Monopoly Millennials: Forget Real Estate, You Can't Afford It Anyway

Recommended Posts

New Monopoly for Millennials board game has offended the target audience
The game, which focuses on experiences rather than real estate, has called been called 'patronising'

Chelsea Ritschel 1 day ago

Monopoly has released a new edition targeted towards millennials - and it has everything from avocados to thrift stores, but no houses.

Hasbro, the game makers behind the iconic board game created the millennial version to appeal to people born between 1981 and 1996 - by including all types of stereotypical millennial content.
 
The point of the new game, rather than buying real estate, is to enjoy experiences - because as the box explains: “Forget real estate. You can’t afford it anyway.”

Experiences include activities such as travel, dining at vegan restaurants, and sleeping on a friend’s couch, and the winning player is the one who collects the most. 
 
The game makers also gave the game’s mascot Rich Uncle Pennybags a millennial makeover - by adding earbuds, blue sunglasses, a disposable coffee cup and a gold “participation” medal.

Hasbro priced the game at $19.82 and it is currently sold out on Walmart’s website, where it was exclusively sold.

It's so ridiculous and cliché-ridden! :lol: I'm surprised that one of the chips is not in the form of avocado.

The game probably includes a card: go straight to jail and self-victimized for the next 3 rounds shouting Yass each time you roll the dice.
