CHOKING HAZARD -- Small parts. Not for children under 3 yrs.

Product Description


In 1934, in the midst of the Great Depression, an unemployed heating engineer from Pennsylvania created the game of Monopoly. Realizing that his get-rich theme might appeal to other Americans, he had the game printed and distributed in a Philadelphia department store. When he couldn't keep up with the overwhelming requests for more sets, he arranged for Parker Brothers to take over the game. And the rest, as they say, is history. But Monopoly is far from a quaint historical relic. To this day, it remains a riveting game of luck, chance, and savvy wheeling and dealing--all of which can make some lucky dog rich, rich, rich! Based on the purchase of Atlantic City real estate (a city currently renowned for its get-rich gambling opportunities), Monopoly is now printed in 26 languages with more than 200 million sets sold worldwide. Players still scoot the same beloved board pieces: the old shoe, the terrier, and the hot rod. This set also includes rules for a shortened version of the game and a new token, winner of Monopoly's recent "design a token" contest. This is capitalism at its most fun and ruthless, a must-have edition in the family game closet. --Gail Hudson

This Monopoly set was cheaply produced in China, as you might guess given its price. For a family looking for a first set, it seems satisfactory. But anyone who has played Monopoly for years should be on notice that this set, redesigned in 2008, includes several minor annoyances.

First, the most practical annoyance. The board folds up into quarters, which allows the manufacturer to fit the set into a smaller box, presumably to reduce production costs. But because the box is somewhat smaller (about 16 inches long), there is no room for the sort of convenient tray for Monopoly money that was once standard in the old boxes (which were about 20 inches long). This is annoying for both gameplay and storage.

Second, the producers have unnecessarily and inexplicably made small changes to the rules of the game -- rules that have stood for more than half a century. Landing on the Luxury Tax space used to cost you $75; now it costs $100. The new rules also change the numbers of each kind of bill to be apportioned to players at the start of the game -- and in fact, the game comes with a smaller supply of some bills.

Mention of this set's Monopoly money brings us to the third annoyance: the manufacturers made numerous gratuitous changes to the look of the game. The palette of colors used for Monopoly bills in the United States since the 1940s has been changed: The $10 bill used to be yellow; now it's blue. The $50 bill used to be blue; now it's purple. (These changes make it hard to reuse money from older Monopoly sets.) Among the other unnecessary changes to the look of the game: The formerly purple properties on the board (Mediterranean Avenue and Baltic Avenue) have been recolored brown.

Please feel free to read this review in its entirety, or save yourself some time and avoid this version of Monopoly and buy the "Monopoly - Classic" version instead. While it is about double the price, it is the game you know and love. The less expensive version (reviewed here) is a piece of garbage.

I regret this purchase. If you grew up playing Monopoly, you would be much, much better off buying "classic" or a used version. There are several major issues with this version, as well as some minor ones. If you buy this to teach your children one of the most beloved games of your childhood and a part of Americana, you are apt to be disappointed.

The major issues involve quality and design. The board itself no longer folds in two. It is cut to fold into quarters and barely sits level on a table. I do not hold out much hope it will last very long. The property cards are flimsy, made smaller than in the past, as well as being thinner. The Chance and Community Chest cards are also of poor quality, much thinner than their predecessors, and take on color changes, now being blue/white and orange/white, instead of the familiar yellow and orange, respectively.

The money is a big concern as well. The money is thin and there are not enough slots provided to use money in the bank during play, or to store after gameplay, and in fact there are raised areas in the plastic money tray which prevent the money from even sitting in the spaces. The raised areas are somewhat random and follow no logical pattern. So forget using the box/tray component for the bank during a game or storing money neatly. The tray is essentially useless. I have no idea what Hasbro/Parker Brothers was thinking here, and apparently neither did they.

Monopoly is often overlooked as a gamenight option these days, many people considering it outdated. But it's a classic for a reason, combining lucky rolls and strategy in a very unique way.
The fact is that most people don't play Monopoly by the correct rules, and that makes all the difference. The key to enjoying the game is the inter-player deals and politics. That's where all the fun lies, and much of the strategy. Any player can strike any kind of a deal with another player - want to trade all the purples and light blues for Boardwalk? No problem. Want to trick someone into trading a property you need for all your railroads? This is where the real enjoyment comes from. I encourage you not only to get the game and play it, but to read the rules and "get into" the game.
There are also some fun alternate rules you can use, such as collecting $400 (instead of $200) when you *land* directly on "go", or putting fine money (from chance cards, utility expenses, get out of jail money, etc.) in the center of the board and collecting it when you land on "free parking".
Don't overlook Monopoly as an outdated option. It's still one of the best games out there.

Size: Spanish version Verified Purchase
I was very disappointed with the quality of this particular game board. I own an earlier version (from the 80's) in Spanish and the quality is way superior. The cards for Community Chest and Chance are poorly made and they are not the original yellow/orange colors with the nice printing but multicolored copies with bad computerized printing. Boardwalk, the most expensive property on the game is not translated "Paseo Tablado" which is the proper translation but "Embarcadero". Even the money has bad printing and some kind of "M" symbol in lieu of the original monopoly dollar sign.
The only reason I kept it and did not return it is that I wanted to use it in my classroom with my students and I did not want to use my old set (which looks like a collectors item now). Otherwise I would have return it right away. needless to say the pics on Amazon were quite deceiving for the ones they show have the "Paseo Tablado" board and not the cheap version they actually send.
I am extremely annoyed - it was a waste of money.
I have read the comments about the "classic" version, but honestly, if you are going to have the pics of the "classic" version to sell the cheapo one, people are being mislead. Use the proper pics for each version, so customers can see what they are ordering.
