Before we answer our lead question here, let me tell you a few things about Monopoly for Millennials. These are all facts, just like it’s a fact that Hasbro has also released Monopoly: Cheaters Edition and Monopoly: Cat Lovers’ Edition. Interpret those facts however you want. We’re just giving you context.
But okay, here are some true things about Monopoly for Millennials. (h/t Gizmodo)
- The game intentionally goes away from the real estate format because—and this is actually on the cover of the game—”You can’t afford it anyway.”
- Game pieces include a camera, a pair of sunglasses and a hashtag.
- Instead of buying properties you buy experiences. Park Place is now “3-Day Music Festival.”
- On the cover of the box, Mr. Monopoly is posed taking a selfie with a cup of coffee in his hand.
- The game costs $19.82, a reference to the cut-off year when the millennial generation begins.
- Instead of paying rent when landing on a property, players visit each other at “destinations” like “friend’s couch” and “thrift shop” and “vegan bistro.”
Now, our question: Is Monopoly for Millennials in Satan’s game closet?
The answer: Yes. He has two copies.
