Welcome to Keepsake Village
Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments MONOPOLY Game
Hallmark Keepsake Ornament MONOPOLY Game
Coming soon, you can gather the family ’round for a friendly game of capitalistic entrepreneurialism— right in the heart of Keepsake Village.
Introducing the first-ever Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments Monopoly game, available in July.
Hallmark Historian Samantha Bradbeer, curator of the game, says the project came with a few fun challenges. The biggest? Deciding which of
the thousands of ornaments in Hallmark’s deep archives to feature.
“I decided to focus on first in series, as it would allow fans to see some of their all-time favorites, while capturing nearly 50 years of Keepsake Ornament history,” Samantha says.
The game features over 40 first in series ornaments. Players move about the board, visiting locations in Keepsake Village—from Puppy Love Groomers to
Tin Locomotive Railroad to Frosty Friends Ice Rink to Nostalgic Houses and Shops Blvd. The property spaces feature ornaments, as does the play money.
For many, getting out the Monopoly game is a holiday tradition, so creating a Keepsake Ornament edition was a natural fit.
As with any good board game, there were a lot of players, including many in the Keepsake studio. Hallmark also collaborated on the game with Hasbro and USAopoly. Available in July.
