Edge On The Clock: Monopoly for Millennials Might Insult Its Target Audience
The new Monopoly for Millennials might insult its target audience. The board game’s tag line is “Forget real estate, you can’t afford it anyway.”
In this version, players don’t buy up properties. Instead they buy “experiences” like going to a music festival or vegan bistro. Game pieces include a smiley emoji and a hashtag, and the player with the most student loan debt goes first.
Plus: people on social media can’t get over a wine with a very x-rated name, and a company in Wisconsin is giving each worker a gun this year as a holiday bonus.
