Star Wars Monopoly takes the much-loved gameplay of the classic game and adds all your favorite characters, spaceships, and locations from a galaxy far far away. 

Of course, there are tons of different Star Wars movies and TV series so there are also loads of different versions of the game – some of them even take the rules of Monopoly in a whole new direction.   

If you are wondering which version is the best one for you, or what the differences are between them, then stick around as I run through every Star Wars Monopoly game from the latest back to the very first. 

1. Monopoly: Star Wars – Boba Fett Edition

  • Year: 2021
  • Players: 2-4
  • Age: 8+

The latest in the series of Star Wars Monopoly board games, the Star Wars Boba Fett Edition celebrates the legendary bounty hunter and the galaxy of characters he has encountered. As you move around the board you’ll collect not properties but characters from Episodes V and VI of the Star Wars movies and The Mandalorian TV series.

It seems that Hasbro is moving towards cardboard tokens, houses, and hotels (or in this case, sigils and skulls). While this is better for the environment, it does give the game a cheaper feel than those sets that use plastic and metal playing pieces.

2. Monopoly: Star Wars – The Child Edition

  • Year: 2020
  • Players: 2-4
  • Age: 8+

First things first, the name of this game refers to the character of ‘The Child’ (who you may well know as ‘Baby Yoda’), rather than it being a kids’ or junior edition of the game. That being said the design is likely to appeal to children with a large illustration of The Child taking up much of the board. 

The gameboard features places and objects that will be familiar to fans of The Mandalorian series on Disney+ but I was disappointed with the quality of this set in comparison with previous games. The character pieces are cardboard cutouts with a plastic base and there is no tray for money storage in the box. This may be an attempt to reduce plastic use but it means all your cards and money get mixed up when you pack the game away, which is pretty annoying.

3. Monopoly: Star Wars The Mandalorian

  • Year: 2020
  • Players: 2-4
  • Age: 8+

Another version of Monopoly based (as you might have guessed) on The Mandalorian TV series. This edition adds to the classic Monopoly rules to create a whole new board game experience where you have to protect ‘The Child’ from enemies.

You can pick from a range of characters from the TV series, like The Mandalorian, Cara Dune, IG-11, or Kuiil. Your character choice affects the gameplay more than in standard Monopoly since each character has a different special ability which can be further enhanced if you get ‘The Child’ token. 

The new rules offer a nice twist on the standard gameplay and see you entering into battles with your Imperial enemies. The quality of this set is good with plastic imperial credits that are a nice alternative to the usual paper money and decent quality plastic character pieces.

4. Monopoly: Star Wars Complete Saga Edition 

  • Year: 2019
  • Players: 2-6
  • Age: 8+

This version of the game covers the entire Skywalker saga with characters and places from all three of the trilogies. The gameboard is a bit bland in my opinion with just a black space scene across the middle, the properties in this game are planets and droids whilst Tie Fighters and X-Wings are used instead of houses and hotels.

The tokens are nicely made from metal and are a mix of characters from the different trilogies including Darth Maul, Padme, Han Solo, Luke, Leia, Chewbacca, Darth Vadar, Rey, and Kylo Ren.

My main complaint with this version of the game is the decision to make the buy price and rent value of a property the same. This isn’t the only version to do this, and it is common in junior editions of Monopoly, but I feel that it overly simplifies things and spoils the classic gameplay. 

5. Monopoly: Star Wars – Han Solo Edition

  • Year: 2017
  • Players: 2-4
  • Age: 8+

This version of the game focuses on Han Solo’s adventures throughout the galaxy and was brought out to tie in with the movie ‘Solo’ starring Alden Ehrenreich in the role made famous by Harrison Ford. 

It’s a fairly faithful representation of the classic Monopoly gameplay with the standard amount of spaces around a colorful board that has large illustrations of the 4 main characters. The Community Chest and Chance cards have become Scoundrel and Smuggler cards whilst properties are represented by Star Wars locations, vehicles, and power sources. The playing pieces are really detailed representations of Han, Chewy, Lando, and Qi’ra, they are plastic.

6. Monopoly: Star Wars 40th Anniversary Special Edition

  • Year: 2017
  • Players: 2-6
  • Age: 8+

Hasbro released this version of the game to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the original Star Wars movie. As you would expect there are a whole host of characters and places from the classic space saga. 

The aim of the game is true to the original Monopoly game as you build Fleets and Bases in place of houses and hotels whilst avoiding going bankrupt. Force and Smuggler’s Cargo cards take the place of the classic cards. The playing pieces in this edition are either droids or spaceships, including the Millenium Falcon, Death Star, and R2D2. They are small but detailed and are nicely made out of metal. 

7. Monopoly: Star Wars Open & Play

  • Year: 2015
  • Players: 2-4
  • Age: 8+

The unique thing about this Star Wars Monopoly game is the design of the clamshell box which allows you to simply open up the box and play straight away. It is a great feature that has slots for the dice, playing pieces, and money and makes it particularly suited to anyone that likes to play Monopoly on the go. It’s a fantastic travel Monopoly game.

