Monopoly: The Witcher – A New Addition to the Franchise

Monopoly, the iconic real-estate board game, has added yet another franchise to its extensive collection of spin-offs. The Witcher, a popular fantasy franchise, has now been immortalized in the form of Monopoly: The Witcher, published by The Op, and is now available for purchase at $44.99.

The Witcher, initially created by author Andrej Sapkowski, gained widespread fame through its well-received video games and Netflix television series. In this iteration of Monopoly, the adaptation appears to stay true to the lore of The Witcher. The game replaces the traditional Community Chest and Chance cards with Witcher-themed equivalents such as “Bounty” and “Law of Surprise.” Players will also have the opportunity to buy, sell, and trade famous monsters from the franchise, including the formidable Bruxa.

Although the objective of Monopoly: The Witcher remains the same as in any other variation of the game, which is to bankrupt opponents and be the last person standing, this special edition comes with its own uniquely designed Witcher-inspired tokens. These tokens include Kaer Morhen, a Flaming Book, a Crystal Skull, a Lute, and an amusing nod to a fan-favorite glitch in The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt – Roach on the Roof, representing Geralt's horse ending up in unexpected and unhelpful locations.

Monopoly: The Witcher is not the only tabletop game option available for fans of the franchise. For a more immersive experience, there is The Witcher Old World board game with its extensive range of expansions. Additionally, fans can explore The Witcher RPG by Michael Pondsmith, the creator of the Cyberpunk RPG franchise.

Monopoly: The Witcher provides a new and exciting way for fans of The Witcher to engage with their favorite characters and monsters from the fantasy franchise within the framework of the classic Monopoly game. It is the latest addition to the ever-expanding world of Monopoly spin-offs, joining the ranks of other popular variants such as Dungeons & Dragons, Law & Order, and Animal Crossing.
