Another year, another Monopoly special edition – but this time, it’s a big win for dinosaur fans, as the latest edition of Monopoly – Jurassic Park Edition – features everyone’s favorite dinosaur flick, 1993’s classic Jurassic Park.
The release of this latest movie-themed edition of Monopoly is hot off the heels of a range of all-new Jurassic World dinosaur toys from Hasbro. These new releases from the brand will help build excitement for the release of the next film in the franchise – Jurassic World 3: Dominion – which, as we all know, saw its release date pushed back to 2022 due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
One of the best, unique new features of this version of Monopoly over others is the addition of a T-Rex token, which follows players around the board, causing destruction and mayhem wherever it lands, requiring players to invest in or repair fences to help protect their properties.
There are two ways the game can end – either the last remaining player to avoid bankruptcy wins, like in a regular Monopoly game – or until everyone loses once the roaming T-Rex wrecks all the properties on the board.
As well as the T-Rex token, this edition features an awesome electronic Jurassic Park gate complete with sound effects. This gate is operated by players each time they pass go, which adds a great touch to this all-new dinosaur board game from Hasbro.
You’ll also find six player tokens, each featuring a character from the original movie – with the full six consisting of Dr. Ellie Sattler, Dr. Alan Grant, John Hammond, Dr. Ian Malcolm, Lex Murphy, or Tim Murphy.
The Jurassic Park Monopoly edition board game retails from $30 and is available to buy now from Amazon.com.
