There’s been a Nintendo-themed Monopoly board game for a number of years, but frankly, it was just regular Monopoly with some different properties, and some rather hard to identify metal tokens. Video game fans will definitely want to to grab this new edition of the board game which is a much better representation of the Mario universe.

…take this pipe wrench. To add to the ever growing number of Monopoly and Clue variants out there, it is now The Legend of Zelda’s turn. Truly a link to the past.

Hasbro Wants to Replace all the Monopoly Tokens
Growing up, each time I played Monopoly there was a near brawl over who got to be the car. I mean, no one in their right mind wanted to be the shoe or thimble. Back in 2013, the lame iron was replaced with a cat, and now Hasbro is getting set to replace all your Monopoly tokens with new ones.
