We recently told you how you can financially adopt a gargoyle from Paris’s Notre-Dame Cathedral. Having a pet stone beast in France would be cool. But if you want to own your own monsters, The Op’s latest board game will let you buy a whole bunch of them. You can purchase ghastly creatures in the all-new Monopoly: Dungeons & Dragons.
The classic RPG meets the iconic board game with Hasbro’s Monopoly: Dungeons & Dragons. Instead of buying properties, players will buy famous D&D monsters. And you’ll travel to their lairs with some pretty fantastic game pieces to find them. From the game’s official description:
“Heed the call to capture monsters from across the Forgotten Realms in Monopoly: Dungeons & Dragons! Buy, sell, and trade traditional and modern iconic and deadly monsters like the Beholder, Storm Giant, and infamous Demogorgon to nerf the competition. Six collectible tokens representing classes including Halfling Rogue, Human Fighter, Elven Ranger, and Tiefling Bard take you around the board to make discoveries, build up Expeditions and Bases, and collect custom D&D currency to become the richest adventurer and win!”
Will we role-play as our token pieces during the game? Obviously. OBVIOUSLY.
In addition to a beautiful board, the game also features 28 custom deed cards with art from Dungeons & Dragons. It also comes with: six collectible tokens, 16 “Encounters Cards” (chance cards), 16 “Treasure Cards” (community chest cards), custom Monopoly money, 32 “Expeditions” (houses), and 12 “bases” (hotels).” Designed for two to six players ages eight and up, estimated game time is at least 60 minutes. Though when everyone does all the voices it’s going to take a lot longer.
You can order your copy from The Op now for $39.99. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t still help out the Notre-Dame Cathedral. But at least these monsters will be easy to visit when you feel like seeing them.
