Monopoly has created a new board game just for people who can’t afford to own a home.

Hasbro has devised a new Monopoly For Millennials.

“Forget real estate. You can’t afford it anyway,” the cover of the board game reads.

Players don’t win with money to buy homes or railroads, but instead collect “experience points” by earning rewards such as a three-day music festival or going to a vegan bistro — because memories “last forever”.

According to the description of the game on the Walmart website, this version of Monopoly was made because “adulting is hard.”

Instead of earning money as players do in the traditional Monopoly, players in this game collect experiences as they travel around the board.

The board features spaces like “three-day music festival,” “parent’s basement,” and “farmer’s market” and includes game pieces shaped like a hashtag and an emoji.

Not everyone is impressed!

People have turned to Twitter to express their feelings about the new game.

Some of them feel it’s a bit unfair that a generation is being “trashed” by a board game.

  • I know so many people travelling and going to festival…. some fit in the ‘millennial’ category, some don’t. I can imagine some people would be offended by this game

  • The original is the best in my opinion!

  • They’re always putting out gimmicky versions – that’s all this is…

  • I guess for people who want to purchase a house it’s like another kick.

  • I am a millennial myself and I see the funny side in it and may just buy it for someone for Xmas to take the piss out of them. But then again there is the game of life…

  • Um, I do see the funny side. But I also see the difficulties this generation gave in purchasing their own home. My son and his partner have been trying for a number of years with no luck. They keep saving but house prices and interest rates keep increasing. They just never have enough for a deposit
