It's probably not good for a product when you can look at it and instantly picture a room full of our-of-touch executives who thought it would be a good idea.

That's exactly what I see looking at Hasbro's newest release: Monopoly for Millennials. It seems like the game was designed specifically to make fun of the generation.

The whole thing is basically just a collection of stereotypes, like:

  • Uncle Pennybags wearing a participation medal.
  • Game pieces shaped like a hashtag and a crying-laughing emoji.
  • A rule where whoever has the most debt in real life goes first.
  • The slogan on the box says, "Forget real estate. You can't afford it anyway."

It looks like both Amazon and Walmart are sold out of the game, but I'm sure they'll restock before the holidays.
