Forget Microsoft and Sony, Nintendo is a Monopoly
May 14th, 2007
All of your favorite classic Nintendo characters have now been memorialized in the Monopoly: Nintendo Collector’s Edition board game from Parker Brothers.
The game features special pewter Nintendo tokens including Mario’s cap, Link’s iron boots, Donkey Kong’s barrel, a Hylian shield, a Koopa shell and an NES controller. The game board is loaded with references to everything from Mario to Kirby to Zelda to Samus and more.
Even the Community Chest and Chance cards have been cleverly “Nintendized” with phrases like “Hit top of flagpole. Collect $20.” and “Turn off your system before saving your game. Go back 3 spaces.”
It’s definitely worth a look for that Nintendo fanboy (or girl) in your life.
