Travel across the galaxy as the adorable Child - affectionately nicknamed Baby Yoda - in a new edition of classic family board game Monopoly based on Star Wars Disney+ series The Mandalorian.
The catchily-titled Star Wars: The Mandalorian: Monopoly: The Child allows players to choose between a selection of Baby Yoda player tokens enacting various scenes from The Mandalorian, including when The Child uses the Force and gobbles down an unfortunate frog. Joining the Baby Yodas (Babies Yoda?) will be a collection of objects from the Disney+ series for players to gather, such as a tracking fob and cup of warming broth.
During the upcoming board game players will move around the game board and land on various locations featured in The Mandalorian, including the Razor Crest Cockpit and Razor Crest Storage Bay of the bounty hunter’s spaceship. Players can then choose to buy these various hideouts by trading the objects they’ve collected along the way, and choose to upgrade the locations to ‘common houses’ later on.
As in the classic family board game Monopoly, players roll a pair of dice to see how far they move and compete with opponents to gather the most wealth - or in this case, unique objects - possible in order to win. Monopoly: The Child is described as being a simplified version of the original classic, making it a more accessible board game for kids.
Publishing Monopoly: The Child is board game giant Hasbro - the company that owns Monopoly and has previously put other other Star Wars board games such as Monopoly: Star Wars Complete Saga Edition, as well as classic family board games like Risk.
Star Wars: The Mandalorian: Monopoly: The Child is the latest Star Wars board game to be announced in the wake of ‘Star Wars Day’ on May the Fourth, following Talisman: Star Wars - a version of the classic adventure game set in the galaxy far, far away. Featuring iconic characters from the film series, including Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader, the upcoming board game will have players racing to reach Emperor Palpatine in the middle of the galaxy. Along the way, players will need to fight various intergalactic dangers to get stronger and acquire powerful items to help them win.
Star Wars: The Mandalorian: Monopoly: The Child is set to be released on October 26th at a retail price of £20/$24.
