Mindfulness is coming to the classic Monopoly board game
For me, playing Monopoly is very nostalgic. It reminds me of rainy days when I played board game with my family for hours. I remember everyone was just as competitive as ever, insisting that their the rules were the right rules to follow. And how happy I would be to collect the rent for my hotel in Mayfair…
Three years ago, Marmalade Game Studio launched the official version of Monopoly on mobile and tablet. The iconic game, loved by all generations, regularly tops app download charts around the world.
Today, the board game embraces mindfulness with the launch of a new Enchanted Forest version of the best-selling mobile game. Players can get away from it all and add some magic to their real estate empire as they delve into a dreamy fairy tale land – but the competition is still very much there.
The game’s latest theme, which has been downloaded over five million times, replaces the usual properties with trees, mushrooms, pumpkins, beanstalks and the tree stump castle. Players can enjoy the brand new setting with winding rivers, butterflies, bees, glowing flowers and dappled light, as they negotiate their way around the board. Properties are expensive because space is at a premium for magical creatures in our modern world.
The game developers have designed new magical characters for the enchanted forest, and players can choose from the gnome magician, the enchanted frog, the sneaky fox, and the snail courier.
Although Marmalade Game Studio came up with an all-new theme for the game, many well-known classic rules still apply, including the need to collect and pay rent.
Cristina Mereuta, co-CEO of Marmalade Game Studio, said: “Developing Enchanted Forest has been a real pleasure for our team, and we look forward to helping players get into the moment with some Monopoly awareness. It’s a great way for families and friends to get together and welcome the new season with a little pixie dust.
If you’re like me and want to bring a magical piece of nostalgia with you on the go, try the Monopoly Enchanted Forest theme. Available now on iOS and android from digital editor Marmalade Game Studio.
