Jump on your BMX, slip into your Ghostbusters overalls, stick on some Huey Lewis and brave the Upside Down as Stranger Things meets Monopoly…
With the third season of the Netflix show breaking records, what better time to combine people’s favourite programme with people’s favourite board game.
Monopoly creators, Hasbro, have given the classic family (fun) game a makeover, immersing players in the fictional world of Hawkins. Houses and hotels have been replaced with hideouts and forts (which glow in the dark), and Chance cards have become Blinking Light cards.
Even the box is incredibly cool, resembling the classic 1984 wooden surround TV set as seen in the show - I’d buy it just for that!
The game description says: "In this Monopoly game inspired by the Netflix Original Series, Stranger Things, Will Byers has gone missing.
"Players choose an 80s-inspired token or one 'ripped from the Upside Down' to move around the board trying to find him. Search the town, travel through the locations of Hawkins, and avoid getting trapped in the upside down.
“Time is running out - and the Monster is out there, somewhere, looking for you...
"The game includes Walkie-Talkie and Blinking Lights cards, replacing Community Chest and Chance cards, while Forts and Hideouts replace houses and hotels.
"Who will win the game and avoid getting trapped in the Upside Down?"
The normal pieces that you use to move around the board have been replaced with other objects such as walkie talkies, a sheriff's hat and a cassette tape - so you better be prepared to squabble as everyone tries to get their new favourite…
The game is for 2-4 players (who should all be aged 14 or over, apparently) and includes the game board, eight tokens, 28 Title Deed cards, 16 Walkie-Talkie cards, 16 Blinking Lights cards, 32 forts, 12 hideouts, two dice, a money pack and the all-important game guide.
It’s currently available on Amazon for the bargain price of just £18.99 down from its £29.99 RRP and even comes with free delivery!
