Useless, unless you own Starbucks too

The Board game 'Monopoly' is facing yet another dramatic change with the traditional squares of Regent St, Coventry St, Old Kent Road, Waterworks, Electricity Board and Marylebone Station making way for new areas of London.

These are thought to include Shoreditch, Southwark, Stoke Newington, Hampstead and Maida Vale.

Starbucks replaces The Electricity Board and Marylebone Station now being East London Line extension.

There will also now be a Prêt a Manger square, Pizza Express and of course a Slug & Lettuce.

The Go to Jail square has been replaced with a Young Offenders Institution/Open Prison whilst Free Parking is now Congestion Charge.

The Waterworks is now Battersea Power Station with Old Kent Road/Whitechapel now St Katherine's Dock and Bow Triangle.

Even traditional favourites such as Oxford Street has been replaced by Brent Cross Shopping Centre and when now passes go you will receive either £200 or 255.55 Euros based on a currency conversion of 1.27774516.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
