You Can Now Buy A 'Nightmare Before Christmas' Themed Monopoly Set

You Can Now Buy A 'Nightmare Before Christmas' Themed Monopoly Set

It's the board game classic we turn to every December (with the obligatory rows that follows) - and now a special edition of Monopoly has been made with The Nightmare Before Christmas in mind.

Directed by Tim Burton, the 1993 festive flick follows Jack Skellington, the Pumpkin King from Halloween Town, who finds Christmas Town and is instantly enchanted with it.

Now, die hard fans of the Christmas film can swap careers to become property tycoons by playing the special edition Monopoly game.

The cinematic-themed board game challenges players to use 'The Scientific Method' to buy, sell and trade the infamous properties of Halloween Town.

Instead of Old Kent Road and Pall Mall, players can unwind with Jack on Spiral Hill, freefall from Dr. Finkelstein's Tower and take a dip in Undersea Gal's Lake as part of The Nightmare Before Christmas-themed game.

With six spooky tokens, this is a must have for any fan of Tim Burton and Danny Elfman's cult classic.

The Hasbro game is currently available on Amazon for £34.99. But wait, 'What's This'? It is also available in selected Disney Stores for a wallet-friendly £20.99.

The special edition game comes two months after it was announced that an immersive Monopoly experience is coming to London, which will see you and your friends traipse a giant Monopoly board, completing challenges and 'buying' property.

Hasbro, who made the original game, has teamed up with production company Selladoor Worldwide, the team behind award-winning musicals Aladdin and We Will Rock You, for the exciting project.

At the time, it was confirmed that the real-life version of the game will last 75 minutes, but as for other details, the makers were keeping schtum.

David Hutchinson, chief executive officer, Selladoor Worldwide said: "We've been working for over a year with Hasbro on this exciting partnership, developing our concept and vision to bring one of the world's biggest board game brands to life in this thrilling experiential theatre landscape.

"Trends in our sector are moving in a very exciting direction with demand from a new generation of theatre-goers looking to experience live theatre differently and to be immersed in the world of the narrative in a different way."

He added: "I couldn't think of a better organisation to partner within this growing market, than the company who have brought together family and friends for decades to play some of their iconic games."
