In order to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the first Godfather film, USAoplogy has combined licenses from Hasbro and Paramount to create a new Godfather-inspired version of Monopoly which includes properties such as the Corleone Long Island Home, the Corleone Lake Tahoe Estate, Woltz International Pictures, Moe Green’s Casino, Joe’s Diner and Hyman Roth’s Home.
The four railroads were switched out for a fishing boat, a getaway car, a delivery truck and a passenger train. The Chance and Community Chest cards were renamed Friends and Enemies cards to remind folks to “keep your friends close, but your enemies closer,” according to a statement from the company. “Don” cards have been added to help players align with a family from the movie to garner an advantage in the game.
The familiar tokens have also received a makeover, and now consist of a gun, a cannoli, a Genco olive oil tin, the Don’s limousine, a dead fish and a horse’s head. We are super stoked on this release!
Available HERE now for $40.
