Hasbro Launches New Monopoly That Can Be Played In Under 30 Minutes


One of the biggest gripes I have with Monopoly these days is that I don’t want to spend half of my day to dedicate my life to a game where I make believe I am a business tycoon when the only reason why I end up winning is based on pure luck. At thirty-one years old, I’m sure children, teens and young adults have even less time to spend on Monopoly, which is why Hasbro has launched a new version of the game that is said to take a total of 30 minutes to complete, called Monopoly Empire.

The newly-launched children’s version of Monopoly uses a “first-past-the-post” system, which means a player can win simply by collecting a certain number of assets rather than forcing his fellow players into bankruptcy. Hasbro vice president of marketing Jonathan Berkowitz says the new Monopoly was a result of feedback from parents and children, who say “they want a quick in-and-out, frictionless gaming experience.”

A shorter version of Monopoly is one I’m sure many of players have been looking years to experience, but 30 minutes seems a little short to me. I think the sweet spot would be at least an hour, but who am I to go against the powerful Hasbro?
