This sure isn’t your grandfather’s Monopoly.
For one thing, don’t expect to find the iron or the thimble game pieces.
For another, there’s a significant change in the rules.
The front of the box says “Forget real estate. You can’t afford it anyway.”
Day-um. That slogan went straight for the jugular, didn’t it?

“Money doesn’t always buy a great time, but experiences, whether they’re good — or weird — last forever,” reads the game’s description. So rather than collect cash and real estate, as in traditional versions, players collect experiences such as dining at a vegan bistro or doing a meditation retreat—or simply staying in their parents’ basement.
“Adulting is hard. You deserve a break from the rat race!” the blurb adds. Game pieces include a crying emoji and a hashtag.
But the game has drawn mixed reactions. Many millennials are offended while others find it hilarious and jeer at any negative reaction as a classic instance of millennials being coddled.
Parents’ basement. No kidding, they ‘went there’.
We weren’t kidding when we told you the rules were … different.
Another example? Apparently, the person with the highest student debt loan goes first.

Think they’ll get people outraged? Of course.
They already have.
Let’s play a game of MILLENNIAL MONOPOLY. The rules are simple, you start with no money, you can’t afford anything, the board is on fire for some reason and everything is your fault.

Can such an ‘offensive’ game sell?
Sure looks that way — Hasbro is already sold out.
