Don't pass "GO" without Sesame Street Monopoly

Move over, Boardwalk and Park Place, I want to own Sesame Street!

By Derek Stucker, Product Developer for USAOPOLY!
June 4, 2004

How do you get to Sesame Street? Would you believe pass “GO” and collect $200? America’s favorite street meets America’s favorite board game in the all-new MONOPOLY: Sesame Street 35th Anniversary Collector’s Edition! Now Sesame Street fans old and new can buy, sell and trade their favorite and beloved locations from Oscar’s Trash Can and Big Bird’s Nest to Charlie’s Restaurant and the Furry Arms Hotel.

Own the Street! Pre-order Sesame Street Monopoly from Entertainment Earth.
The classic MONOPOLY game play remains the same, but the look and feel of MONOPOLY: Sesame Street 35th Anniversary Collector’s Edition has been lovingly customized with all the fun and nostalgia of the ground-breaking show that’s still entertaining and educating millions today.

Starting off with the tiny Twiddle Bug Windowbox, players make their way around the colorful game board, encountering such coveted properties as Sherlock Hemlock’s Detective Agency, Super Grover’s Phone Booth, Mumford’s Magic Shop, The Count’s Castle and Elmo’s World. Boardwalk and Park Place, the most highly valued properties in the traditional MONOPOLY game, are replaced by prominent Sesame Street landmarks 123 Sesame Street and Hooper’s Store. Special Sesame Street transportation takes the place of the traditional MONOPOLY railroad spaces, from the Sesame Street Subway and Bus Stop to the Furry Monster Ferry Line—just remember you’ll be riding Oscar’s Taxi Service at your own risk!

Players buy and sell these cherished properties with new, customized Sesame Street money. From Super Grover boldly gracing the $1 bill to Big Bird on the “big money” ($500 bill), favorite Sesame Street characters and their signatures are featured on each denomination.

Street Smarts cards take the place of MONOPOLY’s traditional Chance cards while Community Chest is transformed into Block Party. Both sets of cards feature the same directives as their classic predecessors but now offer a unique Sesame Street twist. Don’t eat the letter of the day or you’ll have to go directly to Jail. Sell Oscar your trash for some quick cash or collect from every player when you sell tickets to Zoe’s dance recital.

The platform inside the box features fun trivia and little-known facts about your favorite Sesame Street characters. Speaking of characters, get ready to play as Big Bird, Cookie Monster, Oscar the Grouch, Super Grover, Bert or Ernie with his rubber duckie. Custom collectible pewter playing pieces of the characters allow players to assume the identities of their favorite characters as they play to “own it all” in this first collaboration between USAOPOLY and Sesame Workshop. Suggested retail price for the game is $35.99. MONOPOLY: Sesame Street 35th Anniversary Collector’s Edition, made by USAOPOLY under license from Hasbro Properties Group this Fall at specialty stores like Barnes & Noble and Hastings Entertainment.

Derek Stucker helped develop this game for USAOPOLY!, official licenser of Monopoly games based on favorite characters and themes from around the world.
