What is the World of Women Galaxy Monopoly game?
World of Women has partnered with Hasbro and WS Game Company to launch a Monopoly game. The upcoming World of Women Galaxy Monopoly game will be exclusively available to WoW and WoWG holders.
“Partnering with a historical brand like Monopoly is an incredible opportunity for our collective and community,” said Yam Karkai, WoW co-founder and artist. “As the WoW franchise continues to grow, we are honoured and thrilled to be in business with a category-leader like Monopoly for World of Women Galaxy.”
Initially, World of Women will drop the Monopoly game as an NFT. Later, NFT holders can redeem the digital asset for a physical version of the limited-edition board game. WS Game Company will manufacture and distribute all physical board games.
“Joining forces with another female-led business on an initiative in a historically male-dominated industry is a great opportunity to ensure equal representation across multiple industries,” said Kerry Addis, co-owner and VP of Product Development, WS Game Company.
What does this mean for the NFT industry?
World of Women’s latest partnership is a first-of-its-kind for the NFT industry. Already, some of the biggest brands across industries have forayed into the NFT space, including sports, fashion, entertainment, and more.
Now, WS Game Company, founded in 2000, is a major competitor in the board game space. An authorized Hasbro licensee, it has produced a range of premium games for all generations. This includes Monopoly, Scrabble, Clue, Chutes and Ladders, and Risk, to name a few. So, WS Game Company’s entry into the NFT space spells big things for the industry as a whole.
As Addis said, “The partnership not only marks the growth of NFTs in the consumer products space but opens up endless new digital-first possibilities for the board game industry as well.”
