There have been countless creative incarnations of Monopoly, but the folks at Hasbro just served up their best edition yet. It’s Monopoly Pizza, a deliciously adorable twist on the classic that is a must-order for every game night.
Here’s why Monopoly Pizza has quickly become a hit here at Slice headquarters and why you’ll probably want one of your own for the pizza lovers in your life:
With Monopoly Pizza, you can choose from one of six ultra-adorable tokens: circle the board as a pizza chef, cheese grater, parmesan shaker, slicer, delivery bike, or a pie on a paddle as you battle for saucy supremacy.
The Monopoly Pizza box, naturally, is stylized like a pizza box, imploring you to “Buy a Slice & Rack up the Dough!”
Mr. Monopoly is front and center, of course, but he’s swapped his robber baron threads for a pizzaiolo’s apron and chef hat.
The board itself looks like the inside of a pizza box, complete with the remnants of a mostly-devoured pizza. The likes of Illinois Avenue, Park Place, Marvin Gardens have been replaced by tasty toppings like pepperoni, tomatoes, eggplant, and bacon.
Live out your pizza fantasies.
Collecting rent and buying properties is great and all, but we prefer the objective here, which is to share and amass slices. And, through the community chest and chance cards, you can live the dream of entering a pizza-making contest or breaking out of prison with one phone call to your favorite pizza parlor.
We’d rather order a delicious local pie for delivery with an easy-to-use app, but Monopoly Pizza is a hit nonetheless.
