One of America's most recognizable board games is getting an upgrade. Hasbro is debuting a new game celebrating women's empowerment -- Ms. Monopoly, marking the first time in Monopoly history when a new mascot will be featured on the cover of the game.
The twist? In Ms. Monopoly, female players will get more money.

Unlike the classic game, women will collect 240 Monopoly bucks when they pass "go," while male players will collect the usual 200. The idea is to create a game where women make more than men, the first game to do so, according to Hasbro.

lol i bet a man made this, it's actually condescending. what's next a version of Super Mario Bros. for women where you can jump twice as high? or a game of basketball where the net is 5' lower to the ground? hah

plus, if you lose as a woman vs. a man, you will have had a head start, effectively you will have lost while cheating.

lol "The first game where women make more than men"

What the hell are they even talking about? Monopoly never discriminated against females when I played, player gender (previously) had no bearing on the game.

"But don't worry, if men play their cards right, they can make more money too."
You baked it into the rules that women receive more money you dolt, unless you mean men can still collect more money than what they start with....no shit? Surprisingly, it is still within the rules for a man to be able to win the game.

lol @ the "Ms." too. She don't need no man.

I absolutely love monopoly and actually am pretty good at the game. Its so fun to find people who play monopoly as well and I get a blast. This kind of monopoly seems to me like a good way to encourage people to play when they see they might have an advantage in the game lol

Monopoly used to be my favorite game because I used to always win.

But this sounds dumb.

What's next, a wheelchair ramp on Baltic Ave?
Rehab center instead of Go To Jail?

It's a game.

I liked how there were always house rules with Monopoly. Did anyone actually ever play this game by the book?

We played by the rules until family members started telling me I was not allowed to hide money/pretend I had less than what I had.

Similar to poker games I used to be a part of, where certain folks started making rules/limits to check raise or even bluffing.

I think it's time men just all move to Alaska and let women have the continental US.

I would LOVE to see how things play out when we are no longer a viable scapegoat. (They'd still blame us.)

It's a game, it's not real life. Is this somehow supposed to make women feel better about it?

I don’t even know what the people at Hasbro were thinking... When did Gender become a thing in Monopoly? Which piece is female? The ship? the dog? It can’t be the top hat ffs I always play as the hat.

I think I might just buy a wig in case my friend whips this out and want to play. I can just say I’m gender fluid duh 🙄

the box art is too perfect. She's ready to seize the day with her pumpkin spice latte and you know she's serious cause she's got her hand on her hip and her trendy t-shirt under blazer combo.

I would say that her blazer is covering the word "egomaniac", but it's much more likely that it would say "You GO girl!"

You know how when you play monopoly with relatives, the same persons always win in the end ? For me it was my big sister or a female cousin (or my mother, in the rare occasions when she played with us). It never felt like women needed an additional advantage. :p

monopoly was already a tool to show how bad monopolies were for everyone else

and now it's a tool to show how preferential treatment is bad for everyone else as well

truly one of the wokest board games out there. maybe even better than the dungeons and dragons my local antifa chapter runs at 2pm on thursdays.

NO dude, women float horizontally in Mario Bros. Luigis jump higher.



Anyway, on topic - I think they should just let women grab whatever they want whenever they want from the bank and trust that they're only taking 200, #believeallwomen

But cant you just do that with regular monopoly?
Hang on a minute... You're fucking right!

But now if you buy the traditional version it means you're a cis piece of shit.

(In before Monopoly is not a real game. I own the Fortnite and Simpsons versions.)

I read this version from the Washington Post this morning and found myself literally laughing out loud at this sentence:

"Investments in real estate from the original game have been replaced by investments in innovations made by women, such as bulletproof vests, WiFi, chocolate chip cookies and ladies’ modern shapewear."

And:

"The rollout of Ms. Monopoly, which can be preordered at Walmart starting Sept. 10, comes after the launches of two other recent spinoffs, Monopoly: Socialism and Monopoly for Millennials."

Thank god for Bulletproof vests, Wifi, cookies and shape-wear right comrades?

Edit: Happy 9/11

What happens when the man wins? Is that allowed? I'd love to play this against women just to crush them into oblivion.

You will probably be accused of rape and be handed the 'Go Directly to Jail' card.
