Everyone loves Monopoly but New Yorkers might particularly like the new Brooklyn edition of the famous board game, where the infamous Atlantic City squares are replaced with borough-specific destinations that city dwellers are likely much more familiar with.
Among the represented businesses, landmarks and cultural sites: Fort Greene Park, the Hot Corner, DeKalb Avenue, Coney Island, Barclays Center, Prospect Park, the Jewish Children's Museum, CAMBA, Brooklyn Botanical Garden and more.
Even the fun Community Chest and Chance playing cards get the Brooklyn treatment in this newest iteration of the game by somehow paying homage to the city. Honestly, this makes for the ideal holiday gift to, perhaps, actually be played during a family get-together? Check it out on Amazon right here.
"Brooklyn is one of the most exciting cities in the U.S. with many incredible pioneering establishments and cherished locations. We’ve spent months creating a portrayal of this dynamic community that we hope locals and visitors alike will enjoy for years to come," said Dennis Gavaghen, representative from Top Trumps USA, the company behind the game, in an official press release about the release. "We’ve incorporated important feedback from locals to truly make this a fun and engaging game for Brooklynites and beyond."
This isn't the first that that the popular board game gets a theme-specific makeover. Other standouts include a Super Mario edition of the toy, one dedicated to hit Netflix show Stranger Things, one all about HBO darling Game of Thrones and even a Lunar New Year board.
Although the Brooklyn franchise is sure to become our new favorite, we must admit we've been partial to the Monopoly pizza game until now. We are New Yorkers, after all.
