    So, unlike the traditional game of Monopoly, this game ends with everyone penniless? Lol!

    I asked a question about Millennial Monopoly last year during one of my gigs. Can't recall off hand what it was, maybe the tokens. I'll have to look that up in my database.

    I have Beatle Monopoly, but I haven't taken the plastic wrap off it so that it will preserve it's value.

    It's funny. I should give my socialist 19 year old niece one for X-mas this year.

    Though in traditional Monopoly, everybody but one player ends up penniless.

    Does "Beatle Monopoly" have tokens representing Stuart Sutcliffe and Pete Best as well as John, Paul, George, and Ringo?

    The slogan on the Millennial version says,

    Forget real estate, you can’t afford it anyway.

    And on the Socialist version?

    What’s yours is ours.

    I didn't bother looking at the twitter guy because, it's twitter, but when your article called him a historian, had to double check. Sure enough..

    Associate Professor at Rutgers

    Which makes me wonder how he missed the great big "A Parody of the Classic" line on the box.

    Ted Cruz got wind of this and shot back, probably get the guy more attention than he's ever seen in his academic or twitter career

    Cruz makes some great suggestions, like a Cuban edition or a University edition, where everyone gets an A.
