Monopoly Gamer: Combining Board Game Fun With Nintendo Characters

Hasbro has a new board game soon to be released: Monopoly Gamer!  It's a spin on the traditional Monopoly game to include a few of your favourite Nintendo characters and objects. Princess Peach, Mario, Yoshi and Donkey Kong are the characters to choose from. Special power ups are available to be used depending on what comes up on the rolled dice.

Mr. K and I spent some time playing it on the weekend and it was a fun change.  You move around the board and are able to buy properties; you collect coins (as you pass go and also dropped coins from other players) and another twist is that as you pass go, you battle some of the legendary bosses from the Mario world.

Instead of the traditional paper money you are accustomed to, Monopoly Gamer features coins valued at 1 and 5. You can earn coins by landing on spaces with the coin box, from the dice or passing over coins that other players have dropped.
"The standard MONOPOLY GAMER Edition game will be available this August at mass market retailers for a suggested retail price of $39.99, and is for ages 8 and up. Fans can take their MONOPOLY GAMER experience to the next level with the purchase of MONOPOLY GAMER POWER PACKS (each sold separately), which include one of several Super Mario character tokens like Luigi, Boo, Rosalina, Wario, Diddy Kong and more. The POWER PACKS will be available this August for a suggested retail price of $4.99 each."
Keep your eyes out for this new game - the perfect addition for any Mario fan in your life!
