MONOPOLY: The Newport edition unveiled

Mr. Monopoly, and local dignitaries premiere the board inspired by the City of Newport

Local officials and business leaders, along with Mr. Monopoly, unveiled MONOPOLY: Newport Edition at a media held in May, hosted at Audrain Auto Museum, in Newport. The game is the only licensed version in the state, introduced by Top Trumps USA, the American division of Winning Moves International, creators of classic games and puzzles, and under license by Hasbro, a toy and game company.

MONOPOLY: Newport Edition replaces the perennial board game’s Atlantic City squares (from Boardwalk to Park Place) with Newport cultural sites, historic landmarks, charitable organizations, and businesses. It also features customized Community Chest and Chance playing cards to ensure the board is a historic and enduring tribute to one of the most popular destinations in the central U.S.

“We appreciate all those who suggested landmarks, organizations and businesses that make Newport unique and truly special. And we are pleased so many of them raced in to win the opportunity for a place on the board,” said John Marano, a Top Trumps USA representative.

MONOPOLY: Newport Edition will be available in stores and online at retail partners, including CVS, Amazon, Barnes & Noble.
