If you haven’t heard of the game Fortnite, I must ask, where have you been? While not a video game lover myself, when it comes to Fortnite, it’s hard to not know all about it. Available on Xbox, PlayStation, and PC, adults and children play it — 125 million of them, in fact. One 9-year-old fan even ended up in rehab after playing the game for 10 hours a day.
And just like all things that are insanely popular in our culture, you can find tons of merchandise and even Halloween costumes based on characters in the game. The latest product fans will surely love to get their hands on? Monopoly: Fortnite Edition!
While the game is available now for pre-order on Walmart.com for just $15.88, it will not ship until Oct. 26. If it is available at a store near you, however, you can choose “pick up in store” and may be able to get it as soon as the same day. If it’s not available near you and you don’t want to wait, you can also get it at Target for $19.99.
The game is for two to seven players, ages 13 and up. It includes the game board, 27 cardboard outfits with pawn stands, multiple cards, two different dice, health point chips and a game guide.
How is the Fortnite edition different from the original Monopoly? Players in this version of the game claim locations, battle opponents and must avoid the storm to survive. In short, it’s not about how much property you own, but how long you can survive. Players also don’t get money like in normal Monopoly, but instead get health points.
Will you be purchasing Monopoly: Fortnite Edition for yourself or perhaps as a gift this holiday season?
