Google Goes Monopoly . . . the Board Game

If there's a word Google should avoid like the plague, it's "monopoly."

Yet the online search giant, which is facing tough antitrust questions in Washington these days, is combining forces with toymaker Hasbro to create the world's biggest version of the class real estate board game using Google Maps.
