Cool New 3-D Buildings
Monopoly City is exactly like classic Monopoly in lay out, rules, and gameplay--roll the dice, move your character around the board, and try not to spend too much time in jail or go bankrupt! However Monopoly City has also made several neat changes, with newly named properties, new monetary values, futuristic buildings, and new playing cards.

Whereas with the original version of Monopoly Park Place was one of the most prestigious properties to own--with Monopoly City you will be striving to acquire a permit for the fancy Fortune Valley. The buildings are modern and 3-D, and the currency has much higher values, ranging up to five million dollars--no small change here!

Instead of property deeds, you acquire permits for the zones you'd like to build in, and this latest version also includes an electronic trading unit, making it possible to hold "public" or "private" auctions for your properties and districts.

Learning Important Values While Having Fun
Monopoly City is not only fun for your kids and the family, but it also teaches important lessons and values about money--including the work and planning that goes into building their own dream city. We also like that this board game includes several new fun features like the electronic trading unit and updated cards. Long-time Monopoly fans will find these new twists fun and interesting. And for those who are just learning how to play, the game is certain to become an instant hit.

What's in the Box
Game board, six movers, buildings, 22 District cards, 25 Chance cards, six Reminder cards, one Rent Dodge card, two dice, one money pack, and one trading unit with instructions. (Batteries not included.)

If you get all the properties in two colors, you can buy the Monopoly Tower to double your rent for all your properties.

We started playing and quit after a few turns because the rules were very confusing.

Disclaimer: I believe there are two types of Monopoly players. There are those who understand the balance of luck and strategy, who actively trade early in the game, desperately haggle for monopolies, aggressively but calculatingly build houses, greatly enjoy the game and finish almost every game around an hour and a half. Then there are those who refuse to trade, rolling around the board until all property have been purchased from the bank, slowly if ever build houses, don't particularly enjoy the game and *shockingly* can't ever seem to finish a game UNDER three hours. This review is primarily for the former group, if you are from the latter hopefully you will still find this review helpful, but please take things with a grain of salt.

A few thoughts:

1. The money conversion was a horrible failure. Monopoly "modernized" this version by inflating every $100 to equal $1,000,000. While players will adjust to the difference after several rounds there are lasting pitfalls, the money system doesn't seem to "connect" to anybody except Donald Trump and Oprah. For some reason calling rent for $240,000 doesn't connect with people the way calling for a legitimately large sum of $700 did in the original.

2. There is no need for cash management. Spend, spend, spend. Another monetary shortcoming of the game - you start with almost $4000 in original monopoly terms! While I know consumer Americans (I myself am one of them) don't like to be restrained by limits, and the creators wanted to allow players to begin to build immediately, this is an obscene amount of money and destroys the need to wisely manage you cash. In fact, they had to create a stupid randomizer to LIMIT how much property people could buy because money is no longer an object.

Hasbro has spammed a new Monopoly game: Monopoly City. Much of what you love (or hate) about Monopoly is still here; but be warned: this is not traditional Monopoly. The game play and strategies are quite different.

The goal of Monopoly City is to make your opponents go bankrupt or to have the most money when a predetermined time has been reached. Thus, the objective of Monopoly City is identical to its predecessors. But how you achieve that goal will differ substantially.

Players can still pass "GO" to collect M2 million. {Yes, I said, "M"--that's the iconography for Monopoly money.} Also players can still go to jail or land on free parking. Landing on free parking gains you a "get-out-of-rent-free" card. The two tax spaces (luxury and income) have been replaced with two industry tax spaces. You wil have to pay if you own any industry buildings.

Note that the board is also different. Not just the names of the properties (which is really just chrome), but the center of the board is now a playable development region.

There are several color coded squares in the center of the board. This is where you will be placing your fancy-dancy new buildings.

And those new buildings are definitely fancy! To improve a lot, you will need to erect a few industrial or residential buildings.

The amount of rent a property is worth is based upon how many of these buildings you have developed. But there are more buildings than just the residential and industrial!

There are the hazard buildings.

Placing a hazard on a development area renders the residential buildings to be worthless. Who wants to live next to a dump or a prison? You can protect your investments by building special buildings.

after many years of Monopoly play, the old version has become tired & somewhat boring. this update & makeover makes Monopoly interesting again. at first, the new pieces seem complicated, but once u get into the game, u can see the basic Monopoly game in there.

the ability to buy houses/hotels which are now buildings & skyscrapers right away without owning the whole color group makes the game start up quicker. the new hazards & bonus buildings add an extra dimension for play as well as the new twist for railroads.

the new beeper/timer also adds fun & the expanded layout & taller buildings add a nice new visual element to gameplay.

my only gripe is the print on the deed & chance cards is rather small.

but overall, a great make over of an old favorite.

Our family loves regular Monopoly. We don't even mind how long it usually takes because we have a dedicated game table and can leave a game out for days. We were intrigued by Monopoly City. We've played it several times now. It took two "practice games" before we felt comfortable with the rules - most of which are an improvement over the regular game. City moves much quicker than the regular version. We've just completed a 3.5 hour game which ended when only one player was liquid. That's pretty quick, for Monopoly.

However, some tweaks are still needed. City includes new pieces, called Bonus Buildings (red pieces) and Hazards (black pieces - seriously, must the "bad" pieces be black?) that impact the value of one's buildings and rent charged. There are two additional pieces (stadiums and railroads) that are also red. IMO, they should have been a different color as it does get confusing (the railroad, the bonus wind farm and bonus water tower are very similar in shape and identical in size and color but only two of them impact rent). Also, in City, improvements are built in the middle of the board so players must roll the dice outside of the board. Ok, fine, we could manage that - but some of our taller buildings still toppled from time to time. Also, the properties are located in the middle of the board. In some occasions they are not close to their corresponding place on the outside of the board. This will take some adjustment on our part.

We also find the electronic buzzer (used to determine how many properties one may buy on one's turn and to time auctions) to be annoying.

We are positive on the game but feel that these issues will be noted quickly and a new version of City will be out soon!
