Move over Park Place, Boardwalk and Marvin Gardens. The newest edition of Monopoly puts the Kosel Hamaarovi, Machane Yehuda and Israel Museum on the game board.
HAARETZ reports that the world’s largest toymaker, Hasbro, has teamed up with Israel’s KodKod to market the latest version of the decades old, rainy day favorite, an Israeli-themed game called Yerushalayim Monopoly.
The board features 28 tourist destinations, and appears in both English and Hebrew, a press release from a public relations firm representing the company says.
Yerushalayim Monopoly is the first version of the 81-year-old game developed in Israel, and is soon expected to be marketed not only in Israel but in many other countries as well.
The real question is: Will the Monopoly have Mir Yerushalayim, Yeshivas Brisk, Yeshivas Rav Tzvi Kaplan, Yeshivas Rav Dovid Soloveitchik, To Mo, and Ner Mo on its board?
