With a Monopoly game, players can collect piles of cash in ways that few of us can use in real life – but that will change if the game is played without cash.

Manufacturer Hasbro has made a version that uses digital assistant technology such as the Amazon Echo to track the money of each player.

It is undoubtedly a solution for players who are obsessed by ensuring that everyone abides by the rules, because technology makes cheating a thing of the past, Times reports.

Mr Monopoly, with his famous top hat and white mustache, will be a voice activated banker, whose voice is sent through a high hat shaped speaker in the center of the board.

The board game is intended for technologically more skilled players who do not want to take the trouble to deal with paper money.

Game pieces such as the ship, the car and the dog each have a button so that players can activate transactions.

A Hasbro spokesperson said: & # 39; Talk to Mr. Monopoly and he answers. Press the button of your token and say & # 39; Buy St James Place & # 39 ;, and Mr. Monopoly will follow the transaction, keeping the game moving. & # 39;

And in the same way that some digital assistants joke or respond to a conversation, Monopoly will have a & # 39; personality & # 39; to have.

The game is only for four players instead of six and the colors of the board have been changed to a black background with fluorescent colors for features.

But some fans have voiced their disapproval online, with one message: & # 39; Monopoly without cheating is not fun & # 39 ;.

Another addition: & # 39; I only win if I am the banker. & # 39; The new edition is released in August and costs £ 30 – around £ 10 more than a traditional set.
