Monopoly is Getting "Modernized"


Hasbro is modernizing Monopoly for the first time in decades. But unlike other recent re-brands, this one has nothing to do with cancel culture - it's just time for some long overdue new language.

In 85 years, Monopoly has NEVER changed the "Community Chest" cards, and if you've played the game recently you'll know that a lot of the language feels outdated and irrelevant.

A representative for the brand says "Covering topics like beauty contests, holiday funds, and life insurance, there is no denying the Monopoly game's Community Chest cards are long overdue for a refresh."

Monopoly is having open voting for 16 NEW Community Chest cards, with possibilities like

"You rescue a puppy - and you feel rescued, too! GET OUT OF JAIL FREE"

"You had a neighborhood party - but you didn't recycle your trash! Pay $100"

"You spend the day playing games with kids at a local children's hospital. Collect $100"
