Carnival rolls the dice with cruise-themed Monopoly game

Mardi Gras is featured on the cover and the game board
Monopoly Carnival Fun Edition, a cruise-themed version of the classic board game, is now available.

The signature elements of the so-called 'Fast Dealing Property Game' game are all there but with a twist — 28 popular Carnival Cruise Line features and attractions, including BOLT, the first roller-coaster at sea, Cherry on Top candy shop, Lido Marketplace and JavaBlue Café, serving as landing spots for players.

Money emblazoned with Fun Ship funnel

Each of the spaces has a designated value and players purchase these properties with money emblazoned with the iconic Fun Ship funnel. There are also cruise director announcements and funnel chest cards with challenges and directions, while game pieces include a cruise ship.

'Everyone has played Monopoly and we’re excited to create this one-of-a-kind version that includes many of Carnival’s most popular on-board spaces that we’re sure our fans will enjoy,' said Andres Villalever, director of retail for Carnival. 'We’re always looking for new ways to celebrate the Carnival brand and when we had the opportunity to be a part of this custom-designed Monopoly game, we jumped at the chance.'

Monopoly Carnival Fun Edition is colorfully packaged with a giant image of the new Mardi Gras on the cover, as well as on the game board itself.

The price is $39.95 at Carnival's online retail site,
