Monopoly is one of America’s favorite board games, and it’s definitely among the most exciting ones to play. If you’re like me, you can’t get enough of it! It’s become so popular that they’ve released countless monopoly special editions, a lot of which even the most adamant Monopoly fan probably didn’t know existed! If you love this versatile, fun family/ party game of strategy, turns, and real estate, you’re going to want to get one, if not all, of these special versions!
1. Monopoly Junior
Perfect for someone with kids or a lot of young players, this edition is a must-have! The playing pieces are all uber-cute cartoonish characters, and the game is much more bright and simplistic than the original. Everyone will be dying to get their hands on “the Candy Store!” It’s sure to keep the kid’s attention!
2. Star Wars
For the dual Star Wars and Monopoly fan, this one is an incredibly inventive Monopoly version! Not only is everything Monopoly put into Star Wars terms (i.e. “credits” instead of normal Monopoly money), but the entire board is a different shape! Play as your favorite hero or join the dark side, whichever you do you’re gonna really enjoy this version!
3. Game of Thrones
The hit HBO show comes to the realm of board games! Yes, there is a Game of Thrones version of Monopoly! Instead of “Chance” and “Community Chest,” grab cards that say “Valar Morghulis” and “The Iron Throne!” With some of the most ornate tokens of any version, die-hard Thrones fans NEED this version!
4. Monopoly U-Build
This edition allows you to take hexagonal pieces and create your own Monopoly city! It has a lot of the same elements as traditional monopoly with new additions such as skyscrapers and hazard locations!
5. Monopoly Electronic Banking
A more modern twist to the classic game, Monopoly Electronic Banking edition utilizes things like debit cards and a card reader!
As one of the most successful and popular video game companies, it’s not a surprise that there’s a Nintendo version of Monopoly. No need to pick up the controllers for this one, just grab one of your favorite character tokens and go!
With the release of Infinity War, the Avengers have been on the forefront of a lot of people’s minds. Keep the excitement going with Avengers Monopoly! This board is also pretty special, as it utilizes the iconic “A” symbol from Stark Tower.
For the religious, Bibleopoly is a “Biblical game of fun and faith!” With spaces such as Nazareth, Bethlehem, and Jerusalem, this one is a perfect way to bring your religion and fun together in one!
Got bacon? If you and your friends are major bacon fans, this one is perfect for you! With hilarious spaces like “pork belly tax” and passing “sizzle” to collect $200, Baconopoly is sure to bring ALL the laughs (and the bacon cravings).
For the times you DON’T want to include the kids, there’s Sexopoly! Here, you’ll purchase businesses to try and make the most profit within the… adult industry. This is definitely one of the less known monopoly special editions!
