MONOPOLY: The Legend of Zelda GameStop Exclusive Edition
This looks awesome! Still is Monopoly, people.
I'm personally really excited about this, I've been wanting this ever since they came out with a Nintendo version, which just wasn't Zelda enough for me. I don't know why people are getting all bent out of shape about the corner spaces, its not as though this ISN'T a Hasbro Trademark Monopoly game, and based on EVERY other monopoly game (Lord of the Rings, Nintendo, and every other one) all of those corner spaces have always been the same (free parking, go to jail, etc.), which, to me, seems like an obvious sign that Hasbro wants it like that. Yes, it would be awesome to change it. No, its not going to happen. That should not diminish the game, just as it didn't with the Lord of the Rings board. If you really want a game with the corners Zelda themed, go to deviant art and search it, I'm sure there are plenty that you could print off on an 8x10. As for me, I look forward to this game, corners and all. (Also, feel free to print off pictures fitting the corner spaces and hodge-podge them on. Ya?)
come on gamestop you could do better
I was happy for a second... dont know if gamestop has any say in this or not but whoever made this game messed up.Why does it not say collect 200 rupees as you pass go come on its zelda theme and you put dollars on there. and why isnt the jail symbol a gerudo valley guard. its the little details people.
Thought this was a joke, glad it wasn't!
When I first saw this on my Facebook feed I thought that this was a joke. We had all wanted a Monopoly game based off of Zelda, but I didn't think that it would actually come true. Super excited. Can't wait to play the classical game with a new twist.
They didn't even bother to do art for the corner squares. Free Parking? Really? Are cars a thing in Hyrule? If you're gonna do something, do it right. Any Zelda fan will notice the non-Zelda art right off the bat and I'd regret my purchase. There are better quality themed Monopoly games out there.
Legend of Monopoly - Intense Edition ! ! !
This looks AMAZING ! ! ! It appears to have many different Zelda series all on one board ! The tokens chosen are iconic and you get the exclusive GAMESTOP ocarina of time! The GAMESTOP exclusive also includes the map which looks great and in a fun themed treasure chest. The game cards and currency look nice too (I like how they incorporated the rupee). Can't wait to see what the houses and hotels look like. This is definitely one of those sets you don't want to miss, because when it's gone, it will probably be $100 from 3rd parties. Pre-order before it's too late! I did some shopping around and could not find a better exclusive. Shout out to Jimmy James, I'm preordering this for your b-day buddy !
the description says "Wind Walker"
supposed to be "Wind Waker"
This is pretty neat, but I think the board itself should be different and more intricate / fancy rather than a bloated drawing of Link; I'd rather something more simple and visualized quality like the way the Prima Guide Chest Box Set went.
Totally gonna buy it!
I'm definitely going to buy this sucker. This is too amazing, and the game pieces are the best part. I do agree that the center board design looks a little lacking. A gorgeous picture of Hyrule Castle, the Castle Town gates, or something like a detailed, elegant depiction of Hyrule Field would have been more fitting. A giant image of Link feels almost lazy? BUT. That's not going to stop me from buying it. I'm a die-hard Legend of Zelda player and this is definitely going in my collection of memorabilia.
Wow! Sold out already! Somehow I kind of expected this though. Afterall, it's a Gamestop EXCLUSIVE edition! I already have my order in and am patiently waiting for the release. Perfect for Monopoly and Zelda lovers alike! Can't wait to see if there are any additional rules or regulations.
Got excited, then got over it... The Details!!
I actually had this on pre-order until I spent some time looking at the screen shots of the board and I cancelled it. Free Parking? The "Go To Jail" square has the same police with whistle? No updated jail square? This could have been great but I can't see spending money on such a half-effort. Every corner square should have been updated with a Zelda touch. How this made it to production in the current form is mind-boggling.
Total Fanboy Excitement
I heard the rumor ages ago but I never thought it would happen so soon. I nearly cried with happiness when I saw this available for preorder. As an avid Zelda collector, this is a must have and I can't wait!
