Players must make careful and strategic economic decisions, and secure as many locations, transports, and droids as possible to defeat the Galactic Empire. The game board is filled with iconic and recognizable locations from across the Star Wars universe – Tatooine, Dagobah, Endor, and the second Death Star.
Just like standard Monopoly, the more property you own, the easier it will be to get more credits. The game is further spiced up by special character powers – each token comes with a Character Power Card, which can be revealed for a powerful game-changing effect. This unpredictable power swing ensures exciting gameplay, but it doesn’t stop there! Players can use Speeder Bikes and X-Wings to gain a powerup but need to be aware of the destructive power of Darth Vader and the Emperor.
2. Yellowstone Monopoly
Yeehaw, cowboys, it’s time to play one of the best western Monopoly versions! Saddle up, lace your cowboy boots, and jump into Monopoly: Yellowstone, and you best be ready for some drama. Based on the popular western drama series Yellowstone by Paramount Networks, the game features iconic locations like the Dutton Ranch Main House, Stables, Bunkhouse, Rip & Beth’s Cabin, Paradise Valley Resort, Four Sixes Ranch, and many more.
In typical Monopoly style, you won’t just get to enjoy them, you also get to own them. Keeping with the cowboy theme, the box includes 6 custom sculpted tokens – Branding Iron, Cowboy Hat, Rope, Saddle, Bull, and a Belt Buckle. And to make it “Yellowstone”, the Chance Cards, Community Chest Cards and the Houses have been renamed “Protect The Land”, “We Don’t Choose The Way” Cards, and “Wranglers” respectively. The game’s money have also been redesigned to keep with the theme.
3. Stranger Things Monopoly
Monopoly: Netflix Stranger Things Edition takes you all the way back to 1986 and will have you not only compete against the evil entity known as Vecna in an economic standoff in the dark realm known as The Upside-Down. Among the darker Monopoly versions, Stranger Things Monopoly forces you to go to the upside down by spinning the hand on Vecna’s ominous grandfather clock.
Doing this will show you where the gates to the Upside-Down are, and players must race to close them. Of course, you can choose not to, but if Vecna opens enough gates to the dark realm – everybody loses. This extra sense of danger brings even more excitement to this strange Monopoly experience.
The game also features a thematic 80s style game board, and iconic player tokens based on items and monsters from the show. Those include Hopper’s police truck, a Demogorgon, the Hawkins High School crest, a Surfer Boy pizza slice, and Dustin’s iconic baseball cap.
4. Animal Crossing Monopoly
Nintendo and Hasbro unite to bring you Monopoly: Animal Crossing New Horizons Edition, where players get to experience the art style, themes and characters inspired by Nintendo’s Animal Crossing New Horizon.

Players then spend their resources on Bells, decorations, and earn Nook Miles.
While traversing the vast island landscapes, players can choose a unique power to help them on their resource collection journey. The game is simple enough to be understood and played by children, but its diverse and interesting twist of the economy system would make a game fun for older players, should they choose to go on an island trip!
