USAopoly is set to release Monopoly: The Smurfs Collector’s Edition, under a license from Hasbro, in conjunction with Sony Pictures Consumer Marketing and the cartoon studio of Lafig Belgium. The game celebrates more than 55 years of the Smurfs and comes as the Smurfs prepare to return to the big screen in The Smurfs 2, the sequel to Columbia Pictures/Sony Pictures Animation’s hybrid live-action, animated family comedy.
The game board includes 22 Smurf Village locations such as Clumsy’s Forest, Grouchy’s Mushroom House, and Brainy’s Library. Boardwalk and Park Place, the prime properties in classic Monopoly, are replaced by Papa Smurf’s Lab and Smurfette’s Flower Garden. The traditional “chance” and “community chest” cards are transformed into “potions” and “surprises” cards. Monopoly money is transformed into Smurfberries, and game tokens include Papa Smurf, Smurfette, Lazy, Brainy, Vanity, and Handy. The game is designed for players ages 8 and up and will be available on amazon.com and at specialty retail stores across North America this month.
