Monopoly Boise Edition will be available this Thursday, October 26, 2023 at 8 a.m. at the Boise Metro Chamber Gift Shop and Visit Boise Information Center (conveniently located within the Chamber's headquarters at 1101 W. Front St., Suite 100, Boise, Idaho 83702). The game is priced at $40 and you can get an extra 10% off that on First Thursdays.
In February 2023, Top Trumps USA announced they would be creating a Boise version of the popular game, and asked residents for feedback nominating locations they'd like to see featured. The Boise Metro Chamber and Visit Boise supported the endeavor. At that time, the Chamber's president Emeritus, Bill Connors said, “A Boise version of the beloved MONOPOLY game is a fantastic opportunity to bring the community together, and it is a reflection of the vibrancy of our city. From the Greenbelt to the Foothills and everything in between, let’s work together to make this game emblematic of what it means to live and work in the City of Trees.” Both the Boise Metro Chamber and Visit Boise are featured on the center area of the Boise Monopoly game board.
Top Trumps USA website offers the following description of the game:
Welcome to The City of Trees, beautiful Boise, Idaho. Whatever kind of entertainment suits you, this Boise edition of MONOPOLY, the classic board game, has it all. Enjoy a summer day strolling The Boise River Greenbelt as you stop by the picturesque parks that make up The Ribbon of Jewels. If you're a water lover, lose your shoes and grab an inner tube, and float the Boise River, with a life jacket of course! If two wheels are your thing, race down any of the numerous mountain bike trails maintained by Boise Parks and Recreation. Did we say two wheels? Head on over to High Desert Harley-Davidson and check out all the latest models, and zoom uphill to the mountains while enjoying the postcard-worthy sunsets the Treasure Valley is known for. Grab dinner at Bardenay Restaurant and Distillery, then head on down to Zoo Boise and say hello to the giraffes! If watching live sports is your thing, Boise has you covered with sporting venues and events dotting the city all year round, but be sure to do your part to help Boise stay beautiful, by taking public transportation with Valley Regional Transit. Pick up Chance and Community Chest cards for unexpected prizes and penalties, but watch out for those tax spaces! Whether you're a local or just visiting, now's the perfect time to explore all that this beautiful city has to offer, with the Boise edition of MONOPOLY.

The most popular board game in the world, has announced its best edition yet: Monopoly Boise Edition!
(OK, we may be a little biased that it's the best edition yet.) The Boise Metro Chamber is very excited that Boise was selected as one of a small group of only 25 cities chosen to have their own version of the board game. "It's a chance to show off the coolest city in the western United States," said Boise Metro Chamber President & CEO Bill Connors at the official announcement ceremony held in the Grove Plaza on Wednesday, February 8th. The event was streamed live on the Boise Metro Chamber Facebook page.
Between now and October 1st, Boise residents can suggest which locations they would like to see featured on the board by submitting it to the official Boise MONOPOLY email: Boise@toptrumps.com.
Top Trumps, manufacturers of the official Boise version of MONOPOLY under license from global branded entertainment leader Hasbro, say the game will be on shelves starting in October of this year. Aaron Green, a representative from Top Trumps, said: “We want to ensure that the MONOPOLY: Boise Edition is an accurate portrayal of what locals love about their city, so we would love for everyone to get on board and send us their recommendations of what they would like to see included. Everything is up for consideration – Bogus Basin, BSU Broncos, Camel’s Back Park, the Greenbelt; we want to know your Boise favorites that must be on the board – so please get involved!”
