New 'Monopoly' game will pay female players more than males

New 'Monopoly' game will pay female players more than males”

The latest edition of Monopoly has been given a new twist where women are paid more than men despite performing the same task, and players make their way around the board collecting things that wouldn't exist without females. In recent years, Hasbro has also made other versions of the game, like Avengers, Toy Story, Game of Thrones, and Fortnite to try to stay relevant. While Darrow and Parker Brothers made millions for the game, Magie reportedly only gained $500 for the game which Monopoly was appropriated.

"There are so many big things that most people think are created by men, but they're actually created by women", Gitanjali, who's on Forbes' 2019 30 under 30 list for science, noted to the paper. After that, female players collect $240 when they pass "Go", whereas their male counterparts collect the traditional $200.

Each female player gets the advantage before anyone even rolls the dice, as women receive $1,900 to the $1,500 given to the male players. This is the first time a new mascot has been on the cover of a game of Monopoly, Hasbro told ABC News. Ms. Monopoly, which costs $19.99, will be sold at retailers this month and is available for preorder at Walmart. Instead, they put their money into inventions by women, from bulletproof vests to solar heating to chocolate chip cookies. The game functioned under two sets of rules: The first allowed all players to be rewarded when wealth was generated, while the second set of rules let players build up their own monopolies with the sole intention to beat opponents.

The visionary board game is just one small step towards full gender equality, of course. "However, there have been a number of popular property-trading games throughout history". Buys her patent decades later for $500 so they can bury it in favor of a similar game "invented" by a man, which praised capitalism instead of critiquing it.

"Ms. Monopoly", as the new game is called, aims to celebrate women trailblazers and "while Mr. Monopoly is a real-estate mogul, Ms. Monopoly (who is apparently Mr. Monopoly's niece) is an advocate whose mission is to invest in female entrepreneurs", according to Hasbro's release statement. A trio of teenage girls was featured in a video vignette announcing Ms. Monopoly's launch.
