While Mr. Monopoly remains your real-estate go-to, Ms. Monopoly is here to (literally) change the game. Instead of properties, the new game will feature inventions and historical innovations, ranging from scientific to everyday-practical, created by women. Did you know that wifi was invented by a woman? Betcha didn’t! (Look up Hedy Lamarr.) No more building houses – it’s time to build business headquarters!
Hasbro has also featured three teenage inventors- all girls – in their new campaign. They’ve invested $20,580 in each of their inventions and future projects. 16-year-old Sophia Wang has invented a device to detect sinkholes. 16-year-old Ava Canney has invented a spectrometer to measure the levels of dye in soft drinks. And 13-year-old Gitanjali Rao has invented a device to detect the amount of lead in drinking water.
According to Hasbro, Ms. Monopoly is a fun new take on the game that creates a world where women have an advantage often enjoyed by men. But don’t worry, if men play their cards right, they can make more money too.
A game that inspires girls of all ages to be the best they can be and change the world? Hasbro is winning with this one. Check out the full video below to learn more about the game and the three amazing teen inventors.
Ms. Monopoly will be available at most major retailers. So, go ahead, inspire someone…or yourself…and order yours today!
