"Just as Monopoly for Millennials was met with mixed reactions when it hit shelves last November, Hasbro’s new Monopoly Socialism game is coming up against some criticism.

In the wake of the toy company unveiling a new edition of its classic board game that parodies the concept of socialism, some detractors have taken to social media to criticize the thinking behind the spin-off.

“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!” the game’s description reads. “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!”
