A new version of Monopoly is on the way, and it’s going to feature plenty of New Jersey pride.
Top Trumps USA, which makes numerous games and puzzles, plans on releasing a South Jersey Shore edition of Monopoly in June 2023. The board game, licensed by Hasbro, was officially announced at a Thursday morning press conference at the Cape May Zoo.
Ahead of the edition’s summer debut, the company is soliciting South Jersey businesses, nonprofits and landmarks to appear on the board. These new spots will replace classic Atlantic City squares, such as Pennsylvania Avenue and Park Place. The South Jersey Shore board is also going to feature a customized Community Chest, as well as Chance playing cards and money, that honor the Garden State.
“South Jersey has an incredibly unique identity as ‘The Place for Family Fun,’” Brooke Gorman, a rep for Top Trumps USA, said in a release. “From bustling nightlife to beautiful beaches, boardwalks and everything in between, we are excited to create an accurate portrayal of what visitors and residents love about the shore.”
Jersey Shore businesses and nonprofits aren’t the only ones who can lend their opinions. The general public can also provide input regarding what the new Monopoly board should look like. All submissions should be sent to [email protected] for consideration.
Once the new Monopoly edition is released next June, it will be available in stores and online, including CVS, Amazon and more.
Monopoly has a long history of releasing special editions of the popular game, including boards for different parts of the world, sports teams, movie franchises and more. Various versions of the game are sold for $44.99 on the Top Trumps USA website.Click here to leave a comment
