Disney has launched several Monopoly board games themed after some of our favorite Disney franchises. However, this new edition has us seeing stars as it’s themed after our favorite galaxy far, far away. In celebration of the upcoming second season of the Disney+ series “The Mandalorian,” the company has released an entire board game themed after the hit TV show.
The second season of “The Mandalorian” doesn’t premiere until October 30. Although, you can get this new game today on Amazon! The game, inspired by the live-action TV series, offers players the ability to play as their favorite characters from the show. This includes the Mandalorian, Cara Dune, IG-11, or Kuiil. Additionally, each character comes with a special Character card telling of their special abilities.
When a player passes or lands on The Child’s space, (the character who fans call “Baby Yoda”) they can take the Child token and use their character’s ability plus The Child’s unique ability at the same time! Similar to the series, the game also includes Imperial Enemies–that is, in the form of Stormtrooper, Death Trooper, and Moff Gideon enemy tokens. All of which–can change gameplay and lead to battles. Be warned, if an Imperial enemy gets The Child, the game’s over.
Those who are familiar with the classic version of the game, you’re probably used to purchasing properties along the game board. But in this version of the game, players can buy hideouts instead and earn imperial credits by charing other players rent!
The game was originally meant to be released October 1. However, it seems Amazon has been able to make the game available this week through a pre-release window. Currently, the game can be purchased for $39.99.
