Monopoly Cheater's Edition
Hasbro has announced a brand new edition of Monopoly that actively encourages cheating. "The decision came after a company-sponsored survey found that 'nearly half of game players attempt to cheat during Monopoly games' Berkowitz told Insider, adding, 'so in 2018, we decided it was time to give fans what they’ve been craving all along — a Monopoly game that actually encourages cheating.'”
