Cleveland wins a spot on new Monopoly game board
CLEVELAND, Ohio — Cleveland has won a spot in the new “Monopoly Here and Now” U.S. Edition game board that Hasbro will release this fall.
Cleveland was among 60 cities in the running. That group was narrowed down to the top 20 after online voting.
The highest-ranking city was Pierre, South Dakota, and it will get the Boardwalk spot. Cleveland came in at No. 12 out of 20.
The winning cities will replace the names in the original 1935 game, in which the properties were named after streets in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
Hasbro left it to online voters to choose which cities would appear in the U.S. version and another featuring world cities. More than 4 million votes were cast.
Other cities that will be featured in the U.S. Edition game are: Minneapolis, New York City, Virginia Beach, Los Angeles, Chicago, Indianapolis, Charleston, Detroit, Boston, Milwaukee, Asheville (North Carolina), Denver, Atlanta, Little Rock, Seattle, Portsmouth, Charlotte and Dallas.
