Hasbro To Stop Making Monopoly!
U.K. History

Hasbro will no longer make any more games including Monopoly from the third quarter of this year.
Fear not, Monopoly is not finishing, but Hasbro has sold it's last two manufacturing plants in East Longmeadow, Massachusetts, in the USA and Waterford in Ireland, which together employ 510 people, to Cartamundi, the playing card manufacturer based in Turnhout, Antwerp province. They will continue to manufacture games on behalf of Hasbro, and I would gather Winning Moves (Europe) and USAopoly (USA).
Read more about it here.
A few years ago, I had the chance to go to the East Longmeadow plant and seeing a custom version being manufactured for USAopoly. Also there was an extensive collection of Monopoly games from past including some very old versions.

Albert Veldhuis / Muurkrant Website

World of Monopoly is already proud to be adding all of Albert's hard work on Monopoly exclusively to the website, but this takes lots of time.
So, World of Monopoly is proud to announce that we are exclusively hosting the last version of Albert's website as it was until all the information is transferred and integrated into the main website when it will shut down.
As well as a link from the menu system, you can go directly to this section of the website at www.worldofmonopoly.org.
The website has not been altered at all so if any links do not work or causes problems, World of Monopoly takes no blame, but please contact me here with the subject line "Albert's website" and I will try to sort the problem out.
