Fortnite has always been collaborating with companies, people, and more all around the world. From Balenciaga to Space Jam, this game is known everywhere. Recently, multiple in-game leakers have found some recognizable back blings in the files which can be obtained with something else in the real world: Monopoly.

This collaboration marks the third collaboration with the infamous board game Monopoly and the battle royale video game Fortnite. This board game collaboration is not yet out and is planned for December 1, 2021. Like the other two Fortnite Monopoly games, building is still a thing and so is the storm, which takes over a point of interest every time somebody passes “go”. If somebody lands on a point of interest that is taken over by the storm, they will take damage. You can heal with med kits, which you can get with the action die. Instead of buying property, the game replaces those with points of interests on the actual Fortnite map and Monopoly Money is replaced with Health Points, or HP for short. According to Hasbro’s Fortnite Monopoly instructions, “The action die lets players pick up health packs, build walls, and damage their opponents. Every time a player passes “go” they unleash the Storm; avoid it or lose HP. Like in the Fortnite video game, the last player standing wins!”

Unlike the old Fortnite Monopoly games, this one has updated points of interests from the 1st and 2nd maps. It also features actual pawn stands, instead of paper photos like the old Fortnite Monopoly games. This game also features plastic HP instead of paper ones and the game ends when everybody has lost their HP except for the last person, who would be the winner. The box resembles a supply drop, which lands on the island in game and drops loot when opened. If somebody were to purchase the Fortnite Monopoly Collector’s Edition, they would get a code which they would redeem on Epic’s website. After logging into the website and redeeming the code, if they were to log into Fortnite, they would get the normal Monopoly tokens as a back bling in game. These back blings in particular are Scottie Dog, Rubber Ducky, Hazel, or Cat, T-Rex, Penguin, Racecar, Top Hat, and Battleship. All of these back blings come with the board game free of charge, and just stay on the player’s back. Wearing any of these tokens doesn’t give you an advantage, nor a disadvantage. According to Target’s description of the board game, “Code can only be used once; only 1 code can be redeemed per account; code expires Aug. 30, 2024.”

In conclusion, the Fortnite Monopoly: Collector’s edition is worth every single penny- for yourself, or a Christmas present for somebody else. This board game stands out from the rest because of the Fortnite Tokens, updated map and healing, and the eight back blings that can be redeemed in game
