In what seems like the weirdest choice possible, Hasbro announced this morning that the Thimble had won the Monopoly Return token vote. Last month, the company announced that it was looking to bring one of the classic tokens back into the game and replace one of the current newer tokens it’s introduced over the past 20 years. Announced when Today’s show this morning, the Thimble will return next year and replace the T-Rex, which we fully agree with on the final end of this deal. Real talk, we voted for the return of the Horse & Rider, but that’s just our personal preference with the fact that we prefer playing the Boot over the Thimble. But according to Hasbro’s information below, it beat all the other picks. (Including the Cannon, which was quietly retired and never given a reason.)

In the global call to action, fans were given the opportunity to vote for one of the current tokens and bring back one of six iconic retired tokens, popularized in the 1990s, in the next generation of the Monopoly game – thimble, wheelbarrow, iron, boot, horse and rider or bag of money. Since voting kicked off on April 28, all-time favorite Thimble has consistently been the leader among the contenders, eventually securing 30% of the vote. In the 2017 fan vote, the thimble, wheelbarrow, and boot were retired and replaced with the penguin, T-Rex, and rubber ducky, but fast forward to 2022 where the thimble takes over. his revenge! While the race was tight, the T-Rex received the most votes to leave the game by 30% and will retire his instant Monopoly Course.

Hasbro will begin replacing the T-Rex with the Thimble token, so those who want to continue playing with the T-Rex and the other seven current tokens have a limited time to grab the existing version of the game from Amazon. The updated version of Monopoly The board game featuring the thimble alongside Scottie, Battleship, Racecar, Top Hat, Penguin, Hazel and Rubber Ducky tokens will be available in the fall of this year in the US on Amazon and in the spring of 2023 in the world.

Match Group sues Google for ‘monopoly power’ in Android app payments – TechCrunch https://forumfrei.net/match-group-sues-google-for-monopoly-power-in-android-app-payments-techcrunch/ Tue, 10 May 2022 07:00:00 +0000 https://forumfrei.net/match-group-sues-google-for-monopoly-power-in-android-app-payments-techcrunch/ The parent company of dating apps Tinder, Match and OkCupid is suing Google, alleging the company has too much control over payments through its Google Play app marketplace.

The parent company of dating apps Tinder, Match and OkCupid is suing Google, alleging the company has too much control over payments through its Google Play app marketplace.

The lawsuit, filed Monday in the Northern District of California, accuses the company of deploying “anti-competitive tactics” to maintain a monopoly over the Android mobile ecosystem:

Ten years ago, Match Group was Google’s partner. We are now his hostage. Google attracted app developers to its platform with the assurance that we could give users the choice to pay for the services they want.

But once it monopolized the Android app distribution market with Google Play by overlapping the most popular app developers, Google sought to ban alternative in-app payment processing services in order to be able to reduce almost all in-app transactions on Android. .

Match’s lawsuit is the latest example of app developers demanding relief from Google and Apple over the standard 30% – now, sometimes 15% – cut those tech giants extract from in-app payments. Longstanding tensions around the issue boiled over in 2020 when Epic Games sued Apple for violating antitrust laws, a case that didn’t yield a clear winner but forced Apple to allow developers to direct their users to other payment options.

Faced with pressure over its restrictive payment choices, Google recently launched a pilot program that would allow apps to offer an alternative payment option with Google Play’s own in-app system. Spotify was the only company named as a participant in the pilot program, and Match says the company pushed back on its own efforts to sign up.

At the same time, Google announced plans to crack down on apps that circumvent its billing systems, setting a June 1 deadline. In light of the deadline, Match Group CEO Shar Dubey called the lawsuit a “last resort measure” for dating. app company.

“They control the distribution of apps on Android devices and claim developers could successfully reach consumers on Android elsewhere,” Dubey said. “It’s like saying ‘you don’t have to take the elevator to the 60th floor of a building, you can always climb the outside wall.’ It’s not legitimate.”

