I am delighted to report that news of incomparable game night excellence has reached this writer’s ears. If the rumors are to be believed, the honorable Hasbro is planning to release not one, but two new games inspired by the Netflix series Bridgerton, just in time for the show’s second season debut on March 25.
Now you may be wondering, dear reader, what game night follies could possibly encapsulate the experience that is Bridgerton. The first game to make its grand entrance shall be Monopoly: Bridgerton Edition. In this version of the classic real-estate game, players will promenade to decadent locations around Regency London, attempting to raise their social standing by snapping up properties faster than you can say “Lady Featherington in florals.”
The tokens are shaped like items from the series, while game spaces include spots such as Danbury Ball, Hastings House, and the Boxing Gym. Of course, there are “Lady Whistledown” cards, too. If you are the last player with coins, you win the game.
The true drama and scandal of Bridgerton, I dare say, comes alive in the second subject of this letter, Clue: Bridgerton Edition. Get ready for secrets and rumors worthy of Lady Whistledown herself as you help the anonymous gossip queen uncover the scandal of the season.
Can you use clues to correctly identify which young lord or lady is the subject of this scandal, how they were caught, and the location of the trist? Throughout the game, Scandal cards help players get closer to solving the mystery. But no one is safe when Lady Whistledown is involved: Players who draw a Scandal card must also confess a salacious tidbit about themselves, such as the story of their first kiss. The first player to make the correct accusation wins the game.
Both of these new games will make their societal debut this spring and will cost $27.99 each.
