The Game That Has Some Millennials Triggered
New for Christmas 2018, it's Monopoly for Millennials from Hasbro. I honestly think Hasbro made this game because they expect parents with kids older than 25 who still live at home to give it as a joke gift.
Whatever the case, it's got a few millennials "triggered" and complaining about the games negativity. In their defense, it relies on stereotypes which no doubt intentionally get under some people's skin.
Some of the reviews include:
Just Baby boomer propaganda. Can we get a Monopoly for Boomers, with every space being low wages and not understanding credit. Uh oh you landed on housing market crash - via Walmart.com
I would give no stars if I could. I saw this product in Walmart and it just made me sad. I live in a place where housing is very expensive and this game would be depressing. Spots on the game board are - Go live with your parents, Go live on your friend's couch. It says on the front "Forget real estate, you can't afford it anyway." I think Milton Brady made a misstep on this one. Sad commentary on society. And $44 on Amazon - please. - via Amazon.com
It is in fact $42 on Amazon, but Walmart is selling it for much cheaper if you're interested.
