The board game will honor of the 35th anniversary of the Garbage Pail Kids.

The Op and The Topps Co. have inked a new licensing agreement for Garbage Pail Kids that will see the characters taken into the world of “Monopoly.”

The game, called “Monopoly: Garbage Pail Kids,” celebrates the 35th anniversary of the Garbage Pails Kids and features characters from the Garbage Pail Kids trading cards and stickers reminiscent of the ‘80s and ‘90s. Fan-favorite characters such as Leaky Lindsay and Adam Bomb make appearances throughout the game.

“As long-time fans of Garbage Pail Kids, we are excited that other fans of this pop culture classic will be able to immerse themselves in, and enjoy the iconic tabletop Monopoly gameplay experience,” says Maggie Matthews, senior vice president, licensing, The Op.

In the game, players will vie to collect famous Garbage Pail Kids characters. The ‘Monopoly’ tokens have been replaced with collectible movers, including fish bones, the overflowing garbage can, guillotine, swirly dog poop, zit goo tube and melting eyeball.

“Today, many of those young fans are nostalgically reliving childhood memories and reconnecting with the brand,” says Ira Friedman, vice president, global licensing, Topps. “They’re going to get a kick out of this bold mashup between GPK and ‘Monopoly.’”
