Justice League Monopoly - 1999

It's Justice League Monopoly!

I used to own a copy of this game way back when, and the five spot featuring our hero was one of the first things I ever posted on the Shrine.

But at some point I seemed to have misplaced it, so F.O.A.M. member Russell Burbage helpfully took a bunch of shots of the game and sent them in for all of us to enjoy:
...its certainly a very handsome product, well designed and featuring nice stock art by Eduardo Barreto. And you get to be Aquaman in the game! (Note: I never realized how Riddler-y Green Arrow looks)

My friend Chris and I used to play the game back in the day, and we would always grab the Superman and Aquaman pieces (respectively) like the obsessive little nerds we were.

Thanks Russell!

Possibly due to poverty at the time, or an overdose of thin merchandising involving Martian Manhunter, I kept passed up this game on the rare occasion I found a copy. Must reconsider that, as J'Onn clearly got props here beyond an (*ahem*) token appearance.

I actually STILL have this game, a long-ago gift from my wife. Haven't played it in eons though.

My daughter opened this up on her alone when I wasn't around because she wanted to play it. I had it "mint in box" for years...! Still, once it was open I played it and played with it, eventually taking these pictures. So I can't say I'm not happy she opened it now...

I'm extremely fond of this game, we play it all the time, my son has to be Superman and I am always Aquaman. THe gals fight over Wonderwoman...

I collect comics. My son collects Monopoly games. needless to say, my son won this battle and we opened it up a few years ago so he could play it. I forgot that this was pre-JLU licensing, so the JLA would include Aquaman! - George

Love this game! I just played it with my nine year old step son.

He beat me! But at least I owned all the Aquaman properties during the game!
