New “Monopoly” update gives women an “advantage”

Women want “equal” rights so now they have a board game that gives them an “advantage.”

Liberal logic is not designed to make sense.

From NY Post: Do not pass go, do not collect…$240?

The iconic Monopoly board game is getting a feminist update for 2019.

Hasbro’s newest version of the game, dubbed “Ms. Monopoly,” will pay female players more than males – a tongue-in-cheek commentary on the gender pay gap in America.

In Ms. Monopoly, women will receive $240 when they pass “go,” whereas men will only receive the usual $200. Additionally, women will receive $1900 at the beginning of the game instead of $1500, according to USA Today.

On the game box, the classic Rich Uncle Pennybags character is replaced by his “niece” Ms. Monopoly, ready to break the glass ceiling with her gray blazer and cup of coffee.

At the bottom, the slogan reads, “The first game where women make more than men.”

“[It’s] a fun new take on the game that creates a world where women have an advantage often enjoyed by men,” Hasbro said in a statement. “But don’t worry, if men play their cards right, they can make more money too.”

The pay disparity is not the only female-centric addition to the game. Instead of buying traditional properties and charging rent, players will instead have the chance to invest in inventions pioneered by women, including Wi-Fi and chocolate chip cookies, according to CNN.

“With all of the things surrounding female empowerment, it felt right to bring this to Monopoly in a fresh new way,” Jen Boswinkel, senior director of global brand strategy and marketing for Hasbro, told USA Today. “It’s giving the topic some relevancy to everyone playing it that everybody gets a turn, and this time women get an advantage at the start.”

Boswinkel also told USA Today that families can opt to give out equal amounts of cash to every player if they choose.

Hasbro faced some heat last month after another edition of the game, Monopoly Socialism, gained attention on social media. Designed as a parody of the game’s capitalism-centric themes, some accused it of being condescending and getting socialism theory wrong.

Ms. Monopoly is available for pre-order September 10.

So women are given $400 more than men. Not a problem, after they go to the hair salon and Sephora for make-up, we’re even again.

So women suck and need handouts? Or are we teaching welfare is a good thing? Somehow I think this is a flop. Do not worry I will go to jail, I will not pass go nor collect my 200 dollars

There is no gender pay gap, women generally make less than men because they take more time off from work. It is inconceivable now that men would be paid more than women doing the same job. At the last two clinics where I worked all of the women were paid more than me. Toxic males have less value in the mental health field. Monopoly was created during the Great Depression so people could fantasize about being wealthy. The board is modeled around Atlantic City, NJ. My strategy was to buy up all the railroads because other players always seemed to… Read more »

It’s hard to lose when you have all 4 railroads.

Yup, one on each side of the board. If you can get them it’s only a matter of time before other players land there. This will affect male players more now because we will have less money to work with. Unless we “play our cards right”. I assume that means submit to voluntary castration

Hasbro announced they’re also coming out with a “Slumlord Edition” to honor the limousine liberals and poverty pimps making a killing in the ‘hoods.

“..it felt right to bring this to Monopoly in a fresh new way,” says Jen Bullwinkle, the marketing cow moose. Nothing fresh and new about it, it’s the same old divide-and-conquer gender/class conflict bolshevik swill in a different package

At Oxford University women are given an additional 15 minutes to complete math exams. They accept without complaining that it unfair or unequal

Medical schools in the US pass over nineteen more qualified (essentially white Euro) male applicants for every woman they accept. The wholly owned AMA then allows graduates from Indian medical schools equivalent at best to nursing programs in the US to take the physician licensing exams in all 50 states.

I know, it’s all Indians here. My doctor was Indian, a ‘specialist” and a complete idiot. She ordered BW and added a urine screen for “long-term and current use of opiate analgesics”. WTF? I assure you I don’t use opiates but that’s the kind of thing that pops up in the Big Computer when you apply for a pistol permit, which took me months to get, in this befrigged state. And now they are taking them away from legal gun owners for no reason here. Anyway she left before I could fire her. I was going to ask her, don’t… Read more »

Liberal loons destroy everything they touch! Anything that is fun is ruined the moment they get their grubby hands on it. Hasbro, it was nice knowing you. Bye!😝

Meanwhile anyone with a brain sees women are given a HANDICAP, normally given to weaker players.

My wife plays full-contact Monopoly. She doesn’t need an advantage.

No Prob. I’ll just identify as a women for the game, and earn “real life” cred by sharing their “lived experience!”
