Game of Thrones will be immortalized in the high-end Monopoly: Game of Thrones Collector’s Edition. The front of the box will be foil stamped with the main houses, the inside of the box will feature a linen wrap with a Game of Thrones background, and the oversized tokens will include a Dragon Egg, Three-Eyed Rave, White Walker, Direwolf, Crown, and The Iron Throne. The game is for players ages 18 and up, with an MSRP of $59.95.
USAopoly Marketing Manager Cindy Saylor told ICv2 that a Game of Thrones Risk edition is also planned. The game will feature 650 game pieces, cases for all the army pieces, special dice, special cards, and two maps: Westeros and Essos. "There are lots of different variants on how you can play Risk," she said. "You can play across both maps, and it supports up to 7 players." Release is planned for July.
Monopoly: Jurassic World is also planned for spring release, to coincide with the movie’s June 12 opening (see "'Jurassic World' Trailer 2"). The game is for players ages 8 and up, and has an MSRP of $39.95.
Monopoly: Mass Effect is planned for summer release. The game is for players ages 8 and up, and has an MSRP of $39.95.
USAopoly also plans to release a Monopoly game based on the best-selling military science fiction video game franchise Halo in the fall. Monopoly: Halo is for players ages 8 and up, and has an MSRP of $39.95.
Oversize Token Banks. "It’s Monopoly’s 80th Anniversary so we’re doing retro versions of oversized tokens," said Saylor. "So all the iconic Monopoly tokens are represented: the hat, the dog, the car, and the thimble." Specific release date and MSRP have not been announced.
These titles join the already announced Monopoly: Firefly Edition for March release (see "'Firefly Monopoly'") and the new Doctor Who Monopoly iteration for this year (see "'Clue: Doctor Who' and 'Monopoly: Doctor Who Villains Edition'").
