Get This: Millennials Are Offended By Millenial Monopoly

Have you heard this one?

It gets funnier

From the link

Hasbro has released a new game, “Monopoly for Millennials,” and it’s getting some blowback from the very demographic the game is supposedly meant to entertain.

The game’s rules and cover art all play up stereotypes the age group is known for.

The box for the game shows Mr. Monopoly taking a selfie, wearing headphones and a participation medal and holding a coffee. The taglines read: “Forget real estate, you can’t afford it anyway,” and “Adulting is hard. You deserve a break from the rat race!” Rather than win by collecting the most money, the game prompts players to collect experiences—including visiting a friend’s couch, going to a vegan bistro, and hitting a week-long meditation retreat. Game pieces include a hashtag and crying emoji.

Though some people are amused by the game, others found the mockery infuriating and took to Twitter to express their irritation.

What follows are a bunch of tweets about Millennials being Offended. They just don’t get the irony. And really, the edition is right on the money. Consider that there have barely been any changes to the game other than graphics in the century since it was released. Certainly nothing major like this. Says something about Millennials.

    I imagine they’re mostly angry about not being able to play it on their smartphones, so they can pass the time, while they’re driving.
