Hasbro, the makers of Monopoly, have announced a new version of the game that will feature locations from 20 U.S. cities, including Houston.
As part of its promotional effort, the company is asking Houstonians to pick one of three "landmarks" to be used in the game. And by doing so, they've exposed just how lame a tourist destination Houston is.
One of the choices offered is obvious: NASA's Johnson Space Center. The others? "Kemah Boardwalk" or "Museum District."
Has anyone outside the Houston area ever heard of the Kemah Boardwalk, much less wanted to go there? We're just surprised Tilman Fertitta didn't figure out a way for the Monopoly folks to put an ad on there for Joe's Crab Shack.
