1. The Barbie Monopoly game has already been preordered over 1,000 times last month. What’s so special about it?
Just like other licensed Monopoly games including Star Wars Monopoly and Mario Bros Monopoly, Barbie Monopoly uses the classic Monopoly layout and strategy while adding plenty of custom pink properties and specialty cards.
Players will choose from six “Be Anything” cards and travel the hot pink game board using six Barbie game tokens including a pink high heel, roller skate, dog, boat, Barbie bust, and car. And instead of building red hotels, you’ll build pink Barbie Dreamhouses ー though no mention of Ken’s Mojo Dojo Casa House here!
Kids ages 8 and up can play this game, with two to six players.
2. Amazon has the cheapest price online for Barbie Monopoly — and it ships the fastest. (But this is on sale now for cheaper for a limited time!)
Right now, Amazon and Walmart both have the lowest preorder price for this item, just $24.86. But Amazon gets the edge with an earlier arrival date and a Pre-Order Price Guarantee. Amazon will honor the lowest price offered between now and the Oct. 1 release date, no matter which way prices go. Plus, they guarantee preorders will arrive by Oct. 2.
Even without an Amazon Prime membership, you can get Barbie Monopoly by Oct. 2, but shipping would cost you $6.99. By comparison, Walmart offers free shipping to everyone (even for non-Walmart+ members), but your Barbie Monopoly will arrive later, on Oct. 7. So if you don’t have either membership, you’ll have to decide between free shipping and getting the game sooner.
3. Shopping in store at Walmart on Oct. 1 to get it fastest.
So if you want to get your hands on Barbie Monopoly the day it releases while also getting the lowest price, shopping in-store at Walmart is your best bet. Just make sure to call the store to make sure it’s already in stock before making the trip.

4. Steer clear of eBay; sellers are already trying to charge more than double for the game.
5. Expect lower prices on Barbie Monopoly compared to other special edition Monopoly games.
When not on sale, classic Monopoly is priced at $21.99 on Amazon, which is $3 less than the MSRP for Barbie Monopoly. However, other specially licensed Monopoly games tend to be more expensive than the preorder price for Barbie Monopoly. Here’s how other special edition Monopoly games are priced:
- Lord of the Rings Monopoly, $44.50 on Amazon
- Game of Thrones Monopoly, $34.87 on Amazon
- Disney’s The Little Mermaid Monopoly, $27.99 on Amazon
- Pixar Edition Monopoly, $26.99 on Amazon
6. Save up to 50% on special edition Monopoly games during Black Friday sales through the middle of December.
According to the Amazon price tracker, CamelCamelCamel, special-edition Monopoly games go down in price every November through December on Amazon.
For example, Pixar Edition Monopoly dropped from $26.99 down to $13.99 on December 9 in the last two years. Additionally, Lord of the Rings Monopoly dropped from $44.50 to $21.00 during Black Friday sales last year. Also keep an eye out for board games to get marked down as much as 53% during the Target Semi-Annual Toy Sale (which happens every June/July and December/January).
