Super Mario-Themed Monopoly Unveiled With Unique Boss Battles And Power-Ups

Super Mario-Themed Monopoly Unveiled With Unique Boss Battles And Power-Ups Super Mario-Themed Monopoly Unveiled With Unique Boss Battles And Power-Ups

On top of replacing the classic player pieces with Mario, Peach, Yoshi, and Donkey Kong, Monopoly Gamer changes up some of Monopoly's rules by introducing boss fights and character powers. For example, Princess Peach has the "Super Star" power, which allows her to collect rent from the bank when she lands on the corresponding space.

Power-ups will be handled by a completely separate die and will offer cash boosts and rewards for players who pick up spaces around the board. There are even power-ups and boss battles... Yoshi collects all coins on the board, and Donkey Kong steals three coins from each player.

It wouldn't be a "gamer" edition without DLC, so if you want to buy more characters you can do so for $2.99US. There are eight bosses in the game, each of the seven Koopalings and then Bowser himself, and they have to be defeated in order, but not necessarily all by the same player.

Central Florida schools release report cards, more A grades, state says
A total of 1,589 schools maintained an "A" grade (660 schools) or increased their grade (929 schools) in 2016-17. Carpenter was speechless when she learned her students improved their school grade from an "F" to a "B".


Instead of just continuing on until someone manages to buy out everyone else, this game has a specific number of rounds controlled by boss fights. If they roll a number high enough to defeat the boss, they collect the card to add to their points at the end of the game. Players tally up the points from the properties they own and the bosses they have defeated, along with 10 extra points for every five coins in their stash.

Interestingly, the base game can be modified with Power Packs, which bring new characters and abilities to the fold. The Collector's Edition includes a bonus Bowser token.

A Collector's Edition of Monopoly Gamer is available at GameStop starting today and comes with an additional character: Bowser. As you can see in the video above, the game board certainly looks similar with Go and Jail holding down their standard corners, while properties from the Mushroom Kingdom line the borders. They even went a step further with Booster Packs, which will introduce new characters which will cost 2.99 United States dollars - sold separately.
