If you are a die-hard fan of the popular television program The Simpsons there is a new product that you and family are sure to enjoy. This great idea combines the excitement of playing board games with your family and friends with your favorite television cartoon characters. Simpsons Monopoly is a collectible version of the immensely popular classic game that will have you and your group laughing and playing for hours at a time. This new edition features all of the characters and locations in Springfield that fans have come to know and love.
The game comes with six pewter tokens that are fashioned in the shapes of some of our favorite characters; Homer, Bart, Jebidiah Springfield, Blinky, Kang, and Santa’s Little Helper. In addition, there are four more collectible tokens that can be purchased separately. The plot for the game involves a monorail system that is coming to Springfield. Of course, this means that everyone is now attempting to buy up all the individual properties appearing in the Simpson Monopoly game, so that the monorail stations and stops can be built on their property. Instead of the original Atlantic City properties that are usually seen in the Parker Brothers classic version, once again this collectible version takes liberties and renames them. Fans will quickly recognize the Springfield landmarks like Moe’s, the Kwik-E Mart and the Springfield Nuclear Power Plant. Even the play money that comes with the game is designed to pay homage to the Simpsons.
For those of you who may prefer the board games that have combined a bit of the newer technology there is a version that will delight you as well. You can use the Simpsons Electronic Banking Monopoly game and enjoy the same type of fun but in a faster and more convenient form. This version is going to be familiar to anyone who has played a game of electronic Monopoly in the past. The biggest difference is that the properties and characters will be from the Simpsons television show.
