WASHINGTON -- A new game is scheduled to hit the shelves of base exchanges Dec. 1 when the Army and Air Force Exchange Service introduces Air Force Edition Monopoly.

“This is a one-of-a-kind board game dedicated to the men and women of the United States Air Force,” said Chris Burton, of the exchange service.

According to the game box, “You’ve been appointed a joint air-component commander and must assemble your forces to deploy and fight the enemy. As you accumulate air expeditionary squadrons and wings, remember the words of the Air Force chief of staff, ‘Victory belongs to those who can most quickly collect intelligence, communicate information and bring capabilities to bear against targets around the globe.’”

In classic Monopoly risk-taking, deal-making style, players compete to control aircraft, rocket and satellite properties, Burton said. Instead of traditional houses and hotels, the Air Force edition features air expeditionary squadrons and air expeditionary wings.

“Also, the chance and community chest cards have been changed to airman’s legacy and commander’s call cards, with comments referring to the Air Force,” Burton said.

Players navigate the board with a B-2 Spirit, an air traffic control tower, the F/A-22 Raptor, a satellite, an unmanned aerial vehicle or a C-17 Globemaster III. Even the money is custom made to complement the Air Force theme.

The Air Force edition comes after the success of the Army Monopoly game in August 2002, Burton said.

Officials plan to stock the game for as long as customers demand the product, Burton said. Based on sales of the Army edition -- the No. 1 board game sold by AAFES -- Burton said the Air Force edition is expected to be as successful or better.

Customers can purchase the game online at www.aafes.com starting Nov. 18 and in stores beginning Dec. 1.
