The new Monopoly
The new Monopoly Here and Now is out and our fair city makes it onto the board twice. Centennial Olympic Park is replacing St. Charles Place, a piece that I have always found to be well-landed on and very helpful in winning the game. Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport also makes the board as the final “railroad.” Railroads, in my opinion, are very useful early in the game but their value diminishes as the game progresses.
A round-up of other Metroblogging cities making the cut can be found here. Frankly, I think Atlanta comes out on top. Two properties. Only NYC, LA, and Chicago can claim that with us. And we already know we’re better than them.
