An Australian edition of Monopoly is finally here and if that’s making you want to grab a cork hat and fire up the barbie, there’s more to be excited about.
The limited-edition Monopoly game is an “Australian Community Relief” board, one that honours regional Aussie communities which have been impacted by the devastating bushfires, floods and course, COVID-19 this year.
The game features 22 regional communities on the board in place of your OG squares like Mayfair and Park Lane. That means you’ll actually find town names like Broken Hill (NSW), Bundaberg (QLD), Katherine (NT), Mount Gambier (SA) and Karratha (WA) across the game. There’s also customised Aussie “Community Chest” and “Chance” playing cards too which read call to actions like "you are caught hoarding 240 rolls of toilet paper, pay $50".
From each Australian Community Relief Edition MONOPOLY that gets purchased, $5 will be donated directly to The Australia Red Cross to keep supporting those in need around Australia. You can also hit up a MONOPOLY puzzle, in which $2 will be donated.
