The Monopoly Empire tokens may look very, very familiar to those who consider themselves consumers. The game was announced a few months back, but new details about it have emerged since its official launch. Monopoly Empire is indeed a faster way to play the classic property acquiring game, only this time you win by acquiring brands instead of properties.

The new emphasis on acquiring brands means the Monopoly Empire tokens have been given a makeover as well. The game features some pretty recognizable player pieces, such as a pouch of fries from McDonald's, a bottle of Coca-Cola and even a Corvette C7 Stingray (that's a Chevrolet token). The game is won by being the first person to fill their tower full of brands and rent is charged according to tower height.
