#GODZILLA Passes GO and Collects $200 Whenever The Kaiju Wants in Its Own MONOPOLY® Game
CARLSBAD, Calif.—February 12, 2020— usaopoly (The Op), a leading games publisher, in collaboration with Toho International, Inc., is excited for the North American launch of GODZILLA tabletop games: MONOPOLY® and JENGA®.
From its debut on the big screen in 1954, there have been over 30 GODZILLA films made in Japan and the United States, and GODZILLA continues to stomp through popular culture today. In MONOPOLY®: Godzilla, players will vie to collect iconic kaiju in their familiar settings — such as RODAN on Monster Island (formerly known as Boardwalk) and MOTHRA on Infant Island (formerly known as Park Place) in order to reign supreme — and will pick one of six collectible movers such GODZILLA, MECHAGODZILLA and KING GHIDORAH to navigate the MONOPOLY® game board.
“Since the 1950’s, GODZILLA has spawned a worldwide fan base,” says John M. Davis, The Op’s President and CEO. “Today, with our games, older fans can nostalgically relive childhood memories while introducing their families and younger generations to the world’s most revered monster.”
“Seeing what The Op has done to bring the world of GODZILLA into these classic games has been such an enjoyable experience” says Chris Mowry, Associate Brand Manager for Toho International, Inc. “The way they adapt the brand into these games to make them original and fresh is sure to please fans of all ages.”
Demolish the competition in a city-terrorizing twist on the classic board game with MONOPOLY®: GODZILLA. Begin the invasion by buying, selling and trading locations like Monster Island, Goro’s Workshop, and Kitakami Lake and take over the board with Facilities and Bases. Custom sculpted tokens of giants such as Mothra, GODZILLA, King Ghidorah, and Mechagodzilla easily impose on anything in their path!
