Monopoly (stylized MONOPOLY) is a board game designed by Lizzie Magie and Charles Darrow which was first released in 1935. Currently published by Hasbro, a Godzilla edition of the game entitled MONOPOLY: Godzilla Monster Edition, or simply MONOPOLY: Godzilla, was announced on February 20, 2020,[1] alongside a similarly themed version of Jenga.[2] A Japanese-exclusive Ultraman Monopoly was previously released in 2004.

Description

Demolish the competition in a city-terrorizing twist on the classic board game with MONOPOLY®: Godzilla. Begin the invasion by buying, selling and trading locations like Monster Island, Goro’s Workshop, and Kitakami Lake and take over the board with Facilities and Bases. Custom sculpted tokens of giants such as Mothra, Godzilla, King Ghidorah, and Mechagodzilla easily impose on anything in their path![3]

Trivia

  • Some of the monster incarnations used to represent locations on the board are inaccurate to the films in which they appeared.
    • An image of the Second Generation Anguirus from Godzilla vs. Gigan is used to depict Iwato Island, which in fact appeared in Godzilla Raids Again.
    • The Second Generation Varan from Destroy All Monsters is pictured on the space for Kitakami Lake, the origin place of the first Varan in his debut film.
    • The Second Generation Manda from Destroy All Monsters is used to depict Mu, which actually appeared in Atragon alongside the first Manda.
    • The Second Generation Gorosaurus from Destroy All Monsters is used on the space for Mondo Island, which appeared in King Kong Escapes as the location of the first Gorosaurus.
    • An image of the Heisei Godzilla is featured on the Monster Island space, despite appearing exclusively in the Showa series.
  • MONOPOLY: Godzilla uses several irregular names for the locations it features.
    • Kiganjima from Godzilla vs. Megaguirus is redundantly called "Kiganjima Island," despite the jima portion of its name translating to "island."
    • The Gotengo is referred to by the outdated name "Atragon," originating from the American dub and title of Atragon.
    • Lake Ashi, the real-world lake from which Biollante first emerged in her rose form, is erroneously called "Lake Ashino."
