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.

"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.
