'Monopoly For Sore Losers' is the ultimate board game for people who hate losing
Hate losing? Then you'll love Monopoly For Sore Losers
Monopoly has been given a fresh twist for Christmas 2020, and it's one that people who suck at Monopoly will love. Not that you'd ever admit to sucking at Monopoly. That would not be very Monopoly of you.
Monopoly For Sore Losers turns the concept of Monopoly on its head: instead of being punished for doing badly, you get rewarded instead.
"Players earn cash by doing the typically frustrating things in the game such as going to Jail, paying rent on a property, or going bankrupt," the product description says.
"And those who really start sinking can make a comeback using the large Mr. Monopoly token that gives players advantages over everyone else."
Monopoly For Sore Losers costs £18 from Argos, and is sure to be a huge hit at Christmas - providing there actually is a Christmas this year.
If you hate losing at Monopoly, so much so that you'll do anything to win, you might also be interested in Monopoly: Cheater's Edition.
"The outlandish suggestions on the board, cards, and rules encourage players to express their inner cheater to own it all while they buy, sell, dream, and scheme," the product description says.
"Fake a die roll, steal some bills from the bank, and even skip out on rent. Complete a cheat to get a reward, but fail a cheat and pay the consequences!"
So it's just like real life capitalism. Except the cheats don't go to jail.
That's a decent bit of satire, isn't it?
Monopoly: Cheater's Edition also costs £18 from Argos, but is not guaranteed to reduce the number of board flips from sore losers. Neither is Monopoly For Sore Losers, mind.
