Epic Games and Hasbro have teamed up to produce a new instalment to one of the world’s favourite board games – with a battle royale twist. Get your wallets ready gamers, Fortnite Monopoly is has arrived to the party.
It’s pretty similar to the video game you might be used to already. Two to seven players can choose from 27 different outfits (skins) and battle to ‘pick up health packs, build walls, and damage their opponents’.

Fortnite Monopoly isn’t just a standard monopoly game with a few name changes and new paint job – it has a couple of Battle Royale-themed rules, too.
Just like the video game, the main goal is to be the last one standing. There’s a storm that, if it lands on your square, takes takes two health points off you – oh yeah, instead of money you have health points, of course.
Also, rather than both dice focusing on movement, one die will determine an action. This means players choose to either progress on the board or take action first, which includes shooting players with a Crosshair, using Bandages to heal, throwing a Boogie Bomb to damage all players, or building a Wall to protect yourself.
It’s available on Amazon. Good luck and enjoy.
