Birthday Month Giveaway on May 22, 2017 - Monopoly Game: Pokémon Johto Edition

My grandsons enjoy playing Monopoly and they enjoy collecting Pokemon cards, so a combination of Monopoly and Pokemon is sure to be a hit! When I saw USAopoly had just such a game, I asked them if it was available for review - they said it was, and another is available for me to give away as well! So, today I'm happy to let you know about this game from USAopoly - and their Super Mario Chess game as well.

Monopoly Game: Pokémon Johto Edition
Made by - USAopoly
Ages - 8+

Favorite Features -
  • All the features and game play of Monopoly
  • Added "fun" of Pokemon with special design, pieces and options
  • Fun for families to play together
USAopoly says; "GOTTA CATCH ‘EM ALL - Join Pikachu and friends on a monopolizing adventure. In MONOPOLY Pokemon: Johto Edition, you’ll set forth on a Pokemon-themed quest to own it all with your favorite characters like Chikorita, Cyndaquil, Totodile, Pikachu, Pichu, Togepi, and more. PERFECT FOR POKÉMON LOVERS - This beloved board game has been transformed into the Pokémon region of Johto. Traditional houses and hotels are transformed into Poké Marts and Pokémon Centers, while Poké, Great, Ultra, and Master Balls have replaced the traditional railroad spaces, and there are other exciting changes as well. COMES WITH COMPLETE INSTRUCTIONS - Gameplay isn’t complicated, but don’t worry! Each Pokémon: Johto Edition comes with complete instructions, which explain the original game as well as the differences for Pokémon: Johto Edition. ALSO INCLUDES SPEED RULES - Do you like to play fast? MONOPOLY Pokémon: Johto Edition has rules for a short (60-90) minute game, which is perfect for playing with friends and family when you don’t have time for a true marathon. PRODUCT SPECIFICATIONS - Package includes (1) MONOPOLY Pokemon: Johto Edition. Includes Game Board, 6 Custom Tokens, 28 Title Deeds, 16 Professor Elm Cards, 16 Trainer Battle Cards, Pokemon Money, 32 Poké Marts, 12 Pokemon Centers, 2 Dice."

I know my grandsons - especially the five-year old - will be thrilled to play Monopoly Game: Pokémon Johto Edition as he is a fan of both Monopoly and Pokemon. I especially like how it includes rules for a shorter game, as we often do not have time for a regular long game.

USAopoly also sent me their Super Mario Chess Collector's Edition Tin to review. My eight-year old grandson really loves to play chess and the five-year old is learning, so I'm confident they are going to be very happy to see this new chess game! 

USAopoly says; "Mario and Bowser are battling it out once again; this time in the classic game of Chess! Pick your team and take control of 32 hand-painted playing pieces including: Mario, Luigi, Bowser, and more."

I love how USAopoly combined the fun of Super Mario with the game of chess - perfect for children . . . or any fan or Mario! The pieces are easy to hold, and make playing more interesting for sure! I love how chess helps children to think logically and strategically.

I'm very happy to say not only did USAopoly send me one copy of Monopoly Game: Pokémon Johto Edition to review, but they are making another available for me to give away (USA only). If you are over the age of 18 and would like to enter this drawing - which will be on May 222017, please comment below to tell me what you think would combine well with Monopoly to make a great game . . .

  7. I love learning about history, so I think it would be fun to buy and sell historic landmarks in the U.S. or even across the world! It would be exciting to virtually own the Great Sphinx, Washington Monument, or even Alcatraz!

  15. I know my kids would LOVE the Pokemon and Monopoly combination. I also think that Legos and Monopoly would go well together. Especially if it included a build component into buying houses and hotels.
