Life takes Visa

This tagline has been running in the print ads for some time now, but never quite so literally as here:

The latest edition of "THE GAME OF LIFE" will switch from paper currency to plastic this summer. VISA and game maker Hasbro have signed a deal to add VISA cards to the latest version of "THE GAME OF LIFE — Twists & Turns Edition." Players of the new edition, due to be released in August, will receive a VISA card at the start of the game and will use an electronic banking unit to store each player's financial data as well as their status in the game. The new electronic "LIFEPod" will replace the spin wheel from the classic game.

I'm waiting for a version of Candy Land with a glucose meter.
