Google Monopoly by UK designer James Belkevitz is a modern reinterpretation of the famous board game, which shows evident criticism of the policies of the Internet giant. In this game, the players aim to take ownership of multi-billion dollar companies like YouTube, Facebook, Tumblr and Twitter.

The Google Monopoly money features the faces of Google founders. The 10 'Chance' and 10 'Google' cards provide interesting facts about the Google empire. Finally, instead of Going to Jail, players avoid lawyer fees, energy bills, or court cases with the goal of landing on the Tax Avoidance Scheme.

As for the metal pieces, there is the addition of Penguin and Panda pieces, both reflecting a Google update, one of which crushed many businesses.
