A new board game that teaches how Socialism can ruin your life.

Monopoly Socialism is an official version of the game manufactured by the toy company Hasbro.
Socialists are pissed.

“ADULT TWIST ON THE CLASSIC BOARD GAME: This adult board game is a hilarious adult twist on classic Monopoly gameplay WORK TOGETHER…OR NOT: This adult party edition of the Monopoly game has players moving around the board contributing to community projects…unless they can steal projects to get ahead WINNING IS FOR CAPITALISTS: Contribute to the Community Fund…unless you choose deplete it. Consider the best interest of the group…unless you want to forget that and just do what you need to do CHANCE CARDS: Working together might seem ideal, but Chance Cards can abruptly shake things up with things such as lousy neighbors, vegan meatloaf, and bad plumbing FUN ADULT PARTY GAME: Get ready for laughs as the twists and turns of life put a damper on working toward a shared, utopian society. Cooperation isn't always what it's cracked up to be In the Monopoly Socialism game players move around the board working together to make a better community by managing and contributing to projects such as a no-tip vegan restaurant, an all-winners school, or a museum of co-creation. But nobody said that cooperation is easy! Drawing a Chance card presents the flip side of striving for the perfect utopian society. You'll have issues with your neighbors, your DIY community projects go awry, you're constantly voting to shake things up, and there's always an emergency that requires dipping into the Community Fund! Contribute all 10 of your chips to win the game, unless the Community Fund runs out of money and everyone loses. So much for a socialist utopia. The Hasbro, Hasbro Gaming, Parker Brothers, and Monopoly names and logos, the distinctive design of the gameboard, the four corner squares, the Mr. Monopoly name and character, as well as each of the distinctive elements of the board and playing pieces are trademarks of Hasbro for its property trading game and game equipment.”

    For my end-of-semester showcase in my new The Basics of Making class, each student/faculty/staff evaluator will be granted $2000 in Monopoly money that they can spend on others’ products (proceeds going to a container with a yellow Post-It note) to simulate customer interest, invest in others’ products (proceeds going to a container with a pink Post-It notes to simulate crowdsourcing, or not spend the money at all on the night of the showcase. After the showcase, students’ Monopoly dollars will be divided by 100 and be redeemable for Arduino-based sensors, controls, and other items from excess inventory. This $20 per person cost is built into the cost of the kit purchased at the start of the course.

    I purchased this game for my liberal Millenial children. They played it once (and only once) with their equally liberal friends. Their faces upon the early completion of the game were drawn and gray. “Isn’t Socialism fun?”, I queried. No commentary at all from this usually in your face gang.

    I suppose the yellow cards of Community Chest all say "Free Stuff" and there are no winners but when the bank forecloses on all the properties, the game is over.
