Sonic Monopoly

Hasbro‘s Monopoly Gamer line will expand this fall with a familiar blue blur from SEGA.

Monopoly Gamer: Sonic The Hedgehog Edition puts a new spin on the classic real estate trading game with the introduction of a “speedy die.” It features only numbers 2 to 7 to make the action fast, like Sonic. Instead of standard Monopoly tokens, players move around the game board with figurines including Sonic, Tails, Amy, and Knuckles. Properties for sale include Planet Wisp and Rooftop Run, and passing go doesn’t mean collecting $200 — it means collecting golden rings and triggering a co-op boss fight.

Monopoly Gamer - Sonic

Players will collect and drop rings on board spaces while earning Chaos Emeralds and Chaos tokens to activate the unique powers of each character. The player with the highest score following the final boss fight wins.

Monopoly Gamer: Sonic The Hedgehog Edition is available for preorder now at Walmart, and will be available in-store on Sept. 15 as part of an exclusive launch window. The game hits other retailers beginning Oct. 1.
