Monopoly, the Parker Brothers game of wheeling and dealing in the world of real estate is set to get a national face lift, replacing the popular Atlantic City street names with landmarks from all over the country, and Atlanta’s in on the bid.
From now through May 12, you can surf over to the Monopoly website and vote for one of three Atlanta landmarks : Peachtree Street, Centennial Olympic Park and Stone Mountain. Dubbed the “Here and Now” edition, the new multi-city variation of Monopoly will debut on shelves this fall. Right now, Centennial Olympic Park is leading in the current standing for Atlanta with 45% (as of this post), and additionally, the votes will also determine where each landmark will appear on the gameboard (Boardwalk’s the most popular). Among other changes, the railroads will be replaced by — get this — JFK in NYC, O’Hare in Chicago, LAX and Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.
