Ms. Monopoly is a celebration of female entrepreneurs and inventors that swaps property trading with inventions that wouldn’t exist without women — and at the start of the game, women get a higher payout and more money when passing Go.
At the center of the game is Mr. Monopoly’s niece — “a self-made investment guru” — who sets the stage for a new experience that pays tribute to inventions, including chocolate chip cookies, bullet-proof vests, Wi-Fi, and more. And property isn’t completely out, as players can build a corporate headquarters to collect more rent. Modern flourishes include ride shares and solar heating, and tokens include a notebook and pen, a jet, a glass, a watch, a barbell, and Ms. Monopoly’s white hat.

As part of the launch, Hasbro awarded a select group of young female inventors with first-edition versions of Ms. Monopoly and $20,580 in real money to help spur the success of further innovation. That’s the same amount of “Monopoly Money” contained in each classic game box.
The game is available to order now from Walmart.
