Monopoly Theme Packs

Guest Author - Lynn Little

The Monopoly playing pieces have become as iconic as the game itself. Little has changed since the game was introduced in the 1930s. The first Monopoly games did not come with playing pieces. It was the intention of the Monopoly inventor Charles Darrow that people could just use everyday household items like buttons and pennies to mark their place on the game board. Mover tokens were added shortly after Parker Brothers bought the game. In 1937, the die cast metal game pieces were added to the game.

With the addition of many themed Monopoly games, the game pieces underwent a transformation much like the game board. These theme versions are fun ways to enjoy Monopoly. If you only have the original Monopoly game but would like some variety when it comes to game pieces then you are in luck.

Parker Brothers has released themed Monopoly game piece packs. They include six Monopoly game pieces. There is a Monopoly Limited Edition Dog Theme Pack featuring six die cast breeds like the beagle, German shepherd, and Scottish terrier. Instead of houses and hotels, there are dog houses and pet carriers. The standard Monopoly money gets a doggy face lift.

There is another theme Monopoly pack that is for the sports fan. The six die cast pieces feature sports related items like a baseball glove, a soccer ball, and a tennis racket. Instead of houses, you have award cups. There are trophies instead of hotels. Sports-themed Monopoly money is also included in the pack.

The themed packs are useful for those who have the original game and may be missing some game pieces. These sets are great for replacement game pieces or for adding something special to your original Monopoly game. The themed packs could be a nice gift for the Monopoly aficionado in your life.

The Monopoly game pieces have undergone many transformations with the various themes throughout the years. Now with the theme packs you can dress up the standard Monopoly game. The themed packs can be gifts for the Monopoly die hard or can be game piece replacements.
