s planning lots of giveaways and hooplahs.

One of the first is Monopoly City Streets, an online game where you can buy and sell real-world streets using Google Maps. It doesn’t actually appear to have much to do with the rules of Monopoly, but whatever. The site will be up Sep 9. (source)

Another is Hasbro’s designating Sep 23 as National Family Game Night. Sep 23 is, of course, the date of the Concordat of Worms. I’m pretty sure that’s the reason.
