About this deal

The story long promoted about the origins of Monopoly was that a man named Charles Darrow of Pennsylvania created it and sold it to the Parker Brothers board game manufacturer in 1935. After playing a version of The Landlord’s Game at a Quaker friend’s home, Darrow, who was unemployed during the Great Depression, decided to remake the game board, keeping the names of the Atlantic City, New Jersey, streets, as a model for his Monopoly. He made millions of dollars from his “invention.” This special themed edition of Monopoly allows players to build a galactic empire, moving around the board in ships to buy locations from the “Star Wars” films—Hoth, Tatooine, and Kashyyyk, for example. An added bonus: Players can use the Force to swap and collect extra money.

Based on the television series, this edition features “Game of Thrones” locations from the seven kingdoms as players move around the board. Instead of houses and hotels, there are holdfasts and castles, and tokens taken from the sigils of the houses in Westeros. A musical stand plays the “Game of Thrones” theme song. The “Friends” television series inspired the places and characters of this version of the game. Players move around the board as Monica, Phoebe, Rachel, Ross, Chandler, and Joey as they experience Monica and Chandler’s wedding and other iconic moments. Houses have become coffee mugs, while hotels are sofas. The Chance and Community Chest cards are named after the well-known apartments of the series—Apartment 19 and Apartment 20. Tokens include a handbag, sweater vest, pizza, chef’s hat, guitar, and dinosaur. This 50th edition of Monopoly from Parker Brothers features an anniversary token—the special Monopoly train—one of 10 tokens produced in a gold finish for the occasion. The houses and hotels are in wood as in the original version. A new organizing tray for deeds and cash was also included.

This version features space, and players buy comets, planets, star clusters, and galaxies. Planets decorate the money while the utilities are two large telescope manufacturers. The railway stations are space stations or observation domes, the Chance cards are moons, while the Community Chest cards are suns. Tokens include a lawn chair, binoculars, and telescopes. This version of Monopoly transports Disney princesses to the game board, with four Disney princess tokens and magic kingdoms to build. Each player takes on the role of a Disney princess as they travel the board buying such properties as Mulan’s Shan-Yu School and Jasmine’s Magic Carpet Ride.

But wait—there’s more to this story. Mary Pilon, a former Wall Street Journal and New York Times reporter, discovered that it was a woman who was behind one of America’s most enduring pastimes. Elizabeth “Lizzie” Magie got a patent for what was called The Landlord’s Game in 1904, and it sounds very much like Monopoly.The 60th anniversary edition was issued for the diamond celebration of the game and it includes tokens with an antique bronze finish, a 1930s version of Rich Uncle Pennybags, and a commemorative dice cup that resembles his top hat. Rich Uncle Pennybags or Mr. Monopoly, the mascot of the game, was reportedly based on J.P. Morgan. He was added to the Monopoly board in 1936, according to “The Monopoly Companion: The Players’ Guide” by Philip Orbanes. The Monopoly game has long been attributed to an unemployed man named Charles Darrow, who was said to have thought up the game in the early 1930s, sold it to the Parker Brothers in 1935, and made millions from his enormously successful creation.

I absolutely adore it! It covers all four films so be warned that it may contain very slight spoilers for TS4 regarding locations in the movie and with some details on the cards etc. It’s nothing major though and doesn’t really give anything away that hasn’t already been glimpsed in trailers and other merch.

The popular sitcom “Seinfeld” is played on the Monopoly board with the show’s unforgettable characters, Jerry, Elaine, George, and Kramer. Players draw yadda yadda yadda cards and land on Jerry’s Apartment, Monk’s Restaurant, The Chinese Restaurant, and the Non-fat Yogurt Shop. The New York City Subway and Kramer’s Central Park Carriage replace railroads. The bills include “Seinfeld” quotes, including “No soup for you.” This Monopoly game is designed to be long, from the long game board with 66 properties and only one die. The game does not end until someone owns every property. With tortoise and hare tokens, the game also does not allow auctions, but does award cash for landing on free parking. Instead of Chance cards, there are Claw cards; and instead of Community Chest cards, it’s Toy Chest cards (of course!). The money is so cute! On the 1s are Bo’s sheep, the 5s are Forky, the 10s are Bullseye, the 20s are Mr Potato Head, the 50s are Mrs Potato Head, the 100s are Duke Caboom, and of course, the 500s are Hamm!
