Hasbro Releases A New Version of Monopoly Giving Women An Advantage

Monopoly is getting a makeover.  In the new Ms Monopoly version women make more money than men and the game celebrates female inventors.,

In the new version women will collect 240 Monopoly bucks when they pass “go,” while male players will collect the usual 200. It’s “a fun new take on the game that creates a world where women have an advantage often enjoyed by men,” the creators said.

Twitter reactions were mixed.

Monopoly causes enough stress, imagine adding this new rule for 7 year olds 🤣 #NoThanks “At the start, the banker gives $1,900 to each female player & $1,500 to each male. The gap continues when a player passes Go w/ women collecting $240 & men $200.”

and the Late Night Shows had some fun with it

What do you think? Do we need this new version?
