Nintendo is Monopolised

Tuesday 8 August 2006
A special collector's edition of the classic board game Monopoly has been created that stars the finest heroes and villains from various Nintendo games.

Mario, Luigi, Link and Kirby all appear on the board, with the two moustachioed brothers taking up the prized Park Lane and Mayfair squares. Even the pieces you guide around the board have been Nintendoed, with Mario's cap, Link's iron boots, Donkey Kong's barrel, a Hylian shield and a Koopa shell all having been recreated in pewter.

The board game is currently available on this US website for $35.95 (about %26pound;19).
