Monopoly does away with paper cash, cards

To move ahead, players put their hands over their game piece and the computer tells them how many spaces to advance. They hold their hands over decals to buy or sell properties, and insert bank cards into slots to see how much money they have.

Board games compete with video games these days and Hasbro is trying to generate interest among 8 to 12 year olds.

By the way, the original version of the game will continue to be sold.
