Classic Volkswagen Monopoly Becomes a Reality
Finally, a board game just for us air-cooled Volkswagen lovers
We all are familiar with the famous board game Monopoly. It originally came out way back in 1935 by the Parker Brothers, and over the years, the game has basically remained the same, although the graphics have been up-dated, and over 275 million games have been sold. In recent times, Hasbro, the game’s current maker, has licensed special editions or versions of the game using different themes and look of the board, but no matter what, Monopoly still plays the same. So finally, those of us who love older Volkswagens, the ones that used the classic air-cooled engine, will now have a special Monopoly all to their own. Coming out this October 6, a brand new Monopoly will be released that is right up our alley. Called Monopoly — Classic Volkswagen Collector’s Edition. This limited edition board game has been custom designed and tailored to Volkswagen enthusiasts — us! This idea was the brainstorm of Bob and Audrey Molinar of Molinar Enterprises, in southern California, and has taken years to come up with a working design that both Volkswagen of Germany, and Hasbro would agree to. Coming Sunday, October 6, Molinar Enterprises will debut this game at Nick’s Burgers, 1712 W. Orangethrope Ave., Fullerton, CA 92833, during the monthly DKP car club’s cruise night. At that event, you will be able to see and touch the new game, and purchase one for your very own. Molinar Enterprises will be there from 1:00pm on, and will be happy to share with you how the new VW board game was designed. So if you are as crazy about board games as we are, and love anything old Volkswagen, this is your chance to get one of the first games to be released.
UPDATE...... Sunday, October 6 will be the first day these games will be sold (at Nick's Burgers in Fullerton). However, from that day on (October 7), there will be a new web site established that you can purchase them on-line for any U.S. and Canada sales. As soon as we have the web site's URL, we will announce it.
