US: Skylanders Monopoly to launch

New lands to own include the Chompy Diner and a Haunted House

USAopoly under license from Hasbro has teamed up with Activison to create Skylanders Monopoly.

This version of the iconic board game features 22 ‘newly discovered’ Skylands locations for players to own including Stealth Elf’s Ninja Dojo, Spyro’s Chompy Diner and Cynder’s Haunted House.

The railroads of the game have been changed into services like Flynn’s Blimp Tours and Moleskin Mine Train whilst the Community Chest is now a Treasure Chest.

Chance cards are now Luck-O-Trons and the hotels have been renamed castles.

The game tokens have also been given a redesign, with players now moving around the board using one of six metal Kaos, Sheep, Cannon, Pirate Ship, Swords or Chompie figures.

The game is now available in the US at Amazon.com and at stores including Hastings, Entertainment Earth and GameStop Canada, with an RRP of $39.99.
