Hasbro, the parent company of Monopoly and Clue, announced the two new board games last Thursday. And unlike several editions of the board games, the Monopoly: Bridgerton Edition Game and the Clue: Bridgerton Edition Game are both rated 17+ due to the adult nature of the show. Both board games have a retail price of $27.99 and will be available for purchase this spring. Check out the descriptions and photos of the Bridgerton board games below:
Monopoly: Bridgerton Edition Game
The Monopoly: Bridgerton Edition board game lets players promenade to some wonderfully decadent places in Regency London. They must buy as many properties as they can to raise their social standing in the Ton, but should be careful with their every move as the Lady Whistledown deck can bring a scandal to their door. The last player with coins wins the game.
This Target-exclusive Monopoly board game features tokens inspired by the iconic symbols from the show, as well as gameboard spaces filled with Bridgerton locations and events, such as Danbury Ball, Hastings House, and the Boxing Gym.
Clue: Bridgerton Edition Game
In the Clue: Bridgerton Edition game, Lady Whistledown has requested the players’ assistance in uncovering the scandal of the season. One young lady or lord has been embroiled in a scandal of the heart, and it’s up to the competing players to discover who it was, how they were caught, and the location of the tryst.
Players soon realize that no one is safe from Whistledown’s pen when they draw Scandal cards. Though the cards can help them reveal clues and get closer to solving the mystery, they will also be asked to confess personal secrets, such as their first kiss. Whoever makes a correct accusation wins the game and their efforts will be revealed in Whistledown’s Society Paper.
What is Bridgerton?
Created by Chris Van Dusen and produced by Shonda Rhimes, Bridgerton is based on Julia Quinn’s novels set in the competitive world of Regency-era London’s Ton during the season when debutantes are presented at court.
Starring an ensemble cast including Adjoa Andoh, Lorraine Ashbourne, Jonathan Bailey, Ruby Barker, and Sabrina Bartlett, among many others, the eight-episode freshman run of Bridgerton premiered on Netflix in December 2020. With a viewership of 82 million households, it became the most-watched series on Netflix at the time of its premiere and remains the second most-watched series by total watch time on the streaming service.
In January 2021, Bridgerton was renewed for a second season, which is set to premiere on March 25th. In April 2021, Van Dusen revealed on Twitter that the series had additionally been renewed for a third and fourth season.
