I think this new version of Monopoly is great. Gives the boys a taste of real life at an early age.

Ha. Well put.

Gender pay gap - especially in 'business'. That's rich. Just an effective money grab on a falsehood. How long have women been a protected class?

The trick to monopoly is being better at cheating than everyone else
Well that too, but my trick doesn't involve cheating. I'm not even sure if I should say it. If I tell everyone the secret, then at some future point in time end up playing someone who learned my secret, I only have a 50% chance of winning instead of my usual 100%.

Alright fine, here goes. Buy effing everything you land on. Except the first 2 purple properties, they're so worthless you might as well skip them. And the 2 utilities are rather worthless too, and the railroads aren't too exciting. When you run out of money, flip property cards over that don't yet have houses and mortgage those properties, and use the funds to buy the properties you're still landing on. Do whatever you can to get every property of a color, then put houses on those as fast as you reasonably can (will require unmortgaging those properties if you need to).

With the extra money the gals get, do they have to buy me houses? Give me a weekly allowance? Give me half when we get divorced? Support me totally when I decide to not work for 20 years to raise children? Then give me half plus half her retirement when we get divorced? Plus die ten years before I do?

Im all for teaching the young gals life lessons, but I say make it ultra realistic.

black women get even more money to start and start 20 spaces ahead. Asians have to circle the board one full rotation before they pass go to make sure they are not over-represented in the "wins"

So, instead of cash, they run up their credit cards, and can get 209a Protective Orders...?

Will Rich Uncle PennyBags be replaced by Rich Auntie Hillary?

The houses you put up will be rent controlled and minorities will only have to pay 33 percent of the rent value.

Ms. Monoply, replaces properties with “groundbreaking inventions and innovations” by women throughout history....From inventions like WiFi to chocolate chip cookies, solar heating and modern shapewear, Ms. Monopoly celebrates everything from scientific advancements to everyday accessories – all created by women
[rofl][rofl]
chocolate chip cookies. modern shapewear.

aka building civilizations and changing the world

Wasn’t it just last week we were talking about socialism monopoly?

Some of you guys take this too seriously. They’re all just parodies.

The socialism one was a parody. This one is serious. Or at least it's really being released by Hasbro.

I was just gonna say, if you combine Ms. Monopoly and Blackopoly you could be swimming in dough.
