Why is this bitchboi so obsessed with socialism? I thought his thing was being a professional weeb (despite Japan being a capitalist nation). I can't believe how many people are actually buying into his crap.

Only bright side to this whole bullshit controversy is that this board game will probably be worth a fortune to collectors in a few years.

Imagine being an "intellectual" but sperging out this hard over a fucking boardgame. :story:
Uh, huh. "Confusingly money is paid from the community fund to a private bank". You know that shit happened in the UK in 2007/2008? The public literally had to buy a bunch of failing banks.

Ditto the bailouts in the Great Recession years, whether we wanted to or not, we bought Fannie Mae, General Motors, several banks and a bunch of other "private" companies. Well, their debt anyway.

All the people seething that if you buy it you're buying a shitty game with broken rules to "own the libs" must not have played actual normal Monopoly.

Take a fucking joke like a man instead of whining.
Especially if you consider the original premise of Monopoly, back before it went mainstream, was to "own" the Capitalists by playing a game where "one person ends up with all the property and money and everyone else loses" You were supposed to feel bad if you won and the original version, the "Landlord's Game" was never intended to be marketed as a for-profit game, but used as a teaching tool for kids about how socialism was better.


Even at it's over-the-top farcical worst, people have more fun with Capitalism....

Hasbro owns Wizards of the Coast, who owns MTG and D&D. Both of which are EXTREMELY cucked and filled to the brim with Woke faggots. I'm absolutely gobsmacked that they released this.
They've also gone all in to help Disney make Star Wars and Marvel girl products that ended up on clearance. I didn't expect this from the company that is selling America Chavez and Captain Marvel dolls for little girls.

The connection to socialism could be the number of people who conflate the two. There's a substantial number of people in the regressive left/rat king who also conflate queerness with anti-capitalism as well, as if gay people have to be socialists or they're not really gay.

If this dude can't really see why there might be a link drawn between ostentatious consumption of organic food and socialism, he really doesn't know many modern socialists.

Especially if you consider the original premise of Monopoly, back before it went mainstream, was to "own" the Capitalists by playing a game where "one person ends up with all the property and money and everyone else loses" You were supposed to feel bad if you won and the original version, the "Landlord's Game" was never intended to be marketed as a for-profit game, but used as a teaching tool for kids about how socialism was better.
That's the thing that gets me. Monopoly is a satire of capitalism. It's been pretty defanged as the association people have with the game is less 'slum lord and predatory purchasing simulator' and more 'childhood game that tends to get very unfair very quickly', especially as nearly nobody plays by the actual rules and instead by some sort of common knowledge version that has a tendency to prolong a losing players' suffering.

So these people are butthurt that the satire has been turned on them, even while I guarantee they don't even know that's the origins of Monopoly in the first place. Which is to be expected - they're all thin-skinned assholes. But it always throws me how rarely, if ever, these people can actually present a proper argument, in this case about why the game is so bad, instead immediately just stomping their feet and whining that it's not fair because the evil board game is being mean to them.

They can't even complain properly about the message of the game being subverted or something like that, just that it's making fun of something they care about. Though again, considering how much they delight in ignoring context to make their arguments, it would be hypocritical of them to do so ... but they don't even try.

There hasn't been this much butthurt over a satirical Monopoly game since last fall's satirical edition.

Do not pass Go. Do not collect $200. Go directly to hell.

Millennials have long been maligned for their inability to “adult” — from avoiding marriage to quitting their jobs to travel.

But perhaps most central to the millennial MO is the issue of property investments — of which they infamously have none.

So the cynical game-makers at Hasbro devised Monopoly for Millennials.

“Forget real estate. You can’t afford it anyway,” the cover of the $19.82 (get it?) board game reads.

Players don’t win with money to buy homes or railroads, but instead collect “experience points” by earning rewards such as a 3-Day Music Festival or going to a vegan bistro — because memories “last forever.”

Perhaps hitting the closest to home was one of the “hottest destinations” of all: couch-surfing.

Player pieces include a few things millennials simply can’t live without, such as a camera, sunglasses and a hashtag.

“Money doesn’t always buy a great time,” says the insultingly disingenuous description. “But experiences, whether they’re good — or weird — last forever.”

Let’s just hope their student loan debt and the threat of losing Social Security don’t.

They are acting EXACTLY like how religious people act whenever atheists mock their faith. Not even Jihadis, but ordinary salty Christians. "Wow, can you mock something that is so sacred and good and meant to help and improve people's lives?". Same speech.
There is a huge difference between them and the Christians though: the Christians rarely were able to get the thing mocking them pulled off shelves or exhibits removed.

I wonder why this difference exists?

Because most people don't view God as real so what you're offending never existed according to them.

Meanwhile these socialists are in the physical realm despite their claims to women being imaginary.

One of the Monopoly pieces should have been a Helicopter.
