The Ford Mustang has been selected to be one of the pieces in Monopoly Empire — an offshoot of the classic Monopoly board game created more than a century ago.
Ford said that Hasbro has selected the Mustang to be the racecar in the new edition of Monopoly Empire, which is on sale now.
Monopoly Empire differs from the Classic Monopoly, whereas players buy, sell, and trade their favorite brands to create their own fantasy empire and experience the thrill of owning it all.
“We are thrilled that the Ford Mustang is one of the tokens,” Hasbro said in a statement. “Like Monopoly, it’s an iconic brand loved by kids and families and a fun twist on the car token in the Classic Monopoly game.”
Monopoly Empire features 22 brands that are relevant to kids and families ranging from Universal Parks & Resorts to Polaroid and Ford. The tokens include the Xbox controller, Ford Mustang, PUMA shoe, Caterpillar excavator, Transformers head and Wilson Tennis Racquet.
Saturday, March 19th was World Monopoly Day. Fans from around the world celebrated its 81st birthday of the iconic game at events planned in several cities around the world and through social media.
