Turtle fans of all ages can enjoy the Heros in a Half Shell in a whole new way with two original MONOPOLY games, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Edition and MONOPOLY: Teenage Mutant Turtles Collector's Edition. Produced by USAopoly, under license from Hasbro, Inc., and in conjunction with Nickelodeon, both MONOPOLY games include unique custom features. Launching fall 2014, both games will be available in specialty stores across North America, as well as amazon.com, with suggested retail prices of $39.95 and $49.95 respectively.
"We are very excited about this partnership and we believe these games are a perfect fit for multiple generations of Turtles fans," says John M. Davis, President, USAopoly, Inc.
"Partnering with USAopoly to create these two new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles games allows players to experience this classic board game in a whole new way, said Manuel Torres, Senior Vice President, Global Toys and Publishing, Nickelodeon Consumer Products. "The characters, villains and locations fans have discovered with the hit-franchise come alive in a style that the whole family can enjoy together."
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Edition allows fans of Nickelodeon's current TV show to vie for 22 popular locations found throughout the CG-animated series including Antonio's Pizza-Rama, Snakeweed's Lair and Splinter's Dojo. Also featured are six custom metal tokens including Kraang, Spike, Throwing Star, Pizza, Mutagen and Shredder's Mask.
USAopoly also pays tribute to the classic Turtles, considered one of the most popular kids' entertainment brands of the 1980s, with MONOPOLY: Teenage Mutant Turtles Collector's Edition. In this version, players choose one of six custom sculpted vinyl tokens including: Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello, Michelangelo, Splinter or Casey Jones, and then buy, sell and trade the most notorious Turtle villains on the colorfully illustrated game board. Properties can be enhanced with custom Pizza Slices and Pizza Boxes, replacing the traditional houses and hotels.
