Product Description

Amazon.com

The Monopoly Electronic Banking Edition game combines the best of classic Monopoly with updated electronic transactions. As with the original version, players still operate with money, learn real-world economics, competition and strategy, try to stay out of jail, and try their best to get filthy rich. But this version has been updated to reflect changes in how the real world uses money: All transactions are conducted with Monopoly's new banking card system. Anyone from age 8 and up will enjoy this updated version of one of the world's most famous games.



Updated from the original game, the Banking Edition features updated tokens, money system, and more. View larger.

Classic Fun with Modern Twists
Aside from the electronic banking, the basic rules of this game have not changed from the Monopoly everybody remembers. Tokens, houses, hotels, chance and community chest cards, cardboard property deeds -- if you've played the classic version, you'll know how to play. The board is different in how it folds up in the box, but once you spread it out, it's the same.

The tokens have changed to reflect today's culture. Instead of irons and racing cars, the tokens depict modern icons such as a Segway and a tin of Altoids. Instead of railroads, there are airports. The utilities are Internet service providers and cell phone services. Properties have also been updated -- from the upscale blue Times Square to the economy purple Texas Stadium. In this game, you can go to jail for identity theft or lose $1 million when a virus infects your computer network. And of course, property values are exponentially higher than in the original game.

The big switch, of course, is the electronic banking. Each player starts with $15 million in their bank card account, and the banker adds amounts (such as when the player passes go) or subtracts (such as when the player pays to get out of jail) by inserting the player's card in the plus or minus slot of the Banker Unit. When one player has to pay another player, the banker debits or credits each account as appropriate.

Monopoly for Right Now
The electronic banking is neat and easy to handle, and as an added educational bonus, the player who takes on the banker role will quickly become familiar with basic bookkeeping concepts. The bank cards operate more like debit than credit, so players will learn responsible money management, not how to run up credit card debt.

This version of Monopoly doesn't play significantly differently than the original. The game can still take hours to play, and the instructions offer several alternatives for those who want speedier play. The updates introduce a few elements of surprise along the way, but for the most part it's still the same great Monopoly that will provide the same kind of family fun with some surprising, up-to-date twists.

Pros

  • Same basic game play, but with up-to-date references
  • Electronic banking works well, easy to learn
  • Teaches responsible money management
  • Fun for both kids and adults
Cons
  • Player customizations might not work with the new version
  • Updated references will eventually become out of date, too
What's in the Box
Game board, electronic Banker Unit, 6 tokens, 28 title deed cards, 16 chance cards, 16 community chest cards, 6 Monopoly bank cards, 32 houses, 12 hotels, and 2 dice.

The game is very fun and the kids absolutely love playing it.
Veronica Miller
Loading the plastic debit cards each time you want to do a transaction takes 2-3x longer than just handing over paper money.
Nathan Beauchamp
Aside from that, the game still works and we still have fun playing it!

While this might at first appear like a gimic, Monopoly with electronic banking makes, setup, cleanup and playing so much easier.
No money to count out. Transactions are done through the well thought out banking calculator.
It's also a nice touch that the money has been increased to thousands and millions to account for inflation.
This might not be the choice for Monopoly purists, but it's a lot of fun.
The only pet peeve of mine is the board that is "split" to fold smaller. These are now used in most Monopoly sets and they just don't hold up as well as the traditional folding board and the split is an annoyance when playing.
Still this is a great Monopoly set.

This is great since you don't need to have all the money everywhere, but it still takes time to enter in all the payments, etc. Now to be fair, there are only three of us playing at a time and this may make a difference. If there were many people playing, or even a person just being the banker and not playing, it would be better. You are still waiting to have the banker enter in the values and such, so the play time is still slowed down.

There is no real money-counting educational value to the toy since it's just like using an ATM machine, more or less. You do have to do some math when deciding whether to buy a property or upgrade to more houses or hotels.

The real (and only) plus to this game is that you don't have the money all over the place and you don't have to count it out in the beginning or put it away at the end of the game. This was all I expected when I bought the game so we're perfectly happy with it and enjoy more room on the table. Worth the money? Absolutely! :)

We are all long time Monopoly players and had so much fun with this modern version. My only two suggestions for playing this game are to have someone only be the banker (because you will be busy) and get ready to have lots of fun and laughs.

Monopoly gets a facelift in this new version of the classic game: railroads are now airports, utilities are now web providers and the property titles have been changed to places like Waikiki Beach and Hollywood (although the color schemes and ranking system stay the same) . Rather than dealing with small denominations, players now toss around millions of dollars, as everything seems to in denominations 1,000 times greater than the original game. A fan of the classic game will find these new innovations interesting, as seeing how the

The only problems I had with the game resulted from the new electronic banking system. The biggest flaw is that everyone's debit card looks the same. When one player lands on a "collect X from each player" card and the banker gets handed 6 cards, it's very easy to get them mixed up. When my family played, we had to stop twice, back up and do an audit to correct errors my sister made controlling the banking system. The e-cash also kills the Free Parking Rule, where players put taxes and fines in the middle until someone lands on Free Parking and collects it. We adapted by giving the player who lands on Free Parking the same amount of cash as passing Go, but something is lost by not getting to see the pot in the middle grow.

We bought this for our teenagers 3 months ago and they cannot stop playing it. It is the best version of Monopoly ever! I haven't played Monopoly since I was in my 20s and though I loved the concept of the game I hated sorting and picking up all the money, set up took so long that by the time I was set to play I didn't want to play anymore. I wanted my kids to enjoy Monopoly and I thought this was a great solution.

This game is pricey and I read all of the reviews on here before I bought it. I almost didn't buy because of some of the complaints on the reviews. However, I took a chance and after loving this game I thought I would comment on the negative reviews and their complaints:

First complaint: "The electronic banking takes a while to do transactions." It makes me wonder if they read the directions on the machine and realize that you can put cards in the negative and positive slots at the same time, type in the amount being transacted and it will automatically deduct and add to the appropriate cards. Besides the 2 cards that say, "Pay Each Player 500K", I don't know how that can be slower than actually exchanging paper cash!

Second Complaint: "One person has to be the banker and I never know how much is on my card." The banking device is the size of a calculator and we do not designate a banker we just pass the machine to each person during their turn. We have not played with more than 3 people so maybe when you add more people in this is harder. But if you want to keep track of how much is on your card; have the banker tell you your amount after each transaction and WRITE IT DOWN!

I was so excited when I first saw this toy advertised! My husband and I have a small collection of Monopoly games, so thius seemed like the perfect gift this Christmas. We opened before Christmas though- we just couldnt wait! I really liked that the game was so much less messy without all the paper money. The problem I had with it was that my husband, the banker, always knew how much money I had, and I felt a loit less in control of my money. We ended up passing the "credit card machine" back and forth and that helped a little. It was just not as interactive without the paper money and the game got boring really fast. Maybe we will try it out again and change our minds, but for now it will sit in the game closet with the rest of the monopoly games.
