Millennials can’t seem to catch a break when it comes to jokes about their age group. Hasbro has decided to not let up on the jokes either. Monopoly for Millennials was recently released as a version of their classic game. The game’s focus is on the life of people who were born between 1981 and 1996.
On the cover of the box is Monopoly icon Rich Uncle Pennybags. He’s holding a cup of coffee while wearing earbuds and medal that says “Participation.” The tagline reads, “Forget real estate. You can’t afford it anyway.”
However, people aren’t minding the price for the game. It is currently selling for $19.82. Unfortunately, on Walmart’s website, the game is out of stock. Though the board does feature the traditional “Go To Jail” space, there is something different from the classic version. Instead of being able to collect money, players collect experiences as they travel the board. The experiences include “Parents’ Basement,” “Thrift Shop” and “Farmers’ Market.”
Monopoly for Millennials Rubbing Some Folks The Wrong Way
In a description of the game, it says that money doesn’t always buy a great time. However, experiences, whether they’re good — or weird — last forever. It also notes that adulting is hard.
Many people on Twitter are expressing their feelings on the game. Some were saying that the game was an unfair portrayal of the demographic.
On Twitter user was asking from them to provide the URL for the Hasbro-official website featuring Monopoly for Millennials. The user was saying that the game was trashing the age demographic. Also, that it was the baby boomers who were the ones to cause the economic catastrophe that renders Millenials financially impotent.
However, one user says that they were playing the new game from three hours. Also, the more they learn about the game, the better it gets.
