Hasbro and Panini America have announced a partnership to bring the NBA court to the iconic Monopoly board. In this new Monopoly Prizm: NBA Edition board game, players collect, trade, and compete with real Panini NBA Prizm trading cards and exclusive Monopoly parallels and inserts for NBA All-Star glory. The Monopoly Prizm: NBA Edition game will be available in North America for purchase at Target beginning April 16, 2023 and other major retailers beginning August 1, 2023.
Prizm, the most popular global NBA trading card brand from Panini America, anchors the Monopoly Prizm: NBA Edition board game and features a 90-card base set. The Monopoly Prizm will also feature special and rare Monopoly Prizm inserts and Monopoly Boardwalk parallels that can be found in Monopoly Prizm: NBA Booster Boxes designed to enhance gameplay. NBA fans will be able to collect their favorite players and prominent rookies as part of the Monopoly Prizm NBA product release.
In this Panini NBA trading card version of the classic Monopoly game, players act as their favorite NBA basketball coach to recruit superstars and top rookies for the ultimate roster. As players take their team across country to compete against the best of the best, they’ll be challenged to make savvy trades to turn up the heat on competition and even their own team’s abilities on the court! Players will DRAFT their squad featuring their favorite NBA players, TRADE cards to build and change their team throughout the game and lastly – and unique to Monopoly – COMPETE in 1:1 matches to win All-Star Cards as they pass go. Instead of buying properties, players try to take control of NBA games and collect bonus points when opponents land on them. To earn more points, players compare the stats on their Panini NBA cards when they compete in Playmaker Challenges and All-Star Contests. In the end, the player with the most points wins!
