The new version of Monopoly: Ghostbusters Edition from Hasbro is here!
The updated version of the Ghostbusters-themed board game is now available at most major retailers across the country for $29.99. Listings of the game are also now live on Amazon.
Players of this new version of Monopoly: Ghostbusters Edition team up to battle Slimer, Stay Puft, and other supernatural entities to save New York City
Featuring scenes, characters, tokens, and artwork based on the original 1984 Ghostbusters movie, the new version of the game let players travel through New York City while trying to win Ghostbusting contracts.
When a player lands on a Supernatural Entity space, everyone in the game has to join forces to battle Slimer, Stay Puft, Library Ghost, or Vinz Clortho to save the city. Also, players with a color set can add Ghost Traps, then eventually upgrade and buy Containment Units. As with most editions of Monopoly, the last player with petty cash when all other players have gone bankrupt wins.
This version of the game comes with 6 different tokens. Fans can play as iconic gadgets and accessories found in the first Ghostbusters film, including PKE Meter, Proton Pack, Ecto Goggles, Radio, Dana Barrett’s Cello, and Janine Melnitz’s Glasses.
It also comes with 22 Contract cards, 32 Roaming Vapor cards, 32 Ghost Traps, a Ghost Trap card holder, 12 Containment Units, 2 dice, a pack of petty cash, and a game guide. It requires two 1.5V AAA alkaline batteries. Demo batteries are included in the package.
The original version of Monopoly: Ghostbusters Edition was released in May 2016 by USAopoly. Like the new one, the original is also inspired by the 1984 Ghostbusters movie. Its gameplay is similar to the updated version, but the new one has a much cooler design, artwork, characters, and tokens. The original Monopoly: Ghostbusters Edition currently sells for $50-$55 on Amazon.
