Published by Hasbro in August 2008, Monopoly Here and Now: The World Edition was designed after a to determine which cities would be included on the board. Montreal received the most votes, thus earning its spot on the board's most expensive property.
Monopoly Here and Now: The World Edition also includes updated Chance and Community Chest cards that highlight events from countries around the world. For example, players might celebrate at Carnival in Rio de Janeiro, organize an international music festival or host a St. Patrick's Day festival in Dublin. The tokens, houses and hotels reflect icons and styles from all seven continents.
The board has also had a make-over so that it reflects today’s London and even the counters have had an upgrade – you can now storm your way around the monopoly here and now board with a mobile phone or a cheeseburger!
