If you’re like us (we think you are since we get along so well), you’ve always wanted to visit the places on the Monopoly game board. Well, now you probably have.
Kansas City Edition Monopoly is now for sale on shelves and online — featuring major KC landmarks.
Hasbro has been making local versions for ~20 years, including locations like Corpus Christi, Napa Valley, and Palm Springs. This is the first one based in Missouri.
Representatives of Top Trumps (licensing partner with Hasbro) presented the game on Wed., Oct 26 — unveiling the board squares with the largest local board ever presented.
“We have truly fallen in love with Kansas City,” Top Trumps rep Brooke Gorman said. “Instantly when we came here, all the locals were easily some of the nicest people we’ve ever met.”
People from featured businesses and districts were in attendance, including Blue the Dog. KCMO Mayor Quinton Lucas was invited to speak.
“I could not be any more excited [...] more than anything, being able to share the Kansas City spirit — one of success, of ingenuity, perseverance, and this exciting place in the middle of America that really is on an incredible trajectory to become one of the world’s greatest cities,” he said.
