Monopoly: Pirates of the Caribbean

PiratesMonopoly.7.12.06.jpgPirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest is kicking booty at the box office. We haven't seen it yet, and although we've heard mixed things from friends, there's one thing for sure - kids absolutely love that movie.

Case and point: This weekend a pack of six-year-old schoolyard chalk hooligans tagged a road in our neighborhood with the message "Pirates: Beware!!" We didn't know hot-pink was a proven pirate deterrent, but it seems to have worked ( so far ).

Anywho - we just came across the Pirates of the Caribbean flavored Monopoly board game [on Amazon] , and it hit us that this could be the perfect time to introduce the kids to the classic game that taught all of us the basics of money handling. We're not quite sure why pirates are eating-up real estate, but hey, that's not really the point, is it?

In the Company Spokesman's best pirate voice: Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate's life for me! The fate of the Caribbean lies in your hands now, matey. Buy, sell and trade key locations from Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean movies -- Curse of the Black Pearl and Dead Man's Chest -- including Port Royal Prison, Barbossa's Treasure Grotto and Tia Dalma's Shack. Are ye brave enough to outwit yer scurvy opponents and avoid the legendary Kraken as ye battle for total control of the pirate-infested Caribbean? Argh, properly warned, ye be, says I.

The Pirates of the Caribbean edition of America's favorite board game comes complete with 6 collectible pewter tokens featuring Jack Sparrow's compass, Pirate skull, the dog with keys, the Black Pearl cannon, Davy Jones' chest, and Jack the Monkey. Rules include a 60-minute speed play option for a shorter game with the same amount of fun. Set sail for the adventure of a lifetime with Jack Sparrow, Davy Jones, Barbossa and all your favorite sword-wielding pirates in this Pirates of the Caribbean Collector's Edition of the world's most popular board game, Monopoly. Savvy?
