Monopoly City adds new twists to the classic board game. Designed for children ages eight and up, this board game will teach your kids about what it takes to be the best property developer and the work that goes into building their dream city. With the goal of owning the prestigious Monopoly tower, your kids will be learning important lessons about money while wheeling and dealing their way to the top.
Cool New 3-D Buildings
Build your own 3-D city in hopes of owning the prestigious Monopoly tower. View larger.
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.
