The Monopoly board game was once a celebration of capitalism but this fall, Hasbro will be releasing a new version called the Cheater’s Edition.
The new rules and features seem to embrace Marxism and wealth redistribution, so perhaps Hasbro should have called it the “Venezuelan Edition.”
But where’s the satisfaction in winning any game by cheating? Doesn’t any such achievement become a hollow victory?
An iconic mass-produced, mass-marketed board game that celebrates cheating as opposed to condemning it moves that proverbial moral compass ever so slightly.
This edition of Monopoly sends the wrong message, especially to those in society who already feel entitled so I hope it’s dead on arrival.
As for the genius who came up with the Cheater’s Edition of Monopoly, please go directly to jail; do not pass Go, do not collect $200.
