Monopoly has been released in many alternate forms from the original money collecting version, even the original has seen a few alterations. Versions that are centered on Notre Dame football, Star Wars, The Legend of Zelda, Adventure Time, and far too many more to name here. With the plethora of Monopoly versions out there, one segment of the population has been ignored, until now. Thanks to Late for the Sky, Cat lovers now have the opportunity to play Cat-Opoly.
Unlike the original Monoploy, the goal is not to collect all of the money and bankrupt the other players. Instead, the players simply play to purchase cats, many rare and exotic, and collect litter boxes that can be traded for fish bones.
“Land on Catnip and collect everything in the center of the board.
Collect Litter Boxes and trade them in for Fish Bones.
“You may have to pay dog tax to get past the neighborhood
bully, a spike collared bulldog, or worst of all, you may fall in the water and be out for three turns.
“Cat-astrophic!… there’s nothing madder than a wet cat! Cat-opoly is great fun for family and friends. “
According to the company website, Cat-Opoly can suit up to six players from ages 8 and up.
Metro shared that some of the cats available for purchase in the game include the Ocicat and the Persian. Others include the Egyptian Mau, Russian Blue, Norwegian Forest Cat, Siamese, and many more. Rather than being sent directly to jail, the players “fall in the water,” where passers by are “just prowling.” Rather than “passing go,” players “pass scat.” Free parking is replaced with free catnip. The railroads have been replaced with stray cats, scaredy cats, cool cats, and copy cats. Instead of paying taxes, you pay to rid yourself of fleas. Cards in the middle, the community chest and chance cards, are replaced with cat-astrophe and purrrfect.
The infamous game pieces from the Monopoly game are still present. However, instead of a thimble and race car, players can choose from a milk bottle, sardines, cat food, a mouse, and a ball of string, according to the Huffington Post.
Dude I Want That shared that Cat-Opoly is purrfect for any cat lover.
“Cat-Opoly is a Monopoly for people who really, really, really like cats. And cat videos, cat memes, cat selfies, cat forums, cat Reddit threads…”
It seems that even Ed Sheeran received a copy of Cat-Opoly as a gift, stating it is one of the best presents he has received.
In addition to Cat-Opoly, Late For The Sky has many other Monopoly variations as well, including Bird-Opoly, Bug-Opoly, Dino-Opoly, Penguin-Opoly, Dog-Opoly, and many more.
