Now that we’re all stuck indoors pretty much 24/7, playing board games has gone from being a somewhat boring pastime to a necessary one to stave off boredom. Monopoly is always a classic choice, and now that Hasbro is releasing a Baby Yoda version of Monopoly, that’s even more of a reason to invest a few hours into the game one night this week.
- Who doesn’t love Baby Yoda? Ever since Disney+ debuted The Mandalorian late last year, people have been obsessed with Baby Yoda for obvious reasons: he’s tiny and absolutely adorable. Since then, companies from Build-A-Bear to Chia Pets have come out with their own Baby Yoda merch, but a themed Monopoly might just be the best commemorative item yet.
- Baby Yoda Monopoly is everything you’d expect and more. The game comes with the game board (duh), plus four cardboard tokens with pawn stands, 18 title deed cards, 16 ‘Bounty Puck cards’, 16 ‘Camtono cards’, 32 plastic hideouts, 12 plastic houses, 12 dice, a money pack, and an instruction manual since the rules seem to be a little different than in the standard game.
- Sadly, this isn’t out just yet. Hasbro is a total tease for telling us that Baby Yoda Monopoly is coming but then not releasing it until September. Obviously things are a bit hectic right now (to say the least) and there are more important things than releasing a board game, but still, I need this in my life!
- Thankfully, you can pre-order it now. Something tells me that this game is going to sell out quickly, so I wouldn’t chance it by waiting until it comes out to try to get yours. You can pre-order the game for $19.99 from Entertainment Earth, which is a total bargain. Then, when the game is released, it’ll ship it out to you and you’ll get your hands on it ASAP.
