Who wouldn’t love a Smurfs board game? My life changed forever in 1981, that’s when the Smurfs hit Saturday morning cartoons…for you young kids that’s the one day a week that cartoons were on, we didn’t have cartoon networks or TiVos if you missed it you were just out of luck. Any-who…I was totally obsessed with smurfs, I had the bedding, wallpaper (no really is was great), ALL the little PVC toys (which I still have), Shirts, backpacks, lunchboxes, hats, a belt (also my fav) & I even went to see the Smurfs on Ice! Basically my entire life revolved around the Smurfs. So you can imagine my absolute delight in finding one of my favorite board games is now been Smurfed! What could be better than my favorite childhood cartoon mixed with the best board game on the planet? Nothing!
So the basic monopoly game is the same it’s just all Smurfed out. It comes with custom Smurfy playing pieces that include: Papa Smurf, Smurfette, Brainy, Vanity, Grouchy and Jokey Smurf. Instead of houses & hotels you get to trade Smurf property like Papa Smurfs Lab, Smurfettes flower garden and Hefty’s weight room. The traditional money has been swapped out with Smurf berries (of course) & the board itself is totally tricked out with all the best parts of the show, it’s a trip down Smurf memory lane! It’s still for 2-6 players & for “kids ” age 8 & up. It’s perfect for family game night & the Smurfs add a fun twist to the classic monopoly game.
Clearly this will be on my Christmas list! You can get your own Smurfs Collector’s Edition Board Game Here.
