Monopoly is most definitely one of the most famous board games of all times, and there’s been tons of special editions over the years. There’s already been a few featuring Nintendo characters, including The Legend of Zelda. And the latest one, Monopoly Gamer, features characters from the Super Mario series (despite the extremely generic name!).
Instead of the standard Monopoly tokens, you have Super Mario characters, who happen to have their own special powers within gameplay. Characters include Mario, Princess Peach, Yoshi, and Donkey Kong… but also Bowser, that you need to defeat at the end. There’s also some boss battles, it seems!
Naturally, some elements stay the same: there’s Properties to buy, and there’s lots of money (Coins) to collect. As you can imagine, it’s the player with the highest score at the end who wins the game.
Here’s the main features:
- Features Nintendo’s Super Mario characters
- Coins replace Monopoly money
- Power-up die activates special abilities
- Battle legendary Bosses
The Monopoly Gamer set includes the following:
- 4 Nintendo Character tokens (Mario, Princess Peach, Yoshi, and Donkey Kong)
- 4 Character cards
- 4 Reminder cards
- 8 Boss cards
- 16 Title Deed cards
- 1 Numbered die
- 1 Power -up die, 90 coins
- game guide
But that’s not all: there’s also some Figure Packs, that include several additional figures (with their own unique powers):
- Diddy Kong
- Fire Mario
- Tanooki Mario
Each one of those packs include a Character token, a Character card, and a Character card.
