HASBRO TO IMMORTALIZE SAN ANTONIO LANDMARKS IN THE WORLD’S MOST POPULAR BOARD GAME, MONOPOLY, AND RESIDENTS CAN JOIN THE FUN
Thanks to Hasbro, in August San Antonians will be able to play the world’s most popular board game in a way that pays tribute to all things San Antonio.
From today until 03/17/21, fans can voice which locations they would like to see featured on the board via the official MONOPOLY San Antonio email firstname.lastname@example.org .
The edition will see locally themed squares replace Boardwalk and Park Place from the original Atlantic City MONOPOLY board and include a customized ‘Community Chest’ and ‘Chance’ playing cards, making the
entire game truly a San Antonio experience. A few squares will also be dedicated to some of the iconic and much-loved Alamo City landmarks.
Top Trumps Inc, manufacturers of the official San Antonio version of MONOPOLY under license from Hasbro, say the game will be on shelves starting in September.
Benjamin Thompson, representative from Top Trumps said: “We want to ensure that MONOPOLY San Antonio is an accurate portrayal of what locals love about the city, so we would love for everyone to get on board and send us their recommendations of what they would like to see included. Anything and everything are up for consideration – from the Alamo City: The Missions, the Art Museums, Riverwalk, we want to know what your favorite place is to go to in beautiful San Antonio and have it be on the board– so get involved!
“This edition will be everything you love about the traditional board, adapted in a way that San Antonians will enjoy for generations to come. There will also be opportunities in the coming months for the community
and individuals alike to get involved in the creation of this game, so stay tuned for more exciting details,” Benjamin adds.
