Hey there, gamer! It’s time to take a break from the game console and share your love for Animal Crossing: New Horizons with your family and friends gathered around this fun and exciting Animal Crossing Edition Monopoly Game. Customized to the super-popular game from Nintendo, it brings you villager tokens and new ways to play, with collecting and world-building and of course… bells. Roll the special die to see what surprises await you under every Animal Crossing-themed card. There’s also a Nook’s Cranny die that determines which type of resources can be sold. Play and watch as your island grows into something amazing! 2 to 4 players. Ages 8 and up.
In this Animal Crossing Edition Monopoly Game, kids and adults can enjoy island life and immerse themselves in the colorful and creative world of Animal Crossing: New Horizons. After your first trip around the board, you choose a Skill card with an ability you can use throughout the game. Moving around the board with custom tokens inspired by the video game, you complete island tasks and meet other characters. Instead of buying properties and paying rent, you collect bugs, fish, fossils, and fruit. You can also stop at Nook’s Cranny and cash in Bells to buy decorations. These decorations are worth Nook Miles, and the player with the most Nook Miles wins the game!
Includes gameboard, 4 character tokens, 4 Skill cards, 35 Decoration cards, 14 Chance cards, 14 Nook Miles cards, 160 Resource chips, 40 Five-Bell coins, 54 Bell coins, 40 player markers, a numbered die, a Nook’s Cranny die, a label sheet, and game rules.
According to Entertainment Earth, the Animal Crossing: New Horizons version of Monopoly is planned for August (though some have had early luck at Walmart). Pricing is set at $24.99.
