SpongeBob SquarePants Monopoly is a rather surrealistic merging of the capitalist board game and the loveable cartoon character that, rather unexpectedly, works really well!

Monopoly is a game that requires the player to move around the board, using dice to determine how many spaces to move, buying properties, building hotels and houses and charging and paying rent. Having started with a set amount of (fake) money, the aim of the game is to be the richest person at the end of the game, making money by buying all the properties in one area, ensuring that they collect all rents due to them and increasing the values of the properties by building on them. However, players must be careful to ensure that they do not overextend themselves and be left short when they need to pay rent or a fine. The game is addictive and long-running, with changes and reversals of fortune seeing players rise to dizzying heights of wealth and plunge to near bankruptcy with just a few throws of the dice.

This version of the game combines the cutthroat financial wizardry with the loveable character of SpongeBob SquarePants and the other characters from the hit children's cartoon, set in the quirky location of Bikini Bottom, making it more accessible and fun for younger players. Instead of the classic locations based on real life cities, the game features properties from around Bikini Bottom, such as the Krusty Krab and the Chum Bucket plus many more sure to be dear to viewers' hearts!

One excellent feature is the use of the centre section of the board as a kind of window into the goings-on of the town. Small interactions take place, characters walk past and younger players will feel as though they have been privileged with a glimpse into the lives of their favourite television characters.
