Phuket Monopoly game creators need your help with token designs

Published

 on 

Phuket is set to get its own version of the popular game MONOPOLY and its creators want your help with ideas for the specialised tokens. ‘MONOPOLY: Phuket Edition’ was announced last month which will see the street art on the board game replaced with that of famous places around Thailand’s famous tourist destination. Such art will include beaches, hotels, shops, markets and other popular attractions.

Jennifer Lau from Winning Moves UK, is producing the game under official license from Monopoly brand owners, Hasbro. Lau says the tokens will feature a holiday theme. The token’s departure from the original theme of wheelbarrows, boots, iron, and thimbles as well as popular sports cars and hats.

“We have had a wealth of emails and suggestions coming in for Phuket, so thank you for each and every single one of them! We are taking them all into consideration whilst putting together the design of the game.”

“We wanted to change the tokens so that they would be more suitable for an island like Phuket, where so many people like to go on holiday to.”

“There will be six themed tokens that replace the original and we want to hear your suggestions for what these tokens should be!”

Bangkok has already been featured in the Monopoly game as it came out for purchase back in 2018.

    Some suggestions:

    A jet ski
    A red Songtaew (red taxi) or TukTuk
    A palm tree
    Maybe a sunbathing lounge chair
    A coconut
    A small camera (cliche but very relevant)
    A small building with Sino-Portuguese features.
    A long tail boat
    Patong Tower Hotel/Condo

    This will not work.
    When you put houses and hotels on property in the traditional game your wealth increases.
    If you do that in Phuket you will go broke.
