The Hasbro Monopoly Tropical Tycoon DVD Game puts a new and exotic spin on the classic game of Monopoly. It is just as fun and competitive as the original, but it adds a feature DVD and special new features for an even more exciting gaming experience. Recommended for ages 8 and up, and designed for 3 to 5 players, this game will have you rushing for pieces of real estate in a tropical paradise.

Monopoly With a Tropical Twist
Monopoly Tropical Tycoon is played with classic Monopoly rules: each player must invest in property, develop housing, and compete with the other players for control of the map. This time around, however, everything's been renovated with a vibrant tropical theme. The utilities, for example, are now solar and water power. The properties are beaches, forests, casinos, piers and the like. The tokens have also changed, and now include a parrot, sail boat, parrot and other tropical items.

However, the changes aren't just cosmetic -- there have been some serious gameplay changes as well! The DVD adds a storyline and narrative to your game, immersing you completely in the tropical vibe. Community and chance cards are now given over the DVD, too. Each player is now given special abilities as well, depending on which "job" they have chosen at the beginning of the game. All these extra features makes the game even more fun and engaging than the original Monopoly.



Play the classic Monopoly game with a new vibrant tropical theme, including new tokens and properties.

If the houses and hotels are not changed but just colored differently: that doesn't make it a fully customized game.

For instance, instead of Chance and Community Chest cards being in hard-copy, one clicks the icon on the corresponding DVD icon to bring up the result.

This was a very nice deviation from traditional Monopoly, as it really felt like we were learning the game all over again.

My husband and I loved this game!! Besides the love of the tropical theme, it has different features that the original is missing. The biggest change is that it now uses a DVD instead of chance/community chest cards. All the properties are names of beaches, railroads are beach transportations, and utilites are solar power and wind power. The new tokens are the parrot, beach hat, scooter, cannon, flip flop, and sail boat. But enough about the pieces, lets talk game play.

The first thing you do is roll and the DVD will tell you which "job" you have (mayor, artist, surfer, developer, police chief)- each has their own bonus. Then you roll like you would normally- but if you look at one of the dies there is a TV picture on it. That means you choose the News Update on the DVD and stuff happen. There was a lot of decisions that the DVD asked of you that can effect the current player or somebody else. The game is much quicker due to some new rules (ie landing on Free Parking you can pick any unowned property and purchase it) and you can choose to develop tourist attractions(casino, pier,etc) instead of beach houses/resorts. These tourist properties can bring in some bucks too!

The bad news: The first kinda downer is that it is 3-5 players (which is hard on a couple like to play games together). Pieces looked a little cheap (plastic houses/hotels/piers etc and cardboard fortune pieces) hopefully they will last. Money tray still doesnt hold all the money options- not a big deal, just annoying. Some of the news update stuff is a little silly, but cute.

I felt like this was a fresh breath of air to a game that can feel pretty tedious after awhile. I would recommend to anyone who enjoys monopoly!

What an awesome game! We played this as soon as it was unwrapped (as a Christmas gift). It was so nice to have a different version of an old game, but also have the rules pretty much the same. We love the fact that we could stop the game anytime and declare a winner. Monopoly has a tendancy to drag on & on and get quite brutal, but this was a fun and interesting interactive game that we will play over and over. Great for anyone and everyone (over 8 yrs old). Would recommend this game to all who love to play video AND board games!

Monopoly 'Tropical Tycoon' ("MTT") is a DVD-driven version of the perennial original Monopoly. The object of the game is to obtain 'fortune tokens', which are amassed by accruing properties; making 'decisions' when asked to by the DVD; landing on Chance or Community Chest; and cashing in your remaining money at the end of the game. Along the way you can build 'beach houses' (houses) and 'resorts' (hotels); however, the game introduces four new buildings: the casino, the pier, the restaurant and the park. These can be built when the player owns a monopoly over a respective property group. All of them, ultimately, are there to make money (of course). They also vary in 'fortune token' value for those concerned about the end-game.

But what about the DVD, you ask? Well, the DVD introduces a number of new aspects to the game and re-invents a few of the old ones. For instance, instead of Chance and Community Chest cards being in hard-copy, one clicks the icon on the corresponding DVD icon to bring up the result. Further, new to the game is the introduction of a 'News Update', which is triggered by rolling an icon resembling a television on one of the two dice provided. These updates are nothing more than a Chance or Community Chest card in disguise, albeit prefaced with an irritating news update. Upon subsequent replays, these updates become tedious and repetitious. The result for the casino, pier, park and restaurant cards is also brought up on-screen through the DVD menu. The higher the value of your property with the expansion on it, the more you will be paid.

Against the backdrop of this panoply of expansions, you play Monopoly as per usual. Once again, the dice is king.

I recall Monopoly from my childhood and this updated version was much more appealing.

The DVD option was nice because it was a new twist but at times can slow the game down while you wait for the outcome. You do have 'choices' on Chance which wasn't available on the original card versions.

I've played it twice since I purchased it and it has been a great time and seems to go faster than the original.

Received for Christmas and is great and fun, but ours contained two of the same game piece (sailboat) and no scooter. Also, the money tray doesn't have enough slots for all the money denominations.

I bought this game as a christmas present for the kids and somehow we didn't get around to playing it until just last night! It was a lot of fun for all of us. I liked the interactive Community Chest and the fact that you can stop playing at any time. It has several features the standard monopoly doesn't have besides the obvious DVD feature. You now are awarded fortune tokens for different events which can help you win in the end even if you don't have the most money/property. I was the first to go bankrupt last night, but that just makes me want to play again!
