Millennial’s Monopoly: Because we can’t afford houses

‘Forget real estate. You can’t afford it anyway.’ That’s the catchy sentence at the bottom of the new Monopoly board released for millennials.

 

Owning a flat in London? We don’t even think about it, homeownership became a mirage for our young generation and it’s sad. But it would be shame not monetizing the situation.

The world famous board game Monopoly just has launched its new version, a version entirely made for us.

Instead of buying as much real estate as they can, players have to collect experiences. Experiences include Friend’s couch, Vegan bistro or a weeklong meditation retreat.

 

 

For the gameplay pieces you have the possibility to choose a hashtag or even a laughing/crying emoji, CLICHÉ.

Oh, and the tagline on the back of the board? ‘Adulting is hard. You deserve a break from the rat race!’

So how do you, millennials, feel about this game? Are you ready to embrace your destiny and joke about it or is it too soon?
