Can you cheat in a game of Monopoly? I don’t know how. I am a honest-to-core person who are always at the mercy of Lady Luck. But seriously, can one actually cheat? Well, as it turns out, a study made by Hasbro revealed a shocking revelation: nearly half of game players have attempted to cheat during Monopoly games. Instead of frowning upon this despicable act, toy maker Hasbro decided to embrace it by releasing the Monopoly Cheaters’ Edition, or what I like to call it as “How To Commit A Crime and Get Away With It” because, it is what it essentially is about.

Monopoly is set in a scenario of peace, where folks buy and sell properties, charges others for stepping on their properties and such, but I bet you do not expect that ‘business’ to be flourishing after a fallout, right? Logically, the economic will be in a ruin, but that doesn’t stop USAopoly and Bethesda, maker of the game Fallout, from coming together to create a monopoly that’s based on after the terrible fallout. The concept of monopoly is maintained, which means 2 to 6 players can take part in rebuilding the civilization, trading their way through the Fallout wasteland.

While Star Wars: The Force Awakens have received much love by critics and fans alike, we can’t say the same for the merchandize that rolled out prior to the movie’s release last year, specifically with regards to the toys. Disney created quite a furore among fans when female characters, in particular, Rey, was not prominently offered as toys and the same happened to Star Wars: Monopoly. So, yes, Rey wasn’t in the Monopoly’s picture even she is obviously the film’s protagonist and central the plot development. Though, Disney did have a ‘good’ reason for the ‘deliberate’ omission, but explanation, we do not seek. That’s all water under the bridge, is it not?
