Hasbro Inc. is introducing a new version of the classic board game called Ms. Monopoly, where the Monopoly Man, with his mustache, cane and top hat, is replaced by a blazer-wearing, coffee-swilling businesswoman — an “advocate whose mission is to reinvest in female entrepreneurs.”

The rules generally stay the same as in the classic real estate game. But instead of purchasing properties, players buy up inventions and innovations that women had a hand in creating, like Wi-Fi and chocolate chip cookies, Hasbro said in a news release.

Players will build business headquarters instead of houses in this game. And in a move that flips the pay-gap narrative, women start with more money than men; they will also get more money when passing Go.

  1. This reminds me of the Australian bakery (or was it in New Zealand, and it might have been a cafe) that was owned by women and exclusively employed women, charged women a cheaper price than they charged men. They said that since men get paid more, they can also afford to pay more. In case you guessed that it went out of business, you are right.

    They’ve created a game with a tiny demographic. No man will play ever and only queer women will be interested. It’s clearly meant to be little more than a political stunt.
