    Default Monopoly Maker Drops Boardwalk From New Edition

    Monopoly Maker Drops Boardwalk From New Edition

    ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. -- Hasbro, the toy and game maker, is not including Boardwalk in a special edition of Monopoly scheduled for release late this summer.

    Instead, the "Monopoly: Here and Now Edition" will use streets, neighborhoods and national monuments from 22 U.S. cities. The cities, picked by Hasbro based on population, popularity as tourist destinations and input from the company's game designers, include Chicago, San Francisco and New Orleans.

    Civic leaders near Atlantic City, N.J. are aghast, even trying to sway Hasbro with a petition. Boardwalk is the most expensive and prestigious property.

    But the company is intent on marketing the new version of Monopoly, even though the traditional version will still be sold -- the game originally sold by Parker Brothers.

    For Atlantic City, this is another insult. It follows a decision by the Miss America pageant to move the beauty contest to Las Vegas after 84 years on the Boardwalk.
