Monopoly reveals Kansas City edition featuring local spots

Kansas City, Mo.

Hasbro just launched the Kansas City Monopoly edition, and the company did it in style.

Mr. Monopoly arrived at the event Wednesday in a 1918 camo-colored Model T Ford to meet Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas. Then they play a massive game together, and you can too.

The creators said they received thousands of suggestions about places and landmarks to include in the game when the project was announced earlier this year.

A life-size Monopoly board was set up outside the National World War I Museum, and it was ready for the game.

Some of the locations to cut are Loose Park, The Scout, Country Club Plaza, Union Station, Western Auto Sign, and the Crossroads District.

Even the game’s Community Chest card has a Kansas City reference.

“Just the architecture on this board, I think, shows something really special about our city and something about whenever our friends come to the city they see what our city has to offer. It just takes the impression to the next level, ”said Andy Rieger, J. Rieger & Co.

Hasbro says the game is available at Made in KC locations, Amazon, CVS, Zona Rosa, and most locations featured in Monopoly games.
