This Chinese New Year, it’s time to roll the dice and dive into the year of the wood dragon! And what better way to do this than with a fun round (or three) of Monopoly and a Lunar New Year Celebration Edition at that?
Swap your usual silver tokens for jade-coloured ones, get a turbo boost with the flashy 3D Zodiac Wheel spinner, and work your way to buy shops like the Toy Shop and Tea Shop. Besides the usual fun that your regular Monopoly board brings, with this limited edition version, players can score good fortune through the Fortune cards and collect Hongbao cards.
The winner is the one with the most money in their wallet, which can be earned through other players dropping into the shops you’ve purchased. Suitable for ages eight and up, it’s a great family game or even as a gift, embodying the spirit of the dragon – intelligence and boldness.
What makes this edition so unique?
- Lunar New Year Theme (Dragon): As previously mentioned, this edition embraces the year of the Wood Dragon and is in line with Chinese New Year, so expect red everything!
- Not your average tokens: Your usual silver tokens are now jade-coloured and festival-inspired. Meet Dragon, Bamboo, Yu Ruyi, Firecrackers, Tanggu, and Lion Dance Head as your game pieces.
- Find good fortune: To grow the size of your wallet, purchase shops instead of the usual properties and collect gifts.
- Spin the Zodiac Wheel: Place your token on your Zodiac animal, roll the dice, and spin the wheel for a chance to win or lose money.
- Share your wealth: Show how generous you are with Hongbao cards – players can collect money from the Hongbao cards they’ve been gifted.
The Monopoly Lunar New Year Celebration Edition Board Game (RM125.90) is now available at Hasbro Shopee Official Stores and Toys“R”Us stores.
