Monopoly’s ‘Community Chest’ cards have remained unchanged for 85 years, but that’s about to change.
Game-maker Hasbro is asking players to vote on a new set of community chest cards, “The world has changed a lot since Monopoly became a household name more than 85 years ago, and clearly today community is more important than ever,” said Eric Nyman, Chief Consumer Officer at Hasbro. “We felt like 2021 was the perfect time to give fans the opportunity to show the world what community means to them through voting on new Community Chest Cards. We’re really excited to see what new cards get voted in!”
Hasbro is counting on its 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 “Help Your Neighbors.”
The updated Monopoly game with new, fan-voted Community Chest Cards will be available this Fall. Head to MonopolyCommunityChest.com to cast your vote on the new Community Chest Cards that best represents you and your community.
