New Board Game: Plutocracy

A new board game has been released with the name of Plutocracy.  It is based on the Parker Brothers game Monopoly which was released during the Great Depression of the 1930s.  How do we know about this game.  We just caught a glimpse of it on the website Fabius Maximus.  The first very noticeable characteristic of the new game is the dominant positions of Boardwalk and Park Place, which occupy a full half of the board.

Now we need to find the real thing and a set of rules.  Rumor has it that may be difficult because the rules may only be known to those who own Boardwalk and Park Place.
