First-ever promotion on a Bored Ape NFT

Everyone who buys an Ape-Opoly has a chance to win an exclusive Bored Ape NFT. This is the first time in history that you can get a Bored Ape NFT at a promotional prize.

Anthony Esposito, President of Imagination Gaming, said:

The Bored Ape community has major mainstream appeal beyond the NFT space, and Ape-Opoly is bringing the brand to an even broader base with a game Bored Ape owners and fans alike can enjoy.

A cultural phenomenon

Despite launching as recently as last year, Bored Ape Yacht Club has established itself as a cultural phenomenon. There are many high-profile individuals and celebrities among the owners of the 10,000 BAYC NFTs in existence. They have the rights to the intellectual property of their Bored Ape NFT character.

The new game features works of art of 22 memorable BAYC NFTs, created in collaboration with members of the community. A few of them are property of famous CryptoPunk rapper and renowned NFT collector Spottie WiFi, who commented:

It’s dope how Ape-Opoly was really built by the community for the community. I can’t wait to see our Apes within the game and enjoyed by other fans.

You can now pre-order Ape-Opoly for $50 at Ape-Opoly.com. The first games will prospectively ship in October this year.
