Sing Along When You're in the Zone
Part of Monopoly Revolution's appeal is the music that plays during certain moments in the game. When you land on one of the board's designated zones, you'll hear music. For example, in the Car Zone, you'll hear excerpts from the Beatles song, "Drive My Car." Each zone has its own theme song that plays before you're given a chance to buy properties, pass Go, or go to Jail.

Game Unit Manages Your Money
Monopoly Revolution features a Game Unit that manages all cash flow electronically, so you don't have to mess with stacks of paper bills anymore. As a result, the game reflects today's marketplace and economic trends, giving younger generations of players real-life lessons in managing cash flow.

Instead of carrying cash, players will all receive a debit card. The Game Unit lets players know their individual balances during transactions and when they pass Go. This game update makes for a tidier playing area, yet still requires players to budget their resources smartly.

Modern Playing Pieces
Monopoly Revolution's playing pieces have retained the familiar shapes of the classic version, but they have been redesigned with some modern flair. Now sleeker and easier to handle, the pieces are transparent and upright, adding another contemporary touch to the game.

An Updated Classic
Despite the electronics and modern updates, Monopoly Revolution retains the essence of the original game. Buy properties, build houses and hotels, borrow money, and seek to own as much as you can. Rest assured you'll still enjoy the good old-fashioned thrill of watching your opponent land on your hotel-laden properties--and adding to your bank account.

What's in the Box
Monopoly Revolution game board, game unit, six player pieces, two dice, six game cards, 30 title deeds, 32 house figures, 12 hotel figures, and instructions.

Oh Monopoly, such good times lasting 100000 hours. So, they tried to revolutionize Monopoly a bit. Here is the good, the bad and the ugly.

The Good:
Electronic device that allows you to use Debit Cards instead of Money. The game unit has music which makes the game a bit more fun. Meh. The new rules make the game move a little faster. Now, when you land in a space you have two options, buy or auction it. This will, at least, take 1 hour out of the game.

The Bad:
No more Free Parking money. But, my friends and I made a rule that anyone that landed in Free Parking will get an X amount of money. The game unit will make it a bit harder to keep track of your money, since you can't see it. So, much like real life, when you buy, buy and buy without noticing your depleting bank account.

Two almost-see-through dice with silver colored-dots. This is a face palm moment. The dots are hard to distinguish in low light and sometimes, even good lighting. We just got new dice and threw these ones away. They are worthless.

The Ugly:
Boring game pieces, they are all the same shape with some crappy images on them. I like actual and singular game pieces. They are more fun.

Very little educational value. No more real money you can touch and count. This game no longer teaches kids how to count and keep track of money. Wasn't that one of the objectives of the game? Now, it just teaches them how to use a debit card and barely keep track of their money.

Other games have been able to better update. For example, I like the new version of the The Game of Life Twists & Turns. Not so for Monopoly. I think I will go back to my old monopoly. The more I think about this Monopoly, the more faults I find with it. My friends were thoroughly bored with this version and pleaded to get an old Monopoly.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This is basically Monopoly with a few changes to try to modernize the game and, my guess, to appeal to the younger generation more accustomed to video game consoles. You have a round board instead of the rectangular board but essentially the same spaces on it as the original game. The hotels and houses are still there and you have cardboard deeds to collect as you buy the properties on the board just as you do with the original game. You even roll dice. However, with this game you have "credit" cards and an electronic gadget that you insert the card into to pay or receive money. Paper money has been eliminated. The gadget is also used when you land on "chance" spaces and selects a chance for a player on demand. It also will randomly, while the game is being played announce a "chance" for the current player.

How did it play? After 3 or 4 turns, my family was bored and frustrated. No one knew how much money they had. They wanted to plan strategies around what properties to buy and how much to bid in an auction but without the ability to count their cash on the fly, they either bid more than they had or just didn't bid at all. I didn't have any younger children playing but felt the loss of using a game to reinforce learning simple math and money management. The electronic gadget to read the cards and play chances reminded me of 1990's electronic handheld games. The display is small and difficult to read. The sound is tinny and annoying. Hooray for the beep feature (you can turn off the sound and just play a beep). You have to take out the batteries when not playing and the place to insert the batteries requires a screwdriver to open and close it.

I grew up playing and enjoying Monopoly in the 1970's. Over the years I have picked up a couple of the themed monopoly sets like NY Mets Monopoly that replaced the familiar squares with that the names of Mets players. This newest version of Monopoly is a fun new twist on the classic game which is different enough from the classic game to make in worth playing but true enough go the original game to make long time monopoly players like myself feel right at home.

The major differences:

The board is round.

The "game unit" is round with a number pad on top. It is battery operated. Instead of using money people are given "bank" cards that are put in the game unit. These cards show how much cash you have and are used to transfer cash from one person to another. The unit has a screen which makes noise. You hit a button when you pass go and money is added to your account and the game unit makes noise.

If you take a "Chance" words come across the screen telling you what happened replacing the Chance and Community Chest cards in the old Monopoly. I think the new technology is fun and different and adds to the game but when I was a kid being a banker helped me learn to count out money so I do miss that aspect of the game. Also, the noise of the game unit became a bit much for me at times.

The board is divided into four zones. When you land on a zone space (which used to be Chance or Community Chest) you can either give all players in the zone a Chance (similar to the old Chance or Community Chest option) or you can go to the next unopened property and put it up for auction. If all properties are owned you can force a deal or swap one property for the other. This opens up the game and makes it go faster. I like this change.
