Board game beamouth, Parker Brothers, is replacing all that multi colored cash with a plastic "debit" card and card reader.

My opinion is that this is a combination of trying to "jazz up" the game and the thought that mass-producing these cards/readers is just as cheap as printing the money and they can charge more for it.

Hopefully nobody will buy it.
