Orlando’s Disney World Included In New Monopoly Here & Now Game Edition

Game maker Hasbro announced today the results of 3 million online votes this past Spring for the coveted spots on the new Monopoly: Here & Now game edition which will be available this Thursday, September 14th and retail for $29.99.

Voting placed Orlando’s Disney World in the spot normally occupied by Illinois Avenue in the special edition which was designed to answer the question: “What would the most popular board game of all time look like if it were invented today instead of in 1935?” New York’s Times Square placed first in voting, garnering it the costliest spot on the game board that is usually held by Boardwalk.

The updated version of the popular game replaces all 22 properties on the board with modern locations and those properties also reflect today’s economy; for example Times Square with 4 hotels will cost $20 million in rent if you land on it. The Chance and Community Chest cards also offer updated situations such as winning $100,000 in a TV reality show or going to jail without passing “Go” for identity theft. To round out the updated version the playing pieces have been changed into McDonald’s French Fries, a Motorola Razr, a laptop, etc.

Congratulations to Disney World on their inclusion in the new Monopoly: Here & Now version. Mickey and Monopoly…they just go together!
