VIDEO GAME, MEET TABLETOP

Mario. Donkey Kong. Boss Battles. Power-ups. Pipes and castles and Thwomps. All your Nintendo favorites are here… minus the console. This special Monopoly set puts a whole new spin on the word “gamer” by adding beloved Nintendo characters and elements to the classic family board game. Sure, you can still pass Go as you travel around the board, buying and selling properties. Only instead of cash you’ll be collecting coins (duh). And the properties? They’re straight outta the Mushroom Kingdom. Would you like to own Yoshi’s Hill? Now you can!

Play as Mario, Princess Peach, Yoshi, or Donkey Kong. Or even Bowser, the exclusive Character Token that is only available in this premium Collector’s Edition set! All the characters have special abilities that are activated as you move around the custom board – and if that isn’t enough, you’ll also be able to roll the Power-up Die for an additional edge. And you’ll need it, because you’ll have to complete all 8 Boss Battles to win. You can even choose to buy a Figure Pack with your game, which will give you an additional player token with its own unique abilities to add to your set. Figure Packs come with either Wario, Luigi, Toad, Boo, Rosalina, Diddy Kong, Fire Mario, or the adorable Tanooki Mario. Which one will you get?

Lured to their demise by the same thing that lures us most of the parties and company meetings we attend: the promise of delicious Cake!

Jim Henson’s The Dark Crystal Board Game

Jim Henson absolutely knocked it out of the park with The Dark Crystal. He created a classic story while absolutely terrifying us as children with how some of these creatures look. If that doesn’t make you remember a movie, nothing will. Now you can relive those memories with the board game based off the movie. Just, hopefully, without the hiding behind the couch the first time you saw a skeksis.
