You've seen Disney Monopoly, .com Monopoly, and even The Simpsons Monopoly- but are you ready for Rhode Island Edition? That's right; Hasbro is creating a limited edition Rhode Island themed version of Monopoly.

Rhode Island businesses are being given the chance to sponsor the game by buying spots on the board. This edition will feature different Rhode Island companies, businesses, landmarks and more.

As for the tokens?  Well, Rhode Islanders are able to vote among 14 choices for the sixth token. When you vote, you're automatically entered to win a chance at two tickets to the Monopoly Ball. The choices for the game tokens are the Breakers Newport, the Newport Bridge, the Rhode Island State House, the Superman Building, Waterfire Providence, Towers Narragansett, Haven Brothers Diner, the Hope Seal, the Independent Man, the Quahog, Mr. Potato Head, a Sailboat, Roger Williams and the Block Island Lighthouse. The remaining five tokens are able to be purchased by sponsors.

5,000 games will be available starting in February at $35. All proceeds will go to Hasbro Children's Hospital.
