I was hoping for an official Socialism/Communism Monopoly: Comrade Edition when I saw this, kind of like those homebrew rules for the regular version that turn the game into an even more hilarious shitfest than it already is. Instead they just slapped a coat of red and black paint on Monopoly: Millenial Edition and resold it. I'm pissed that its not actually enough of a parody of Socialism, its just making fun of hipsters like the last time they did this. The player pieces are also bright tractor paint red. Lame.

Edit: Holy shit it actually is just a pallette swap:

Its exactly the same board. There's only two properties per color like someone pointed out above, and the railroad spaces are also nixed. It also has tokens instead of houses and hotels. They literally reprinted this thing for outrage sales.

Hey, imagine you're the dude who has to figure out a way to move more monopoly units. Now, assuming you haven't already blown your brains out, can you come up with a better way?

I'd at least put the effort into making that Monopoly: Comrade edition I sperged about above. There was also a website back in the day called Insurgency Gaming that published a Law And Order (not the TV show) and a Mafia deck that could replace either Chance or Community Chest. There's also the homebrew Illuminopoly where the players are actually the Illuminati masquerading as property owners. Really they could have just robbed any number of homebrew rulesets and just pretended they had no idea they existed.

I think forever ago there was a Monopoly: Las Vegas Edition that didn't feature any kind of gambling mechanic or any different cards for Chance/Community Chest. Missed opportunity there.

Indeed I do: it happens in this board every time someone suggests that capitalism might have flaws.
Of course it has flaws. No one has denied that.

But capitalism is a small cigarette pot burning on the back patio for a little while, and communism is a coked-up chimp in the living room with a flamethrower.

That doesn't mean both of those situations are equally catastrophic.

If you're talking pure ancap style capitalism then that would be pretty catastrophic.
There were also plenty of horrors in early capitalism when many market regulations we take for granted now didn't exist yet, like child labour laws.

That's why you don't have that job. While you were "thinking" and "being creative" this dude slapped a pallette swap on some other shitty half assed idea, attached a silly controversy, and fucked off home at 930.

That is capitalism!

It's not just a palette swap. The roads are only in one. The question marks are differently shaped. The railways are different tiles. One has one type of card, the other has two types of card.

Socialism also has a special one, with different dice.

Besides recreating monopoly types is basically their business model. They've got 100s of versions.

Lmao, that is utopian. There's a reason why Orwell's variant of Democratic Socialism was an evolutionary dead end, overshadowed by the authoritarian nature of Marxism which he (rightfully) railed against on the one hand, and the far more socially and practically acceptable Social 'capitalism with some gibs' Democracy on the other.
It isn't really utopian, or else all improvements to society are utopian. It is human nature to be fair and generous, and it is fair to say that charity is not enough.
