Back in March this year USAopoly confirmed a special edition Legend of Zelda Monopoly along with a variety of other licensed products. There was no real insight into how it would look, but a pre-order listing by GameStop shows it off, while confirming a $39.99 price tag and 15th September release in the US.
As you can see in the image above it's a stylish setup, and details of the contents are below, including some aspects that are exclusive to GameStop.
6 Collectible tokens:
Ocarina of Time (Game Stop Exclusive token)
Houses renamed Deku Sprouts, Hotels renamed Deku Trees
Chance and Community Chest cards are renamed Empty Bottle and Treasure Chest
Custom Deed Cards
6 Item Power Cards for added game play (Game Stop Exclusive)
Ocarina of Time
Zelda themed money
Custom rules including Item Card instructions
11"x17" Hyrule Map Lithograph in Treasure Chest Holder (Game Stop Exclusive)
Other retailers will likely be selling this too, minus some extras, but this certainly looks attractive. Check out the images above and below and let us know if you're planning to pick this up.
Thanks to Alias for the heads up.

Shut up and take my rupees!
have to have.
This would be really fun to play.
But dang, do I wanna spend $40 on it? I'd probably only play it once, with my brother (a fellow Zelda fan, and the only one I know that would even remotely be willing to play Zelda Monopoly with me lol)
We get this but not the Legend of Zelda Legos?
If I had friends that liked Zelda I might buy this. But I don't.
I HAVE TO HAVE THIS! (having a fanboy moment here)
I wonder if EB Games in Canada will be getting the exclusive stuff...
"Wind walker" I do have to get that monopoly though, the tokens look great
Omg I'm buying 2
I'll be buying this to put on the shelf for my one day soon to have zelda shrine lol
A little expensive but the designs do make that price fitting. If I get this I'll need someone willing to play with me which obviously wouldn't last forever
WHY!? Why can't I preorder it in Canada!? The website doesn't allow me to!
I will go to the eb games near my home and demand an explanation as to why! And if I am not satisfied and still can't get the game...
Someone will suffer greatly.
That someone being me.
I guess this won't sit well with a lot of Zelda fans. They seem to lack friends to play with locally, and/or lack the ability to find new friends who live close by.
A re-skin of a game nobody plays or cares about anymore... Better run out and buy it straight away
I would get this but my fam don't even play Monopoly anymore
Oh my goodness, this is the perfect Christmas present! Mind you, I don't plan on playing it very much, but displaying the box and those sweeeeet extras
Hopefully it doesn't sell out...
@XFsWorld Re-introduce them to family game night. No Gamer should go without some old fashioned gaming in their lifetime. Plus it's good for the family, you're sitting around a table face to face and interacting. You have to put away the cellphones.
@Specters "have to have" ? Or did you mean nice to have? Well maybe you did mean that
Just hold on to it. I'm sure it will be worth a pretty penny someday. Specially the gamestop version.
I would get it but I don't have enough people over long enough to play a good game.
@R-L-A-George Yeah, I actually miss those days, playing Monopoly, Uno, Kuuduk, Checkers, etc. But that won't ever happen again I think. Playing Spades didn't due tho lol.
Wow! Even the Oracle games get some love in this board.
My family and friends love Monopoly. We've bought so many different Monopoly variations: Original, 50th Anniversary, Vegas, Shrek, Jr, Disney, World, Cities, Canada, The Walking Dead. Heck, I just bought Monopoly Empire last week!
So, it's no doubt I'm going to buy this on day 1.
Kinda cool but the main picture on the board looks a wee bit hodgepodged to me. I'm sure they could have done something that looked a bit more apt than just picking some random image of link from an instruction manual or whatever, along with the more rendered looking Zelda Logo, and slapping it on the centre of the board.
Leave it to Gamestop to have exclusives for a board game.
The Temple of Time worth more than Hyrule castle.... lol well, I guess the master sword is in the Temple of Time
So...where does this game fit in the timeline?
Also: Did anyone else notice that the box's background is a copy/paste of Hyrule Historia?
Maybe Metronopoly next? XD
@Kyloctopus Ganon thought he could fool Link and Zelda by winning the triforce in a game of Monopoly, but fail terribly. Ended up sealed into the board game itself.
Quite late in the timeline where he was running low on ideas...
Please bring it to europe, if not import time.
I hate monopoly, but I'll buy this
Edit:The corner art should have been changed
I actually have needed a new monopoly to play for a while now and this is perfect, going to be picking this up if they still have them in stock when they come out.
Monopoly is a terrible game. A Zelda themed Settlers of Catan would be cool.
I actually love both Monopoly and Zelda, so this is perfect! Bring this to Europe please!
@Crimzonlogic Just buy it! I am.
@Nareva Why is it terrible?
This is awesome! Pricey but sorry, huge Zelda fan so a must have.
@SanderEvers That would definitely be a much better use of the Zelda theme!
Zelda and Monopoly do not seem to go together imo. It should have been Tom Nook's Monopoly
OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I NEED THIS !!!!!!!!
Now they need to make a Smash Bros. one.
Our family still plays Monopoly from time to time and it's the same price as normal Monopoly here so I'd gladly buy it if it wasn't for paying 20€ more to get it shipped in Finland making it 50€ ($65). But even for that price it may still end up in my shelf. Have to think this through.
Well... guess I know what I'm getting for Christmas from the wife this year. Must feed my Zelda obsession.
They better have this Gamestop exclusive version somewhere else in Europe as well. It's really painful to see all those exclusive goodies, editions,... And never be able to get one for a reasonable price in the rest of Europe.
