    Perhaps "Old News is Old", but I found this collectible online and I figured that perhaps our local Nintendo fans would be interested in this new item in Gamestop's store offer - an exclusive Gamestop edition of the Legend of Zelda-themed Monopoly board.​
    If your bag of rupees is a bit too heavy for you to handle, this board might be something to your liking - it features six cool game pieces and a Gamestop-exclusive map of Hyrule in a treasure-chest like map holder.​
    The whole set costs $39.99 and perhaps it will make the wait for the next great Zelda game all the more enjoyable, provided you have some friends you'd like to put in jail or otherwise con out of all their rupees.​

    Wherever you want me, baby.
    Would get, but nobody really likes Monopoly. They say they do, but they know deep down that they don't.

    Neat article though, thanks Foxi.

    I'm pretty sure there are ranks among them.
    Monopoly always end by flipping the table, where I come from.

    Lmao at the free parking still being an option in this version. Couldn't they have replaced it with the talking owl or something?

    So, everything is Zelda related. And then there are the completely unchanged and looking out of place "Go to Jail", "Just visiting" and "Free Parking". Kinda kills it.
    Also, surprised there is no Nintendo logo anywhere on it, neither the box nor the game itself.

    Maybe it's been changed to "go to dungeon" and "free livery stable". :P "Just visiting" doesn't have to be changed because it isn't specific. :P

    But you're right, special editions of Monopoly never change anything other than the skin. And I bet 90% of the people that do buy those special editions never actually play them, they just buy them for their collection of related merchandise.

    I seriously can't keep adding to my Video game Themed Monopoly boards. I don't play any of them and they are starting to take up space.

    You can already do that in Zelda: Four Swords and Four Swords Adventures. And it's much more fun, in my opinion. :tpi:

    Though I suppose a $39.99 board game is much cheaper than four GBAs, Link cables, game(s), and possibly a GameCube (depending which one you want to play).

    You seem to be under the impression that Gamestop made this game - they haven't. This is officially licensed by both Nintendo and Hasbro, the only difference between the usual set and the Gamestop edition is the map, which is exclusive to Gamestop's bundle. ;)

    Later this month they will also carry a Pokemon Monopoly board, it releases on the 30th. ;)
