Games publisher The Op has collaborated with Toho International for the North American launch of Godzilla tabletop games “Monopoly” and “Jenga.”

“Since the 1950s, Godzilla has spawned a worldwide fan base,” says John M. Davis, president and chief executive officer, The OP. “Today, with our games, older fans can nostalgically relive childhood memories while introducing their families and younger generations to the world’s most revered monster.” 

In “Monopoly: Godzilla,” players will vie to collect kaiju in their settings such as Rodan on Monster Island (formerly known as Boardwalk) and Mothra on Infant Island (formerly known as Park Place) in order to reign supreme. They will pick one-of-six collectible movers such Godzilla, Mechagodzilla and King Ghidorah to navigate the “Monopoly” game board. In “Jenga: Godzilla,” classic gameplay ensues with the added threat of Godzilla marching toward the tower with each block pulled.

“Seeing what The Op has done to bring the world of Godzilla into these classic games has been such an enjoyable experience,” says Chris Mowry, associate brand manager, Toho International. “The way they adapt the brand into these games to make them original and fresh is sure to please fans of all ages.”

“Monopoly: Godzilla” and “Jenga: Godzilla” will be available throughout North America in specialty stores this spring, with a $39.99 and $19.99 MSRP, respectively.