@BigH88 I'm a big fan of boardgames. I love playing them. I played Monopoly a lot when I was younger, but it always takes about an hour too long and someone decides to quit. Plus, when a player loses, the game can still go on for hours, leaving that person to watch Monopoly, the only thing worse than playing. One of my brothers is always defending the game, but I despise it. Definitely one of my most disliked games. But if you like it, more power to you! The Zelda version does look nice.
@Nareva Ah well thats a good reason. Your right about that. One game equals at least an hour. Mainly getting for the Zelda though.
Maybe as a Christmas gift.
@sinalefa - I was going to write - "Does it have online co-op?" - but I like yours better
@JaxonH - "do I wanna spend $40 on it?"
Glad to see you say that, makes me feel better thinking I wanted it right away, but for $25. It's a $15 board game, that would still be a $10 mark-up for licensing. My kid paid $15 for Mario chess on clearance at Target and that has lots of of cool pre-amiibo figures.
Haha, thanks. I first wanted to write something like "Since the CDi abominations, Zelda has always been a monopoly" but I preferred to go there instead.
I just pre order mine. Cant wait to play this with my family.
I just played my first Monopoly game the other day and I was hooked. I'm already looking to purchase our own so I might get this or look for the Mario-themed one.
Won't play it but get it for a collection purpose
I must have this. but i cant play it because i dont have friends
Great, now I have to buy this.
I wish this were it's own board game concept rather than a monopoly re-hash. I've not been a fan of Monopoly :/
No Master Sword token?
Do people still pretend to like Monopoly?
As Zelda merch, this is tempting, but nah.
I wish they would do this with other board games besides Monopoly. I already have 3 editions of Monopoly (Basic, ESPN, Nintendo). I don't need a 4th. Link could have been a good clone for like Risk, only with a different board layout.
wow, this looks very tempting
Okay buying it now!!!
Jeez that's awesome, but I already have a $40 sonic the hedgehog monopoly, kinda want this, but I should play Twilight princess and skyward sword first.
For me to but this, meh, I'm not even considered a zelda fan, except for wind waker (I should play more zelda games).
I never liked Monopoly... UNTIL NOW!
@BSFsontails1012 YES, you should. I strongly suggest both games, TP and SS. But then again, I have a felling you would recommend Lost World.
I have preordered this. Can't wait to get it!
I do like how you buy the places and not the people, there are some iterations of monopoly where you buy the people which makes no sense
I really hope this comes to Canada. You can pre-order it off of the American gamestop website but on the Canadian one... it is no where to be found.
Here's hoping there's a Zelda chess set in the works.
Or Zelda card game.
THIS Should have been the club Nintendo platinum reward. Am I right?!
I mean, I got Game and Wario because it was the only game I didn't have, and I still haven't even played it!
So much want... but Europeans will be left out ONCE AGAIN!
@BigH88 It's just too much money to spend on a thing that will sit on my shelf. I would definitely want it if I had people to play with, but nah. My friends aren't into Zelda. My limited money is best put towards other things that I really want and can use. I'd love to collect stuff like this if I were rich, though. Maybe someday, eh?
@BlueStar101 Oh, pfft. Hardly a typo.
I'm going to import this if it isn't here locally.
if only I liked Monopoly
@XFsWorld meant every word. I absolutely love Monopoly so that combine with Zelda is amazing.
@WaveBoy Yeah I know bro, I wouldn't touch this with a turd even if they released a Mega Drive/CD/32X edition
Yes, I will be pre-ordering this. Looks good!
1. Thanks, I just need to save up
2. I don't think I'll recommend lost world, mainly cause I don't have it, I want the wii u version, but other things like ssb4 wii u and Hyrule warriors appealed more.
Btw, anyone else hype for the Hyrule Warriors direct?
@WaveBoy He's a cool dooder that guy... Deserves his own game more than AVGN
Those corner spaces look really out of place. I can't believe they didn't change them to fit the theme.
I love Zelda but hate Monopoly. Not for me.
@WaveBoy You can say the same thing about AVGN too... Started off good but went downhill the more it dragged on
Ugh... now I have to go to gamestop. I have the nintendo edtion so I have to get this one as well.
As gigantic of a Zelda fan that I am, I am not sure if I will pay $40 for a board game that I already have, but with different names and pieces.
@WaveBoy Well, that's what happens when you fall in line with the broo box shooter crowd
I'm not a fan of monopoly, but I'd get it if only for its collecting value. Stuff like this might become really valuable and could sell for a lot one day.
Very nice indeed!
Although I already own the Nintendo themed Monopoly board game (with Mario, Animal Crossing, Kirby and Zelda) and hardly ever play it. So as tempting as this is, I think I will pass (sadly).
@Phantom_R Seriously! What's up with exclusive cards and pieces now??
Also, if the Ocarina is a GameStop exclusive piece, and Monopoly is 2-6 players, what does the 6th player use if you buy it somewhere else? Ridiculous.
After the problems I had with the Wind Waker special edition being a GS exclusive, I really wish Nintendo would stop dealing with them only. Bad for business and consumer relations IMO.
Man, if only there was any chance I could get this without having to import.
This will be MINE
so much awesome! at first i was like
then i saw the gamestop exclusive sticker on the box and i was like
but then i didn't care... so i was like
It's good to buy this for collectors purposes. Easily can be sold later for more than $100 on ebay.
They really couldn't have changed the free parking and go to jail guy?
wow this looks so cool!
I would actually like to have that. Too bad I have noboty to play with.
Eh, I'd rather have a Zelda themed Fortune Street.
@XFsWorld They'll love munchkin.
I'm getting this for my grown "kid" for her birthday as I bought what seemed like a million different Zelda games, for all her gadgets, throughout the years. The worst thing that could happen is she hates it and sells it off and makes a bit of a profit. So, for me, it's a win-win situation.
I ordered two and they arrived today UPS. I am going to leave them sealed for now. I wish they would release the number of Gamestop units made.
