It was only a matter of time before a specific millennial theme for the classic friendship-ruining board game monopoly was made. This time, Hasbro introduced the first-ever Monopoly for Millennials. However, the company could not help but take a jab at the economic conditions of millennials today, inviting a lot of criticisms regarding their view of millennials.

But hold up, isn’t monopoly a game about accumulating cash with properties and real-estate? Why yes it is, but the thing is, the general consensus for millennials is that most of them find it very hard to afford housing and real-estate. So that is what Hasbro made fun of, they even did it on the box, talk about kicking a generation young people while they are down:

It was intended, of course, probably even satirical yet half-serious. Apart from reiterating the current woes of millennials these days, Hasbro also changed how this type of monopoly gets played. Instead of property or cash, the goal of the game is for the players to accumulate experiences such as dining at vegan restaurants, staying at their parents’ basements, and meditation retreats. They really should have stopped there.

But they didn’t stop there, they joked about suicide-inducing massive student debts and other burdens of millennials brought about by the older generations. Hence, some people did not find it funny, millennials to be exact.

Still, Hasbro, in it’s defense stated that millennials were also involved in making the game and stood by their decision, “We created Monopoly for Millennials to provide fans with a lighthearted game that allows Millennials to take a break from real life and laugh at the relatable experiences and labels that can sometimes be placed on them … Whether you are a lifestyle vlogger, emoji lover or you make your ‘side hustle’ selling vegan candles, Monopoly for Millennials is for you!”
