HBO and Hasbro to Release New Edition of MONOPOLY: GAME OF THRONES
Today, Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAS) and HBO join forces to announce the launch of an all new edition of MONOPOLY: GAME OF THRONES game. Inspired by the network's hit series GAME OF THRONES, MONOPOLY: GAME OF THRONES is being rereleased with brand-new features including customized tokens, iconic properties and graphics infused within the game board.
The MONOPOLY GAME OF THRONES Edition game will also now feature an Iron Throne card holder that plays the iconic theme song throughout gameplay. This is the first time ever that a music component has been incorporated into a Monopoly Board.
MONOPOLY and GAME OF THRONES fans can set sail to Westeros, with game tokens inspired by the honorary sigils of the Great Houses. Players will travel around the board to buy, sell, and trade iconic locations from the Seven Kingdoms, building castles and holdfasts in their pursuit to rule the Iron Throne.
"HBO has an incredibly robust and passionate fan base for the GAME OF THRONES series, and we're excited to offer yet another way for these fans to connect with the brand," said Jonathan Berkowitz, President, Hasbro Brands. "The board, the tokens, the money, and even the game pieces are derived directly from the show, ensuring GAME OF THRONES fans can be transported into the world of Westeros through an engaging and authentic MONOPOLY experience."
The MONOPOLY: GAME OF THRONES Edition game, designed for fans ages 18 and up, will be available for pre-order today at Walmart, GameStop, and Amazon, for a suggested retail price of $29.99.
