Protesters taking on game called Ghettopoly

A new board game called Ghettopoly in which players try to amass stolen property and crack houses is selling briskly in Chicago despite criticism that it mocks poverty and misfortune in the African-American community.

In the game, the smartest "playa" buys the most stolen property and erects crack houses and housing projects. Players can choose as their game piece a rock of crack cocaine, a machine gun or a 40-oz. bottle of beer.

Along the way, bonus dollars are awarded to players who can get their entire neighborhood addicted to crack.
