Monopoly: Despicable Me, SGD49.90

Quirk of the Month: Minion Monopoly

Call me a predictable tourist, but I cannot leave a theme park unless I purchase something from the souvenir shop. Look what I got from last month’s trip to Universal Studios Singapore—Monopoly: Despicable Me!

Monopoly: Despicable Me, SGD49.90

It’s like your regular Monopoly game with a few loony twists. Instead of traditional dice, you use the Minion spinner to determine your moves. You collect Banana Bucks and the properties come straight from the film, such as the AVL submarine, magnetic ship, and… the moon! The property tokens are cupcakes and ice cream sundaes. The goal is to become Gru’s favorite Minion. Best of all, the Minion tokens are just so darn cute!

Did somebody say, “Banana?”

Just in time! Minions, the prequel to Despicable Me, is coming to theaters this July, and brands all over the globe have been taking advantage of the Minions craze. Watch the trailer below.

Now who’s up for game night? What are your favorite board games?
