There’s A Ms. Monopoly Board Game And I Have One Question: Why?

Posted 1 hour ago

Representation!

I know in some people’s books this statement makes me the actual worst, but here goes: I love the board game Monopoly. Hell, my family and I even play it every year while wearing matching T-shirts.

This picture was only taken two years ago, I have no idea why it looks like it’s 1998.

Well, good news for me, a lady: Apparently, Ms. Monopoly exists! Thank the heavens, because all that masculine energy surrounding regular Monopoly was really cramping my style.

Women earning more than men, what a fun novelty!

Although the game was released in the bygone era of September 2019, Twitter has rediscovered its existence:

im losing my mind. there is no way you’re going to be able to predict what this ad is trying to sell you finally, now more than ever, women can buy our product

Indeed, it’s safe to say that the ad for the game wasn’t exactly a slam dunk with 79k dislikes on YouTube:

“What makes Ms. Monopoly any different?” I hear you cry. For starters, “In the Ms. Monopoly game, women get a higher payout at the start of the game and more money when passing go.”

Was it really “about time”?

The game gets rid of the ghastly male tokens, like shoes and small dogs, and replaces them with things like a wine glass and a dumbbell.

I finally feel seen!

Rather than buying properties, “players buy some of the things that wouldn’t exist without the innovative women who invented them.”

And speaking of female inventors, the game’s existence is certainly odd given that Monopoly was invented by Lizzie Magie in the early 1900s — what a girl boss!

Repackaging a board game that was stolen from its original female creator as “Ms. Monopoly” to appeal to young women takes massive, wheelbarrow sized balls

There we have it, ladies. Can’t wait to go celebrate my fellow womankind with Ms. Monopoly.
