UTOPOLY - playing as a tool to reimagine our future: an interview with Neil Farnan

By Francesca Baglietto - http://bit.ly/2q9r6XZ

The 1904 game of Monopoly was intended to show how landlords accumulate wealth and impoverish society, but today's version normalises competitive land grabbing and rentier behaviour. Francesca Baglietto interviews Neil Farnan about Utopoly - a 'hack' of Monopoly that engages people's imagination and ideas for a better society.
