Just in Time for the Holidays – DFTG’s Top Ten “Nerdy” Picks for Monopoly Lovers
Monopoly is a game that has been around for generations. It has become a staple in most households that could either mean a peaceful night in with friends and family or, if you’re in my boat, it could mean World War 3 has commenced. Either way, everyone knows about Monopoly but what many may not know, is that there is an entire world of the beloved board game exclusively for gamers and “geeks”. From Game of Thrones, to Mass Effect, even some Halo action in there. Here are our Top Ten Picks for the Monopoly editions that are perfect – especially for the holidays:
