Nothing says community like the game that makes your family flip over the table (or is that just mine?).
Monopoly asked fans to choose three new Community Chest Cards that best represented the communities around them to join the game. The fans have spoken and the new cards are “You shopped local ALL week. Advance to go — Collect M200;” “Meow! You knit cozy sweaters for the hairless cats at your local animal shelter — Collect M20;” and “You organize a group to clean up your town’s walking path — Collect M50.”
Fans can see the cards in action for the first time at a charity event featuring Tiffany Haddish (Girls Trip), Josh Gad (Frozen), Ellie Kemper (The Office), and Daymond John (Shark Tank). The event will take place on May 20 on the Monopoly Facebook page at 8 p.m. EST.
Each celebrity will bring their A-game and their Boardwalk-buying skills in order to win money for the charity of their choice. They’re each guaranteed to take home $75,000 but they’ll be playing for an additional $50,000.
Haddish will donate to the She Ready foundation, which empowers and supports kids in the foster care system. Gad’s charity of choice is the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles, a non-profit institution that provides pediatric care. Kemper is playing on behalf of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, whose mission is to advance cures and prevention for pediatric diseases. John will donate his winnings to My Brother’s Keeper Alliance, an organization that helps build safe, supporting communities for boys of color.
The updated Monopoly game with the new Community Chest Cards will make its way into your community this fall.
