Snowy and/or rainy days are the best days to hunker down, sip on some hot chocolate and dive into a game of Monopoly. It’s by most accounts the classic board game that every kid that is now an adult played growing up. Over the years I’ve seen a number of iterations of the board game, but none might not be more geek aspirational than the Monopoly: Marvel Comics Collector’s Edition.
Replacing the iconic property tiles of a time past are comic books. That’s right, you’ll be pitted against other players in what is no longer a land grab, but a race to amass the most radical comic book collection this side of the planet. Some of the comic books included are Spider Man’s first ever appearance in Amazing Fantasy #15 to the dynamic debut of the first family of superheroes in Fantastic Four #1. And instead of the shoe, the hat or the iron, six Marvel tokens are taking their place; Magneto’s Helmet, Infinity Gauntlet, Eye of Agamotto, Things Fist, Captain America’s Shield and the Helicarrier. Moreover, the traditional Monopoly currency comes in the form of Marvel’s own version.
