Hasbro, Inc. has also announced for the first time in its 85+ years, Monopoly will be re-imagining all 16 of its Community Chest Cards. Monopoly is asking consumers worldwide to determine the 16 new cards by voting at MonopolyCommunityChest.com. Covering topics like beauty contests, holiday funds, and life insurance, there is no denying the Monopoly game’s Community Chest Cards are long overdue for a refresh. And, coming out of the tumultuous year of 2020, the term “community” has taken on a whole new meaning. Hasbro is counting on their fans to help reflect what community means in their real lives, into the Monopoly game, by voting for new cards like “Shop Local”, “Rescue A Puppy” or “Helping Your Neighbors.”
Says Bhavesh Somaya, General Manager – South Asia, Hasbro: “The world has embraced a new sense of community and so have we. Our fans are passionate about Monopoly, and we are excited to get their inputs on the new Community Chest Cards. This is a significant step in bringing fans closer to the brand and in capturing this renewed community spirit through toy donations in India,” said
The new Monopoly game with the fan-voted Community Chest Cards will be available in India by early 2022.
