New Edition of 'Game of Thrones Monopoly' Plays the Theme Song While You Conquer Westeros
The latest edition of Monopoly: Game of Thrones has a special feature that's designed to put fans in a competitive mood. As Mashable reports, the game plays the theme song from Game of Thrones as players betray their opponents and rack up properties around the Seven Kingdoms.
The board game is the second version of the Game of Thrones Monopoly that debuted in 2015, and it comes with a few updates. Instead of paper money, players can now do business with silver stags and gold dragons, the currency used in the the Game of Thrones universe. A model of the Iron Throne holds the Chance cards, which in the spirit of the series can "swing the game quickly in your favor or crush you all at once," according to the game's description. And if players ever need to raise the dramatic tension, the game's packaging plays the iconic opening credits theme.
Game of Thrones has been adapted into several tabletop games, including a version of Clue set in Westeros, but Monopoly, the game that's been causing family fights for over a century, feels like an especially fitting match.
The second edition of Monopoly: Game of Thrones comes out on December 24, 2018. You can pre-order it now for $30.
