MONOPOLY, The World’s Favourite Family Game Brand, Creates Australian Edition to Raise Funds For Local Communities

Published on Wednesday, 25 November 2020 at 8:56:23 AM



On 25 November 2020, 22 local communities from around the nation will be featured in the custom Australian Community Relief MONOPOLY game board to unite Australians nationwide and raise much needed funds due to the impacts of various disasters including bushfires, floods and COVID-19.

The edition will see locally themed squares replace Mayfair and Park Lane from the original MONOPOLY board and include a customised ‘Community Chest’ and ‘Chance’ playing cards, making the entire game a truly Australian experience. As well as showcasing some of the regions that were severely impacted in 2020, the game has also been created to highlight the community spirit and strength of these stunning locations.

$5 per Australian Community Relief Edition MONOPOLY game and $2 from each MONOPOLY Puzzle will be donated directly to The Australian Red Cross, to further assist these areas and people in need around Australia.

Charlotte Waalkens, Representative from Winning Moves Australia, the makers of custom MONOPOLY boards licensed from Hasbro added: “We wanted to provide Australians with something positive in the challenging year that is 2020, and highlight how incredible our own backyard is, whilst also supporting Australians in need. The communities chosen have all gone through a tough time for one reason or another as everyone has in 2020 and we thought they deserved something special to remind everyone how incredible they are, and help inject some positive spirit through the Australian Community Relief MONOPOLY game.”

“Choosing which locations to put on the board was unbelievably difficult, as there are so many phenomenal places to choose from in Australia, and we wanted to showcase places above and beyond the usual cities or hotspots.  We feel that the Australian Community Relief MONOPOLY board and puzzle capture the heart of Australia and shine a positive light on regions that otherwise may not normally receive such exposure. We hope it will also bring a bit of much needed joy to Australian families over the holidays. “


Winning Moves, manufacturers of the official Australian Community Relief version of MONOPOLY under license from Hasbro, say the games will be sold through retailers nationwide. 

Launching across the country on Wednesday November 25th, the games will be available at Big W, Sanity, QBD, Dymocks, Toys R Us, The Iconic, Catch, Hobbyco, Mr Toys, The Nile, Lincraft The Gamesmen, Gameology, Gameshop and Gamesworld.
