October 7, 2021 – There is now A Schitt’s Creek Monopoly Edition. Publisher The Op announced the details today. “The hottest family in town gets a humble new dwelling and a second chance.” With this new board game players will get the chance to relive the award-winning comedy series. Buy, sell and trade your favorite locations from the show with tokens like Moira’s Wig, David’s sunglasses or the Rosebud Motel Key.
Yes, this isn’t groundbreaking because it is just another one of the hundreds of themed Monopoly games available but the production is fantastic, lots of thought went into all the different things you can customize and this is a great opportunity to tap into something that everyone loves. This is certainly a fun gift for any Schitt’s Creek fan.
MONOPOLY®: Schitt’s Creek Edition is for 2-6 players, ages 14 and up, and unlike everything on David’s Christmas list, doesn’t require a pre-order. Get a virtual Monopoly on this town and pick it up for $39.99 at your local game store or from The Op’s online shop!
Originally premiering on January 13, 2015 this Canadian TV show from real life father and son team Eugene Levy and Dan Levy quickly became a cultural phenomenon. The show starred the two creators as Johnny and David Rose, alongside the great Catherine Ohara as over the top Moira Rose and Annie Murphy as the stuck-up princess with a heart of gold Alexis Rose. It took some time to warm up to the Rose family, but once you were with them you were with them hard. Running from 2015 – 2020 (80 episodes), the show garnered tons of awards and endless praise.
If you have not heard of the program you might have been living under a rock, because it has reached full on cultural classic status. Not only does it definitely deserve the Schitt’s Creek Monopoly Edition existence, but it has gotten to the point where you can dress your kids like them for Halloween and people know exactly what is going on (see below)
The Monopoly version of this delightful family is most likely about what you suspect, but check out the full description from the publisher The OP for more details:
When your so-called “business manager” leaves you high and dry and you have nothing but a ration of designer clothes, a rescued wig collection, and oh alright, your family, the most logical solution for maintaining any quality of life is obvious: fall back on the small town you once bought as a joke. That is if you’re Johnny Rose, which is what the self-made patriarch had to do before humbly regrouping his clan to Schitt’s Creek.
But even if you aren’t plucked from the spoils of a successful family business, “It takes a brave man to face defeat when his ego is so battered and bruised” as Mr. Rose (and your next game night guests) will have to learn. MONOPOLY: Schitt’s Creek Edition lets you relive the highs and lows of the Rose Family’s small-town life, and it’s available now from The Op!
Join Johnny, Moira, Alexis, and David on a taxing journey of personal highs and lows as you buy, sell, and trade quirky locations from the multiple award-winning comedy series. Houses and hotels are few and far between, so you’ll want to set up Improvements and Renovations on properties such as the Rosebud Motel and Elmdale Inn. Capitalize on trusty Café Tropical, or clean up in more ways than one at Rose Apothecary. Ew, David!
Six collectible tokens take you around the board as you move with Moira’s Wig, Ted the Turtle, or Rosebud Motel Key. You can also play it cool as David’s Sunglasses, lead the pecking order with a Bebé Crow, or simply be the best with Patrick’s Guitar. Buy up transports like the Rose Family Car or Roland’s Truck instead of railroads, and hope for helpful circumstances through Love That Journey For Me and Hello You cards in place of Chance and Community Chest. Stack up custom rose-adorned Monopoly money and bankrupt all your “little townie friends” to win! In a neighborhood with only one doctor, plumber, and realtor, you can become the last player left with any cash faster than The Jazzagals can break into song.
