- Board games don’t get much more classic than Monopoly, right? Well, this Star Wars edition, Monopoly: Star Wars The Child, Board Game is inspired by “The Mandalorian” on Disney+ and it will let you play the classic game as one of your favorite Star Wars characters, Grogu! Travel around the board, buying and selling Hideouts and Common Houses and following the actions on the Camotono cards and Bounty Puck cards.
