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.
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.
Awesome service. One of the best purchases I've made on amazon. I received it within days of my purchase. 5 starsPublished on July 14, 2012 by Brenda
