The latest incarnation of the beloved Hasbro game has the public divided between rolling on the floor laughing and so much hate.
The newest version titled “Monopoly for Millennials”, pulls no punches in its mocking depiction of the generation. Starting front and center is the box tagline reading “Forget real estate. You can’t afford it anyway” which is followed by a nearly endless string of barbs like the product description, “Adulting is hard; take a break from the rat race…” even mascot Milburn Pennybags is sporting a participation ribbon.
While many are finding the game’s antics to be hilarious, notably most millennials aren’t taking it so well.
There has been plenty of Tweets made to show the distaste:
“@Hasbro Can you provide the URL for the Hasbro-official website featuring “Monopoly for Millennials,” where you trash on my age demographic because baby boomers caused an economic catastrophe that rendered us financially impotent for a decade? Thanks!”
“I’m not sure who @hasbro made Monopoly for Millennials for? As if we don’t get s*** on enough lol… A game about millennial life should absolutely include paying rent. A lot of it. The vast majority of us can’t afford to spend money on “experiences.” Anyway, disappointed.
