Disney Monopoly Game Villains Edition

Disney Monopoly Game Villains Edition
Board games are probably thousands of years old, but their popularity is always on the top, even today, even in the world of modern technology. There are videogames based on boardgames, apps that allow us to play them, and of course the classic physical board games are still there. There are many games that we all know and love, like Monopoly for example - games with rules that everyone knows, that everyone loves or hate, that anyone can play because it's such a common knowledge, a common culture nowadays, and it's easy, fast (well, it's long.. but it's rapid, I mean) and one of the most popoular games. With a basis like that, it was obvious that sooner or later different Monopoly versions would appear in the world, with themes and characters from popular shows, medias or franchises. For example... Disney! Disney have a such big brand of characters that nowadays we can find something Disney-related in almost everything, with their good characters... and their villains. Disney VIllains are often amazing, and therefore this Monopoly, which is themed around them, have to be amazing as well! Sold on Amazon for 141,49 dollars (or some prices around that, dependin on seller) this play as the classic Monopoly game, with everything themed of course around villains. Just looking at the box make clear who we will find inside: classic and popular characters like Scar, Ursula, Hades, Jafar, Captain Hook, Gaston... but even guys like the Big Bad Wolf, Peg Leg Pete... and for some reason the Cheshire Cat from Alice in Wonderland, apparently considered a villain. On the board we won't find the classic street names, but objects, items and lairs of the various villains - including even more, not featured in the box art, like Frollo, Kaa, and others.... Instead of the classic cards, you can land on a Cauldron or on The Magic Mirror, and instead of the train stations there are different vehicles driven by various villains. There is a lot of details and a lot of different characters featured on the board, and the pawns themselves are iconic pieces of some of the most classic beloved Disney villains! If you love them, you have to buy this amazing game - sure it's expensive, but apparently in Disney parks and stores you can find it a bit cheaper.

Pros
  • A lot of different villains featured
  • Monopoly is always a lot of fun
  • You can find it cheaper in some stores
  • Was as expected

Cons
  • There might be TOO many details on the board, making it difficult to read
  • The pawn pieces are very small
  • Extremely expensive on Amazon
  • Arrived in poor conditions, all bent

Monopoly Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas Board Game

Monopoly Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas Board Game
This is Halloween, this is Halloween... Well, okay it's not Halloween, we are almost at Thanksgiving and sooner we will be in Christmas season.... but hey, Nightmare Before Christmas is also a Christmas movie! And one of the best cartoon ever, always as popular as when it comes out... somehow, well. At the beginning it wasn't that popular as today, and wasn't even officially "Disney", being produced by Touchstone. But today is a 100% Disney property, and therefore this cool version of Monopoly might be considered a Disney version of it as well. You all know NIghtmare Before Christmas, you all love it, so what not to love about this version of the game? It's being sold on Amazon for 35,53 dollars, and the box art put you right in the feeling and atmosphere of the movie, with some characters like Jack, Sally, the Mayor, Zero.. and a toy that the Halloweentown citizen built.. all sitting and standing around a pumpkin field. The board is full of details, and features different places from the movie, from the Oogie Boogie's Lair to Dr Flinkenstein Laboratory, from Salley's Alley to Under the Bed or Under the Stairs (from the intro song!). The classic cards are replaced by presents: Christmas or Halloween ones, and the train stations are instead the various doors that Jack find when lost in the woods. And talking about the pawns, they are silver like the classic game, but features objects and characters from the movies, like some toys that Jack delivers on his Chrismtas, or the Oogie Boogie himself! And let's not forget about the money: each of them have a different drawing of Jack's face, with different expression. If you are a true fan of Nightmare Before Christmas, you have to have this in your collection, be it for Christmas, for Halloween, or for all year round! No limits!

Pros
  • It's the classic Monopoly: what not to love about it?
  • Arrived in excellent conditions
  • Awesome art from the movie
  • Nightmare Before Christmas is always fantastic!
  • Full of details on everything

Cons
  • Arrived with some missing pieces
  • A piece broke quickly and easily
  • The board is a bit small

This one

I love disney but I just love Tim Burton's The Nightmare even more. It was such a good film to watch when I was a kid. And because of that, I would have to get this Monopoly Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas board game. I think that some of the cons you wrote were probably because of the seller and not too much because of the product being bad.

In this case, for me there is no significant difference (at least in my point of view)... Monopoly will always be Monopoly - anywhere in the world - no matter which edition is created. So, I have to say that I like both versions (but I don't have any preference between them).

Agree, Monopoly is Monopoly doesn't matter the theme. Obviously, if you want to play with your kids, they will choose a Disney game instead of a regular one, and if you want to play with a more adult audience, probably they will go with Nightmare before Xmas. Just because I like the game, doesn't matter which one I play, I enjoy the whole game either way. But, usually I always like the traditional one, because it reminds me of when I was a kid and learned how to play it.

I think the Nightmare Before Christmas is the one I would rather play with. I think this is the type of thing that I might enjoy. I have been watching the movie and find that to be a great thing to watch and view so I am sure I would enjoy the board game as well. It would be a fun thing to do.

Having enjoyed playing not just regular monopoly for decades but many variations of it and in a quite a number of different languages too - trying to choose one or other of these options is not just incredibly hard but virtually impossible - as in all honesty I really don't think it would matter which one of these two games someone choose - as either of these would for sure be great fun to play.

I have watched a couple of Tim Burton's movies. However, I am not familiar with the Nightmare before the Christmas. Actually, I am also not familiar with any of the board games reviewed above. I don't know what is Monopoly about and I don't know what is the subject of the Nightmare before Christmas. That's because I don't take much interest in board games.
