Oh man, I used to love monopoly, but most of the reason I enjoyed the game was because the game pieces were so deluxe. Metal, heavy, intricate. When did they switch to paper cards for the pieces? This looks like a fraction of the quality monopoly used to be.

There have been literally hundreds of different versions and themes of Monopoly for decades. Are you somehow now just realizing that?
I always thought they were just skins where the underlying game was still the same.
I'm just learning today that the mechanics are different.

When there's a billion different themes, you have to price yourself low enough that the average sucker will buy into your new IP skin.
If you priced it where the original Monopoly was, no one would ever buy it.

Every generation has their fads. Let the children have their Fortmeme.
Comparing rock n roll to fornite?

You just stop.

Not gonna lie, one of the reasons I posted this deal is because I wanted to see some irrationally upset boomers. RFD did not disappoint.
