Enter the world of Bugs, Tweety & Sylvester, Taz, Daffy, Road Runner and more with Looney Tunes Monopoly. The game has the same rules as regular monopoly with Looney Tune real estate offerings. We stayed up until 3am reviewing this game. Cutthroat buying, selling, bartering and begging were a must to survive. We had great laughs seeing one opponent get rich using his slumlord tactics, while another got desperate and a little despondent. All this over such properties as Bugs Bunny’s Rabbit Hole, Porky Pig’s House, Elmer Fudd’s Hunting Grounds, Marvin the Martian’s Planet X and the very coveted Sylvester’s Backyard. There’s still $200 to collect from passing Go, the Free Parking stash, and Jail, which actually was a relief to one player very low on cash… Buy it online atwww.USAopoly.com
