Hasbro Is Releasing A Baby Yoda Version Of Monopoly

If you're one of the many, many people enjoying the Baby Yoda obsession off the back of new Disney+ series The Mandalorian, you can now take your appreciation to the next level through the medium of MONOPOLY.

That's right, Hasbro has announced it's joined the hype with a brand new themed version of the popular board game.

While the Monopoly: The Child Edition isn't available until September, you can pre-order it now for $19.99 (£15) from Entertainment Earth, which ships internationally.

"The classic game is back with a twist through The Force!" Entertainment Earth's product description reads.

"The Child stars in the Star Wars The Mandalorian The Child Edition Monopoly Game, and he's brought along adventurers from across the galaxy. Take turns looking over intergalactic real estate in this daring mash-up of adventure and finances.

As well as moving around the gameboard as The Child, you can also buy and sell hideouts and common houses, while following actions on the 'Camtono' or 'Bounty Puck' cards.

As with traditional Monopoly, the winner is the last player standing after others have gone bankrupt.

When The Mandalorian dropped over in the States last year, Baby Yoda became something of an overnight icon.

To clarify, the character isn't actually called Baby Yoda, nor is it the Yoda we all know in baby form, as the series is set after his death.

The character is in fact just a younger version of the same species, though we don't know the name of Yoda's species for some reason. Indeed, he isn't even a baby, he's 50-years-old - but this is young relatively speaking, when you consider Yoda died at the ripe old age of 900.

Basically, the pet name largely derives from the fact that the creature is simply adorable - having even inspired a whole new range of toys and stuffed teddies.