In this game, the playing pieces are different spaceships from around the galaxy. The gameboard features famous places from the Star Wars universe including Hoth, Tatooine, and Kashyyyk. 

There are a few Star Wars twists to the rules like the ability to use the Force to perform special abilities which let you swap, steal, and collect extra money. 

8. Monopoly: Star Wars The Force Awakens 

  • Year: 2015
  • Players: 2-4
  • Age: 8+

The eagle-eyed amongst you will have spotted that this is the second Monopoly game released in 2015. But, they are very different games and I think this version looks great. In a break with tradition, the board is circular with nice pictures of various planets in the center and big illustrations of a Star Destroyer and Millenium Falcon around the edge. 

Players choose to fight either for the Rebel Alliance (Luke Skywalker/Finn) or the Empire (Darth Vader/Kylo Ren) and this will affect what part of the cards you read. It is actually the first-ever Monopoly game to be played in teams, with teamwork and strategy playing a big part in the game. 

9. Monopoly: Star Wars – The Clone Wars 

  • Year: 2008
  • Players: 2-6
  • Age: 8+

I really like the design of the game board for Monopoly Clone Wars, it features loads of different characters beautifully drawn in the center of the board, whilst the spaces around the edge look a lot like classic Monopoly. The gameplay is also very true to the original and will be instantly familiar to many.

As a Clone Wars game, there is a slightly different range of character pieces with this game and the models are all quite fun with flailing lightsabers being the order of the day. Characters include Captain Rex, Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi,  Ahsoka Tano, General Grievous, and Asajj Ventress.

10. Monopoly: Star Wars Saga Edition

  • Year: 2005
  • Players: 2-8
  • Age: 8+

Released when the Saga consisted of just six movies, this set is made to a really high standard and features some of my favorite game pieces from any of the games. They are beautifully cast in metal with some great poses and there are eight characters from across the first two movie trilogies. My favorite is a lovely Yoda piece. 

The gameplay itself is pretty true to the original and the game board design is one of my favorites. If you want to make the game a bit more Star Warsy there is an optional rule to use the Force when you roll a double which allows you to do things like use a Jedi mind trick to collect extra tokens.

11. Monopoly: Star Wars Original Trilogy Edition

  • Year: 2004
  • Players: 2-8
  • Age: 8+

This Star Wars Monopoly set uses characters, vehicles, and locations from the original trilogy. The Chance and Community Chest cards are known as Rebel and Imperial cards, while the Jail space is Tatooine.

This is a good quality game that’s not dissimilar from classic Monopoly. It has quality pewter tokens representing Darth Vader, Lando Calrissian, R2D2, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Grand Moff Tarkin, a Tie Fighter Pilot, a Tusken Raider, and Luke Skywalker

12. Monopoly: Star Wars Episode II 

  • Year: 2002
  • Players: 2-8
  • Age: 8+

This Star Wars Monopoly game was only released in Europe, making it one of the rarer Monopoly sets on this list.

The game that represents the Attack of the Clones movie is of a high standard when it comes to the pewter playing pieces. There is an impressive range of eight characters to choose from and the artwork on the board is great. 

This version of Monopoly is fairly unique as it adds a new Star Wars twist with the special Force dice (in addition to the normal dice) which is a nice variation on the usual gameplay.

13. Monopoly: Star Wars Episode I 

  • Year: 1999
  • Players: 2-8
  • Age: 8+

Released to coincide with the release of The Phantom Menace, this version of Star Wars Monopoly features beautiful pewter miniature game pieces to represent Anakin Skywalker, Jar Jar Binks, Qui-Gon Jinn, Queen Amidala, Darth Sidious, Battle Droid, Darth Maul, and Sebulba. 

The gameplay is fairly standard with apartments and towers to replace the houses and hotels whilst Jedi and Sith cards take the place of the Chance and Community Chest cards. The quality of the pewter playing pieces make this set worth seeking out for fans of the prequel trilogy

14. Monopoly: Star Wars Classic Trilogy Edition

  • Year: 1997
  • Players: 2-8
  • Age: 8+

This version of the classic game features some great game pieces with X-wings and Corellian Freighters as houses and hotels for the light side whilst the dark side use Tie Fighters and Star Destroyers. The 8 character pieces are beautiful pewter miniatures of the most famous characters from the original trilogy including Obi-Wan and Boba Fett. 

The game has great Star Wars imagery but doesn’t stray too far from the classic rulebook.

15. Monopoly: Star Wars Limited Collector’s Edition 

  • Year: 1996
  • Players: 2-8
  • Age: 8+

It’s interesting that the first-ever Star Wars Monopoly game was titled as the ‘Limited Collector’s Edition’. It seems that nobody knew just how many different Star Wars Monopoly versions would follow!

You can pick up these games for just a few dollars second-hand, so they’re worth keeping an eye out for as the game comes with an eye-catching board that depicts an epic battle between spaceships. 

As with all the older games, the eight pewter character pieces are exquisitely detailed and are collectible in their own right. This version includes Chewbacca, Leia, and R2D2 amongst the options.
