Originally based in Atlantic City, the board game seeks to reflect even more South Jersey culture.
MONOPOLY ‘South Jersey Shore Edition’ is in development in collaboration with Hasbro and game company Top Trumps USA. Scheduled for release in June 2023, the game includes a South Jersey-themed plaza, community chest, chance playing cards, and money.

To capture the essence of the region, businesses and established South Jersey businesses and non-profits are seeking public endorsements to replace the perennial board game’s famous Atlantic City plaza.
“South Jersey has an incredibly unique identity as a ‘family fun place,'” Brooke Gorman, Top Trumps USA representative said“From the bustling nightlife to the beautiful beaches, boardwalks and everything in between, we’re thrilled to portray exactly what visitors and residents love about the coast.”
Last week, a press conference was held at the Cape May County Zoo, featuring the Mr. Monopoly mascot and life-size game cards, announcing upcoming local versions of the game, and soliciting public input.
General posts and business inquiries can be sent to email@example.com for consideration.
Earlier this month, Hasbro and Top Trumps USA released the “Monopoly Main Line Edition”. It pays homage to suburban Philadelphia by featuring some of Montgomery County’s attractions and landmarks. The companies had previously solicited public input on the project.
Top Trump partnered with Hasbro in 2020 to begin releasing city-specific versions of Monopoly. American towns and cities that have been featured so far include Brooklyn, Palm Springs, San Antonio, and the Hamptons. A Pittsburgh version is also in the works.
Once released, The “South Jersey Shore Edition” of MONOPOLY will be available at retailers such as CVS and Amazon, as well as online.
