Some say life is just a game. Ralph’s Tavern in Worcester, Massachusetts, accepted Monopoly money as currency for two hours as part of its attempt to be included in a localized version of the game. The bar says customers who visited the business between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. yesterday (June 23rd) could use Monopoly money to pay the $5 cover charge, and the play money was also accepted for hot dogs, non-alcoholic Jell-O shots and tickets for a raffle. The owner says state laws barred the business from accepting the Monopoly money for alcoholic beverages. Top Trumps USA is the company licensed by Hasbro to produce localized Monopoly games.
