As advertised on Amazon, “adulting is hard” so “take a break from the rat race with this edition of the Monopoly game.”
With that, Hasbro Inc. brings you Monopoly for Millennials where apparently players start deep in debt and “collect Experience points by visiting the hottest Destinations – from your Friend’s Couch, to the Vegan Bistro, to a Week-Long Meditation Retreat."
You don’t win by having the most money, but rather the most experience.
(Think unpaid internship.)
Just imagine if they had a Canadian version of that …

Amazon took over Seattle. Here’s what the others can expect.
