Monopoly

The classic board game Monopoly is causing controversy in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
The toy and game maker, Hasbro, is not including Boardwald in a special edition of Monopoly.
Instead, the "Monopoly: Here and Now Edition" will use streets, neighborhoods, and national monumnets from 22 U.S. cities.
Atlantic City was modeled in the original game.
Civic Leaders near Atlantic City are upset and are trying to sway Hasbro with a petition.
But the company is intent on marketing the new version of Monopoly, even though the traditional game will still be sold.
This is another insult for Atlantic City.
It follows a decision by the Miss America Pageant to move the beauty contest to Las Vegas after 84 years on the Boardwalk.
