Who doesn't remember the classic board game that taught us all how to be smart with our money, diplomatic in our trade agreements, and maybe a little bit competitive? Monopoly may have started a few arguments here and there ("NO, I'm the Wheelbarrow!") but ultimately it's a really fun game that makes you think about what everyone at the table is trying to accomplish.
Since it's release in 1902 by Elizabeth Magie, many iterations of the property trading game have been developed. We compiled a list of our favorite versions so you can rediscover the joy of Monopoly with your family!
A wholesome version of the game that the entire family can appreciate! Move through the game by Captain Hook's ship from Peter Pan or by Cinderella's glass slipper, and accumulate enough fortune to build castles over top of your favorite Disney movies!
For the enthusiastic Simpsons fan, this edition of Monopoly allows you to travel through Springfield's many iconic locations such as Moe's and the nuclear power plant to build up Homer's hometown. Just don't get thrown in jail, D'oh!
Ever wanted to travel all across America in a single evening? Well now you can with the Here & Now: USA edition. Use your tokens of Americanism to journey the 50 states and claim victory by winning over your favorite cities!
City life not your thing? No worries! Take yourself out of the concrete jungle and explore the wide expanses and incredible views from 22 of the most popular national parks in the country! Make your way as animals native to the continent and enjoy the 60-minute fast-play option too!
If your preference is more so worlds far away and in the distant past, then consider picking up the Star Wars edition so you can play as characters from the entire series right up to The Force Awakens! If things aren't going well, land on Force Cards to change your destiny and that of the empire.
What about these versions that bring out the nostalgia for all members of the family?
Didn't get enough from the Disney Classic edition? Relive the magic of Disney World's exciting attractions with an added pop-up castle for the center of the board! If you really want this version just remember, the dream that you wish will come true!
Do you want to be the very best? Choose your starting pokemon from the original three or Pikachu, Eevee, or Jigglypuff as you advance toward Poke Marts and prove that you're the Pokemon master! Gotta catch 'em all!
If you or your family is more into classic movies then you may love this version based on the timeless film Wizard Of Oz. Follow the Yellow Brick Road and watch as the game magically goes from sepia to color as you move around the board! With tons of movie props to play with, you'll lose yourself in the game from the Tin Man token to the Red Slipper dice. You're not in Kansas anymore!
Sometimes, the oldies are the besties. If you've played every type of Monopoly under the sun, then you may want to switch back to the basics and just play out the game as it was originally intended. While it lacks the cool designs of later versions, it brings us back to those times we played into the evenings trying to see who would win, once and for all.
