In a few words

Buy your favorite Ghostbusting contracts in this unique Monopoly game. Be the ghostbusting hero!  


Who you gonna call? When something strange pops up in the neighborhood, it’s up to you to check it out! Venture through New York City to win Ghostbusting contracts and team up with your fellow players to battle the ultimate ghost bosses, including Slimer, Stay Puft, Library Ghost, Vinz Clortho and more! 

The Ghostbusters Monopoly game fully immerses you into the world of Ghostbusters, featuring Roaming Vapor cards and ECTO-1 and Supernatural Entity spaces on the game board. 

Ghost Traps and Containment Units replace Houses and Hotels in this version of Monopoly for a genuine Ghostbusters experience.

What’s Included

A standard set of Ghostbusters Monopoly includes the following: 

  • 1 gameboard 
  • 6 collectible custom tokens
  • 1 Ghost Trap card holder
  • 22 Contract cards
  • 32 Roaming Vapor cards
  • 32 Ghost Traps
  • 12 Containment Units
  • 2 dice
  • 1 pack of petty cash
  • Game guide

The game requires 2x 1.5V AAA Alkaline Batteries. Demo batteries are included in the box.


If you enjoy the movie Ghostbusters, you will definitely appreciate the attention to detail put into this game. No inch of the game has been left untouched, with every aspect of traditional Monopoly having been transformed into something from the movie, affording players a full experience of the Ghostbusters world. 

Trade Ghostbusting contracts instead of properties in Ghostbusters Monopoly. Once a player has collected a full color set, they can then add Ghost Traps, which can eventually be upgraded to Containment Units. 

Ghostbusters Monopoly has a unique feature similar to boss fights. When a player lands on a Supernatural Entity space, they can team up with other players to battle one of a number of ghosts.


Price: Ghostbusters Monopoly costs $29.99, which can be on the expensive side for a game of adult Monopoly. However, this price is definitely justified with the license of official Ghostbusters merchandise. 

The game is also fairly niche since it pays so much attention to detail in the Ghostbusters world. As such, players who are unfamiliar with the Ghostbusters movie and its characters may be slightly lost in this game, especially since some of the gameplay mechanics involve Ghostbusters-related actions such as setting Ghost Traps and winning contracts.

Overall Review

We think that Ghostbusters Monopoly is a great add to any Ghostbusters fan’s collection. Alternatively, it can be an awesome gift to someone who is a fan of the movie, who will definitely appreciate the many references to Ghostbusters in this board game. For one, the six collectible custom player tokens will be a pleasant surprise for a die-hard Ghostbusters fan! 

Become the real Ghostbusters in this thrilling board game, where you can gather your friends to help save the world from paranormal activity. It is now up to you and your team to subdue the vapors, entities and slimers all around New York, where the original Ghostbusters movie takes place. What’s not to love? 

Suitable for players age 8 and above, Ghostbusters Monopoly can be the perfect family game for a lazy evening. Lounge around in the comfort of your home and save the world!
