I don’t know about you, but one of my favorite things to do is sit around with my friends and family playing board games. Game nights are a great way to get together with friends while keeping the costs of going out low. If you have everyone bring a side dish and a drink, everyone is guaranteed to have a great time while spending time together. It’s a great way to pass the time and it is sure to bring on some good laughs. Well did you know that this year marks the 80th anniversary of the release of Monopoly! Yes, it’s been around for 80 years. And they decided to celebrate in a way that is completely unheard of!
How many times have you been playing Monopoly and daydreamed about playing with real money? I know I have, but this year, that could be a reality for some lucky players!
Hasbro has decided to do just that! They will be putting real money in their 80th Monopoly anniversary sets, but only some of them! They are going to put real money in about 80 different boxes, but only one will have the jackpot, which will be worth $23,268.
From the looks of it, it’ll only be happening in Europe though. In 10 of the sets, you will find five 20-euro notes, two 50-euro notes, and one 100-euro note. The other 69 sets will have five 10-euro notes and five 20-euro notes.
When they asked Hasbro France about this crazy celebration, they said, “We wanted to do something unique. When we asked our French customers, they told us they wanted to find real money in their Monopoly boxes.”
How cool would it be to open up a brand new box of Monopoly and there is actual real money in it?!? That would definitely be a dream come true. I am hoping they do this in the United States so that I’ll have a chance to win. I’ll definitely be buying the 80th Monopoly Anniversary game with high hopes of winning big! What are your thoughts?
