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
