FORT LAUDERDALE, FLA. (WSVN) - Fort Lauderdale is set to become the latest city to be immortalized in the iconic Monopoly board game.

The city will be featured in the upcoming Monopoly: Fort Lauderdale Edition, scheduled for release in December 2024.

Top Trumps USA, the American division of Winning Moves International, and licensed by Hasbro, will replace the classic Atlantic City squares with beloved Fort Lauderdale landmarks, businesses, and nonprofits. This special edition aims to capture the essence of Fort Lauderdale, featuring customized Community Chest and Chance cards, along with Monopoly money that pays tribute to the vibrant local culture.

“Generations of people have enjoyed playing the traditional Monopoly game and it is a real honor for Fort Lauderdale to be featured in such an iconic game.,” he said. “A Fort Lauderdale edition of Monopoly is another way to share with the rest of the world the great news about what a wonderful place Fort Lauderdale is to call home.”

To ensure the game accurately represents the city, Top Trumps USA asks the community to participate in the selection process. Residents can submit their suggestions for local landmarks and businesses to be featured on the board. Local businesses and nonprofits also have the opportunity to secure a place on this historic edition.
