Monopoly Seinfeld Edition
Seinfeld Monopoly is variation of the classic board game Monopoly. This version is inspired by the hit television show Seinfeld which aired in the 1990's. The basic rules of the game are the same as the original, but the game is completely Seinfeld themed from the Lots to the playing pieces.
The game is equipped with six pewter playing pieces which include:
- The Marble Rye
- Fusilli Jerry
- The Puffy Shirt
- The Coffee Table Book about Coffee Tables
- The Urban Sombrero
- The Manzier / Bro.
Instead of Chance cards there are "Hellooo!" cards, which include Seinfeld references. There are also "Yadda yadda yadda" cards in place of Community Chest cards.
The properties are all places from the Seinfeld universe as well. The properties include: Jerry's Apartment, in place of the sought after Boardwalk spot, Elaine's Apartment, George's Apartment, Kramer's Apartment, Newman's Apartment, Pendant Publishing, Elaine's Office, Monk's Restaurant, The Chinese Restaurant, Poppy's Restaurant, the Non Fat Yogurt Shop, Jerry's Comedy Club, H&H Bagels, The Soup Kitchen, George's Office, The Hospital, and many more of the audience's favorite Seinfeld locations.
To go with the Seinfeld theme, instead of hotels and houses there are garages and parking spaces. These can be added to your properties. Another fun aspect of the game is that the bills all have Seinfeld quotes on them. One of the bills includes the classic Seinfeld quote "No soup for you!" uttered by the Soup Nazi.
The spots where you have to pay Luxury Tax and Income Tax have been replaced by "Comedy Club Tickets" and "Donation to Human Fund" which you have to a pay a fee to.
The train stations have been replaced by New York City and Seinfeld styled modes of transport. There is a Taxi, in place of the B&O railroad. There is a Limousine in place of the Short Line railroad. There is the Subway in place of Pennsylvania Avenue. Finally, there is Kramer's Carriage Service in place of Reading Railroad. The more of these the player collects, the more money the player will make.
While most of the game is heavily inspired by Seinfeld, the Free Parking, Go To Jail, Go, and Jail spots are all the same as the original.
This collector's edition of Monopoly can be played with 2-6 player. It is recommended that the players be at least 8 years of age. The game can be played using "speed play" which limits the game to 60 minutes, or it can be played until all but one player goes bankrupt.
