The makers of the popular boardgame, ‘Monopoly’, have rolled out a new version that’s aimed at millennials.
Game manufacturer Hasbro have created ‘Monopoly for Millennials’ with the tagline: “Forget real estate. You can’t afford it anyway.”
Instead of winning property, players now get a participation medal and tally up experiences including doing meditation and dining at a vegan bistro. And instead of rolling a dice, the person with the highest levels of student debt goes first.
Some millennials have called the game “condescending”: a game that pokes fun at the misfortunes of “Generation Rent”.
According to a statement given to Fortune, Hasbro has defended the release of the new game, saying: “We created Monopoly for Millennials to provide fans with a lighthearted game that allows Millennials to take a break from real life and laugh at the relatable experiences and labels that can sometimes be placed on them.
“Whether you are a lifestyle vlogger, emoji lover or you make your ‘side hustle’ selling vegan candles, Monopoly for Millennials is for you!”
