Saban Brands and USAopoly today announced their collaboration for the upcoming Power Rangers Monopoly and Trivial Pursuit board games to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the iconic franchise. USAopoly has unveiled the first look of the box tops for the Power Rangers editions of each game this week at the American International Toy Fair in New York.
The Power Rangers 20 th Anniversary Edition of Monopoly will allow players to buy, sell and trade iconic locations spanning the entire history of the Power Rangers brand including The Command Center, The Power Chamber, Rita Repulsa's Moon Palace and more. The game is for 2-6 players and recommended for ages 8+.
Saban Brands ran a poll last week on the official Power Rangers Facebook page where thousands of fans voted for which final game token they wanted to be included in the Monopoly game. Options included Goldar, Mighty Morphin boots or the Angel Grove Juice Bar cup with straw. The winner will be revealed on Facebook, along with the other 5 tokens in the game leading up to the release of the game this summer.
The Trivial Pursuit Power Rangers 20 th Anniversary Edition allows fans to show off their Ranger knowledge by acing over 1,800 questions from six categories spanning the two decades of Power Rangers. Questions about Power Rangers gear, villains, quotes, plot lines and more are included. This game is for 2-6 players and recommended for ages 12+.
For the Trivial Pursuit edition, Saban Brands engaged the Power Force, a select group of Power Rangers enthusiasts, to help develop the trivia questions for the upcoming game. Saban Brands received thousands of questions from these 20 Power Force members, and each participant will receive credit in the game.
"There is such a nostalgia factor not only with Power Rangers but with the history of Monopoly and Trivial Pursuit games as well," said Elie Dekel, President of Saban Brands. "That's why we thought it would be fun to get the Power Rangers fans involved with the creation of these games. With this year marking 20 years of the franchise, it couldn't be a better time for this collaboration."
The 20 th Anniversary Edition of Monopoly and Trivial Pursuit board games will be available at specialty retailers this summer for the SRP of $39.95.
