Ms. Monopoly

This is just insulting to women. Are they saying women are too stupid to play monopoly by the same rules as men?

As far as I'm concerned, they aren't. My daughter won the last game we played.

Boy talk about sexist!

Everyone was equal in the original game and now Women are "more" equal!

If they made that game the other way around there would be hell to pay.

Instead of making a new game, maybe just put a new spot near Park Place called Divorce Lawsuit Win...collect from nearest male player.
I know ...oldtrucker is such a ahole.

Yep.

We should make up black and aboriginal games... where they get less than the white players.

But then the Asian players have to work twice as long for their pay.

Seems logical.

Wonder if they will change the “You’ve won 2nd place in a beauty competition, collect $10” Community Chest Card?
They will most likely change it to.. “You’ve have successfully sued a wealthy, powerful business man for sexual harassment that occurred 30 years ago, judge awards you $5 million dollars!”

To even things up a bit, there could be a spots with...
" Socially isolated. Cold shoulder from your friends. Miss one turn if you are female".
Or
" It's Valentines Day and your significant other is a Liberal. Female players pay $200 to the nearest male player on your right."
