The Battle Royale just gained another major player. Hasbro has entered the arena, announcing a partnership with Epic Games to introduce a range of Fortnite inspired play experiences, including a line of officially licensed NERF Fortnite blasters, and a MONOPOLY: Fortnite Edition Game. They join the likes of Jazwares (action figures), Moose Toys (collectible figures under 3") and Funko (Pop! Vinyl) in getting a piece of the expanding Fortnite action!
This morning, Hasbro has announced the MONOPOLY Token Madness Vote (#MonopolyVote), which leaves the fate of all eight current and classic MONOPOLY tokens - including the Scottie Dog- in the hands of the fans for the first time. From now through January 31, 2017, MONOPOLY fans can visit a special website to cast their vote for which eight tokens they’d like to see in the next MONOPOLY game. The field this year is a big one, with 64 tokens in the running (see them all on my Facebook page), including the current eight tokens and 50+ new contenders. This means, that for the first time ever, all eight current tokens could get voted out of the game. Since Charles Darrow first created MONOPOLY back in 1933, a total of 20 different tokens have appeared in standard editions of the game, but never before have they been completely voted out at once. As the original tokens were originally reflective of 1930s America, a 2017 edition of the game could reflect the modern world in which we now live.
Just in-time for the Fall Gaming season, the iconic Monopoly game has been reimagined as MONOPOLY EMPIRE. This time, instead of trading property, players get to build their Empire by owning some of the World's Top Brands. To celebrate the launch, the folks at Hasbro Games have teamed up with The Rock Father to get one lucky reader hooked up with the new game... a perfect addition to Hasbro Game Night at any home. Check out the full details and get those entries in below!
With Fall upon us bringing shorter days and longer nights, the time is ripe for bringing some classic games back into play. That said, the folks at HASBRO GAMES hit The Rock Father with details on some special savings on games including MONOPOLY, SCRABBLE, CLUE, OPERATION, BATTLESHIP, and more! These are printable coupons that can be redeemed at your favorite store through September 9.
