Assassin’s Creed Monopoly: Connor Would Be the Iron
According to Polygon, this Monopoly set, made with the theme of Ubisoft’s famous stealth series, is going to feature six assassins instead of the game’s traditional game pieces. That means that Altair, Ezio, Connor, Aveline, Edward Kenway and Arno are all going to have their own game pieces and will have to land on locations famous to the franchise. Instead of Monopoly money, you will trade Abstergo credits with your friends. Unfortunately, Shay Patrick Cormac isn’t included as a Monopoly piece, but he’s a Templar and an Assassin hunter anyway.
If the official Monopoly makers at USAopoly really wanted to make this board game really like the series, they would’ve done two unnecessary sequels to it starring just Ezio so they could reuse all the same pieces and make more Abstergo credits (just kidding).
Unfortunately, USAopoly has told Polygon that Assassin’s Creed Monopoly is going to be exclusive to Europe. That’s right, a company with “USA” in its name is making a Monopoly game (which was originally based on Atlantic City, NJ) a European exclusive. It looks like they’re trading those Abstergo credits for Euros. There are also upcoming versions of Monopoly being made with The Legend of Zelda and Pokemon themes.
