The Dutch can vote for new Community Chest cards for the game from Friday Monopoly. Board game maker Hasbro thinks the 85-year-old Community Chest cards with topics such as beauty contests, doctor’s bills and annuities are outdated. They are getting an update.
A well-known card from the Community Chest has the text ‘You have won the second prize in a beauty contest and receive M10’. With some cards the player has to pay, with others the person who draws the card gets correctly (Monopoly)-money.
Hasbro is calling on people to vote for new cards, with texts such as: ‘You help your neighbor with her groceries’, ‘You organize a neighborhood party’ and ‘You are a voluntary homework supervisor’.
The sixteen cards should become a better reflection of modern society, the company believes. “The world has changed a lot since Monopoly Was first introduced 85 years ago. We thought 2021 was the perfect time to give fans the opportunity to show the world what matters in real life by voting for new, modern Community Chest cards, ”said Marijn ter Hofsté of Hasbro Gaming.
You can vote for the new Community Chest cards between 19 March and 9 April 2021 on the election site.
