Hasbro is Selling a Longer Version of Monopoly

The game makers at Hasbro are toying with us. I mean that in both the literal and metaphorical. I'm pretty sure that the makers of what has to be the most popular board game of all time, Monopoly, might be using us as the shiny little tokens in a grand social experiment on how long the latest iteration of the cut-throat real estate game takes to totally destroy our relationships.
Monopoly: Longest Game Ever promises to magnify everything you love and/or hate about this game to the maximum. For me, it would be a combination of awesome and isolating. I love this game, but it brings out the unforgiving slumlord in me - and that tends to make me unpopular. That's why, for the sake of my family's sanity I only play in the underground leagues with strangers.
This new version of the classic game has 3 of every property and only one die. On top of that, it's a "last man standing" situation - that means the fun doesn’t end until a player owns every single property. Yes, that includes utilities, railroads, and the souls of those who dared play the game with you. That last one is more of a family rule.
If that sounds terrible to you, not to worry, There's a much quicker way to start a fight with your loved ones. Hasbro has also released Speed Monopoly, which promises to have you done in 10 minutes or less.
