Monopoly Empire Features Ducati

Forgot the wheelbarrow, thimble or Scottie dog, and grab the Ducati 1199 Panigale. This will be an option in Hasbro’s newest edition of the beloved Monopoly game, titled Monopoly Empire.

Ducati is one of 22 of the world’s most prestigious brands represented in Monopoly Empire. This game will speak to true fans of the Ducati brand – the Ducatisti – who can use an 1199 Panigale token to move through the game, and buy and sell these brands (instead of property) to take over the “empire” and win.

Ducati not only holds the rank of being the only motorcycle manufacturer in the game, it is also the only Italian brand represented in Monopoly Empire. In the game, the Bologna-based brand occupies the previous and expensive “Boardwalk” square.

Speaking of the Monopoly Empire, Ducati says its “inclusion in the game underlines the strength of this unique motorcycle brand, which has become an ambassador of Italian-made quality and a global icon of excellence and success. Supporting Ducati’s technical excellence will now be more fun than ever and drive Ducati to further success on Monopoly’s gaming battlefield.

Besides the gold Ducati 1199 Panigale, the other five tokens included in Monopoly Empire are from some of the world’s most known brands: Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, a bottle of Coca-Cola, an Xbox controller, a Paramount Pictures clapperboard, and McDonald’s French fries.

Other brands included, but not available as tokens, are Beats by Dr. Dre, Carnival, eBay, Electronic Arts, Fender, Hasbro, Intel, JetBlue, Nerf, Nestlé, Samsung, Spotify, Transformers, Under Armour, and X Games Yahoo!, among others.

About Monopoly Empire

Drawing inspiration from the on-skyscraper advertising typical of all major cities, players display the brands they own on billboards upon their own empire tower. The first player to put their brand’s billboard advertising at the top of the tower wins the game, but unforeseen hazards such as a sudden push for dominance from competitors or a stock market collapse provides additional and realistic challenges. With the concept of property purchase and construction of houses an hotels discarded in the latest version, most players will be able to finish the new game in under 30 minutes.
