I think it's stupid, but the company is just trying to make money.

So, Hasboro believes women aren't as capable as men; therefore, they must be given an advantage to compensate for lacking natural ability?

Yep, a liberal definitely came up with this.

When are they going to realise Black Monopoly? I'm guessing Hasboro will replace properties with record deals and sports contracts believing that blacks can't get ahead by buying and managing property.

It never gets old watching liberals tell women and non-whites they are inferior while so many women and non-whites celebrate being portrayed as inferior by liberals.

I guess replacing the iron piece just wasn’t enough.

I'm sure this would appeal to a large number of leftist and feminist.

When I was younger and played monopoly with my older sister, she always wanted to be the banker and she always cheated and usually ended up winning.

You can almost hear the meeting.

"Next on the agenda: Monopoly. We have this old crappy piece of intellectual property that's universally known - mostly for being slow, boring and prone to start arguments. How can we squeeze a few more dollars out of it?"

- "Change one of the pieces to great fanfare?"
- "Make a deeply insulting Millennial version. Every old fart out there hates millennials, and the millennials will defend themselves. That should get us some clicks."
- "Make a gender-biased version to get some free press?"
- "Or - how about we make better games that are actually fun to play?"

"WHO SAID THAT LAST??? FIRE HIM!"

That sounds a lot like I imagine any typical meeting of Democrats goes. "What can we screw up next?"

I completely believe that is what you imagine.

Hasbro is a $5Bn company, they're not in the business of changing the world. They're merely stripmining an old property in order to see if they can extract another couple of bucks without having to be all inventive and other hard stuff.

Why wouldn't I? They constantly come up with new, stupid and off the wall ideals from their "think tanks".

and the thimble!

Personally, I enjoyed being the thimble, because it was so easy to move around the board
