Yep, we’re over hot girl summer and getting prepared for cosy girl winter, and now we’ve found the perfect thing to get us in the mood.
There are two things that are vital during Christmastime – Elf and boardgames. Now, our two Yuletide passions have been combined in the shape of Elf Monopoly.
Fingers crossed Santa puts this in our stocking for Christmas Day!
Once again we can join the adventures of Will Ferrell’s Buddy the Elf from the 2003 movie, with the festive version of the beloved family boardgame seeing us traverse the North Pole; passing through the seven levels of the candy cane forest, through the sea of swirly-twirly gum drops, and then through the Lincoln Tunnel.
This version sees us buy, sell, and trade your way to Christmas Cheer and Christmas Spirit to be the last one standing.
And the classic figures have been swapped in for more Elf-appropriate objects – you can now play as Santa's Sleigh, Polar Bear Cub, Jack-in-the-Box, Mailroom Coffee Mug, Santa's Bag, Maple Syrup.
Other changes see Houses renamed Apartments, Hotels renamed Skyscrapers, Community Chest Cards renamed Christmas Cheer and Chance Cards renamed Christmas Spirit.
We’re getting that festive feeling already! Is it too early to crack open the mulled wine?
Elf Monopoly is already available over Stateside, being retailed on Amazon for $35 (that’s around £25 here)/
However, the boardgame is being released in the UK on 15th August, as part of the long run up to Christmas.
The news was posted on the Facebook group Money Saver Online with many people tagging their friends in excitement over the new set.
“Son of a Nutcracker! Please can you buy me this if you see it?” one person implored their friend.
“Holy moly!” a second gasped. “Buy it and we won’t wait until Christmas to play it.”
Looks as if everyone else is as excited for Christmas as we are.