In a statement to TechCrunch, Google dismissed the Match retrial as a “self-serving campaign” to avoid paying its fair share. “…Even if they don’t want to comply with Google Play policies, Android’s openness still gives them multiple ways to distribute their apps to Android users, including through other app stores. Android apps, either directly to users through their website or as consumer-only apps,” a Google spokesperson said.

Match Group is a member of the Coalition for App Fairness, a developer advocacy group that draws attention to how Apple and Google’s dominance in the mobile software market negatively affects app developers. Epic Games, Spotify and Tile are other prominent members of the group, which was formed in 2020 around the time Epic stepped up its own complaints.

Developers tired of paying such a large share of their in-app revenue to Apple and Google are increasing the pressure on those companies, but governments around the world are taking an increasing interest in the issue.

In the United States, the bipartisan Open Markets Act would open up both iOS and Android app stores, upending Apple and Google’s shared stranglehold on the mobile software world. This bill came out of a Senate committee earlier this year and looks set to continue its slow progress toward becoming law.

Last week, a competition complaint in the Netherlands against Match Group’s Google Play Store sparked a preliminary investigation into the company’s potential anti-competitive practices. This country’s Consumer and Markets Authority is also in a row with Apple over its own app payment processes, and the regulatory group has ordered the company to allow dating apps to offer options. alternative payment methods.

Hasbro revealed a new partnership with Nintendo today as they come together to release Monopoly Jr. Super Mario Edition. The two companies have worked together in the past on a few different titles from the long catalog of games they have in each other’s libraries. The most recent ones that come to mind are the Mario Kart version of Monopolyand the Super Mario version of Jenga. The two kind of twisted the original concepts on their ear and presented the two titles in different ways, so it felt like the original with a bit of a twist.

The same thing happens here as you get a slightly modified version of the Monopoly Kids Edition. You get four iconic characters from the franchise to play as, as you race around the smaller board collecting properties as well as the famous gold coins. At the moment the game is only available as Amazon exclusive, which they sell for around $22. It’s not yet known whether or not they’ll put it on retail, but we can’t imagine they’d hold back from releasing it in stores later this year for the holidays.

the Monopoly Junior The game teams up with Super Mario characters and themes for action-packed excitement! In this Monopoly Junior: Super Mario Edition board game, children can imagine having a fun adventure through the Mushroom Kingdom.

Players roll the power-up die to see if they can press the coin sound unit to hear the iconic Super Mario coin sound and collect coins.

Lakers superstar Russell Westbrook is causing a stir on social media with his latest outfit at the MetGala event.

Controversy’s favorite kid, Russell Westbrook, never fails to grab headlines, whether on or off the pitch. Brodie is not one to play by public perceptions, for which he continues to pay a heavy price. The former MVP is one of the most polarizing athletes in American sports history.

While no one can question Westbrook’s will towards the game, his demeanor and style of play are a constant topic of discussion. The former OKC superstar isn’t shy about speaking out, more often than not getting him in trouble.

However, nothing tops Westbrook’s recent outing with the Lakers. Brodie became a source of ridicule for his turnovers and inability to shoot. It won’t be wrong to describe the two-time world champion’s debut season with purple and gold as horrible.

Russell Westbrook is turning heads with his recent MetGala appearance.

Adhering to not playing by public perception policy, Westbrook never fails to turn heads with her outfits. While some may applaud him for his audacity, others find it absurd.

During his recent appearance at the MetGala event, the nine-time All-Star was spotted in a rather unusual outfit sending social media into a tizzy.

Westbrook would address her fearless take on fashion during a red carpet interview.

Regardless of what people had to say about her outfit, Westbrook radiated confidence on the red carpet. On the professional front, Brodie trade rumors continue to dominate the headlines, with the latest destination being the Charlotte Hornets.

The classic board game Monopoly has taken many versions over the years; thanks to British expat Ian Steele, who includes a Beijing version, or 北京opoly.

