PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – A classic board game is getting a makeover to celebrate women’s empowerment. “Ms. Monopoly” is a new take on Hasbro’s Monopoly.
In the new version, females will earn more money than their male challengers.
Women collect $240 Monopoly dollars every time they pass “Go,” but men get the usual $200.

Another change is that players don’t buy properties. They invest in inventions created by women.
The game is now available to pre-order.
