Toronto is getting its own monopoly game and you can roll for iconic locations in the 6ix

Get your dice ready, because a new board game is coming to town, and it’s all about the 6ix. Monopoly: Toronto Edition is a unique take on the classic game that features iconic locations and brands across the city.

The limited-edition product is presented by ProAction Cops & Kids and supports area charities such as the SickKids Foundation.

The game features a range of landmarks, attractions and more exclusive to Toronto. Forget Park Place and Marvin Gardens – you can ride for the CN Tower, Fairmont Royal York Hotel, Ripley’s Aquarium, Nathan Philips Square, and more.

“For generations, the Monopoly board game has been a fun and entertaining tool for families and friends,” Mayor John Tory said in a news release. “It’s exciting to see the iconic and unique features of our great city displayed on such an iconic game. Thank you to everyone involved in this project to support 30 charities in the Greater Toronto Area.”

Monopoly: Toronto Edition is currently available for pre-order, and you can only buy it online or through select small businesses. The expected delivery date for the product is the end of September 2022.

This isn’t the first time the city has appeared in a board game. A spin-off Monopoly game dubbed “Toronto-opoly” was released at Walmart in 2019. However, Monopoly: Toronto Edition is actually licensed by entertainment company Hasbro Inc., so you know it’s the real deal.

Will there be a “get out of traffic” card? A pawn in the shape of a raccoon? You’ll have to play to find out!
