Are you a Mario Kart fan? How about Monopoly? If so Monopoly Gamer Mario Kart combines the best of both elements, without losing that Monopoly feel. The best part is in the original version of Monopoly, the token that you choose is a personal preference of style not function, where in this version each token has their own superpower that can be used in the game. It looks like additional pieces are available for purchase as well.
This sequel to the Monopoly Gamer board game joins forces with Nintendo Mario Kart characters and elements. Move around the gameboard as Mario, Princess Peach, Luigi, or Toad; buy iconic Mario Kart properties such as Bowser’s Castle, and Rainbow Road. Pass Go to trigger a race from Mario Kart Cup, dodge banana peel tokens, toss shells, and collect Coins. A Super Star space activates special abilities and rolling the Power-Up Die adds a special boost. Winning in this game is all about winning races! Who will end up with the coveted Grand Prix card? When the final race is over, the player with the highest score wins.
Experience Mario Kart on a Monopoly gameboard, Drop banana peels and collect Coins to earn points, Land on a Boost Pad space to move around the board faster, Race against opponents when passing Go, Power Up! Die enhances a character’s powers
We did get the Hasbro YouTube channel releasing the official video for Monopoly Gamer Mario Kart and it looks like a blast. Each of the games looks to last a little shorter than your standard Monopoly game, and the fact that this is not just a skin or a fancy version, but rather one that changes a bit of gameplay makes it fun. The best part is when you pass go and trigger a race from Mario Kart Cup. Then again there is something satisfying to tossing shells just like the video game.