The game includes a number of scenarios that many people who have ever lived in Beijing may have experienced. Click the link below to read the interview we did with Steele about the game in March 2021.

READ MORE: Meet the man who created the ‘Beijing Monopoly

In addition to his day job in admissions at Harrow International School in Beijing, Steele runs Custom Beijing which, as the name suggests, sells customizable and (mostly) Beijing-related products; an original personalized Beijing map of the capital proudly hangs from the It’s Beijing Office!

Not content with creating just one original Beijing board game, Steele recently created Beijing nightsa mystery role-playing game with… shall we say… characteristics of Beijing.

In a recent interview, Steele said It is in regards to Beijing nightshow to create an engaging board game and a chance for It’s Beijing readers to get their hands on a free copy of the game in a raffle.


Before talking about Beijing Nights, give us an update on 北京OPOLY who It is previously covered.
北京OPOLY was a far greater success than I expected when we last spoke about a year ago. Since the last article, I have ordered the production of almost 1000 copies of the game and they are selling out very quickly, unfortunately, it seems because many people are leaving Beijing this summer and want to take a souvenir with them. After many requests, I turn to the production of 上海OPOLY as one of my next projects.

Tell us about the inspiration behind Beijing Nights.
As with everything I do in Custom Beijing, I like to try to put a Beijing touch on things. This set seemed like an ideal format to add Beijing “characters”, such as “Hutong Elders”, “Bao’an”, “Laowai”, etc., so it also serves as a fun souvenir of the city to take home. with you when you go, while being a really fun game to play at home or in a bar when you’re on the go.

What is the objective of the game ? Tell us everything we need to know about it.
Beijing nights is shorter than 北京OPOLY – probably 10 or 15 minutes per game – and is actually a mystery card game. It is very similar to One Night Werewolf and somewhat similar to secret hitlerfor those who know board games.

WechatIMG2325.jpeg

As a group (3-10 players), each person secretly selects a role, with each character assigned to either the police team or the town team. Each character has their own specific action, and in turn, each character performs that action secretly. After all rounds have been completed, players must identify the Police character(s) to win.

WechatIMG2323.jpeg

There is a lot of deception though, and it’s not as simple as it sounds. Once you get used to the gameplay, it can make for some really lively games!

This is your second board game. What do you think is the secret to creating a great board game? Do you follow any particular principles and/or formulas when designing?
I think it’s safe to say that my games are heavily influenced by others, but my main goal is to bring that Beijing touch to them all! I want the people who live here to really feel like they have a unique game that will be fun to play now, but also fun to play in the future so they can bring back fond memories of the city.

WechatIMG2326.jpeg

I think the number of requests I’ve received from people in the US, Australia, UK and other countries who have since left Beijing and want something that brings back their memories of this big city is the proof!

Finally, I think quality is extremely important. We’ve all bought random fakes on Taobao that fall apart in a short time, but my games are super high quality – from the box and board to the cards and tokens inside.

These are built to last!

How can people find out more about the game and get their hands on a copy?
I have a few options. For those who have a VPN, you can follow my Instagram page at @custom.beijing or my Facebook page at @custombeijing.

To purchase the games, or to ask more questions about any of the products I offer, you can contact me via WeChat (WeChat ID: Beijing-2021- or scan the QR code below).

WechatIMG2321.jpeg

To celebrate one year since the last It’s Beijing item, I am offering one of each of the 北京OPOLY and Beijing nights free games as part of a draw.

If one of your readers buys me a game and quotes me “It’s Beijing” when ordering i will put their name in a *draw and after the closing date (two weeks from the date of publication) two people will be drawn and i will refund their payments so they get their game for free !


*Note that to be included in the raffle, readers MUST cite “It’s Beijing” during the order. Only orders placed from the date of publication (Tuesday April 12, 2022) until midnight Tuesday April 26, 2022 will be accepted into the draw.
