Product Description

Amazon.com

The back of the box poses the question, "What would the Monopoly game be like if it were invented today?" One could sum up most of the difference in one word: inflation. If you're used to playing the traditional game, you might feel a little woozy handling Monopoly money denominations that start at $100k and top out at $5 million. Players are no longer vying for control of Atlantic city but now the entire U.S., from sea to shining sea. Entry level properties like Baltic and Mediterranean Avenues, which sold for $60 back in the day, have been replaced by Texas Stadium in Dallas and Cleveland's Jacobs Field, each selling for $600,000. The most disturbing piece of property for sale in this game is the White House--one can only assume it's someone's subtle political humor. Railroads have been replaced by airports like O'Hare and JFK. Utilities have been supplanted by cell phone and Internet service. And, of course, the game pieces have all been updated: laptop, cell phone, hybrid car, commuter coffee mug, jumbo jet, super size fries. Gameplay, however, is still the same. The idea is to buy properties, build houses and hotels, and charge other players rent when they land on your land. Thankfully, transactions are still handled in cash and not by some convoluted electronic banking scheme. There's a lot of changes here that will make cynics and traditionalists sour. That's okay. The original game is still available to them. What's interesting about this edition is that it brings back a kind of jaw-dropping thrill--one that made this game a household word in the middle of the Great Depression, when people dreamt of becoming a millionaires. This game will let you dream of becoming a billionaire. --Porter B. Hall

It's still a great family game.

While the Monopoly concept doesn't change in this version, the updates to the properties is great.

The up-dated Monopoly had to come some time, and this made a great game still great to play. I am still a fan of the original, but I enjoy this version too.

I have to agree with some comments about the money being harder to use, and that is true. However, I think it is a minor problem. The extra zeros on all the denominations make things a bit tough to work out, but this is something one gets used to when they play it a few times. The modern highrise buildings, (rather than houses and hotels), are a great little touch, allowing you to build "up" rather than across.

The new locations are great, and the new up-dated pieces are fun. Being made of metal, they are very durable too. The board folds in quarters, which is pretty common these days, (rather than in half with some of the older designs).

Overall, this is a great version of Monopoly and adds something to the experience. Although I would not abandon the original version for it, it is a great game.

As an owner of over 30 monopoly sets, I've played some pretty bad versions. The here & now edition is not one of them. I enjoyed the national locations rather than confinement to a single city that I've never been to. The updated tokens are great, too. I did find myself wondering why PB didn't decided to go global with the locations, though, as the current economy is so globally dependent... Doesn't really detract from the game, though.

One problem I had (and the only reason this gets 4 stars) is that the money was cumbersome if you're very used to the classic denominations. All of my sets except this one use the standard 1-5-10-20-50-100-500 scheme, whether it's dollars, galactic credits, hobbit money, whatever. Switching to large money values is great, but I think they should have at least left the 1-5-etc scheme, so the money could have been $1000, $5000, $10000 etc. This would help tie the old versions with the updated-ness of the new version, allowing a connection between those of us who have been playing the classic sets for years and the people who are just starting.

Overall, nicely executed idea that could have used a bit more globalization and more familiar money.

Imagine this: ice-covered streets, no computer or television access and a pack of snowbound teens. This game literally saved the day. They played it for hours. Then they played it again the next day...and a week later. It has come in handy more times than I can say.

How and why this appeals to them more than traditional MOnopoly is not totally clear but here are some key factors:
1. It is a total revamp of the old MOnopoly

2. The cost of living increased 10,0000 fold. There are some different types of cards and new businesses such as Starbucks, Laptop computers and othe items are included. Whatever the reason, any board game that keeps groups of teens safely inside in cold weather and having hours of fun is a major plus!

This game is a break from the traditional Monopoly game, I like the new spaces and the landmarks from around the Nation. I couldn't help notice a few things that I would have done differently:

1.Make the paper money larger for ease of handling

2.A lazy susan for the deed cards (like in Monopoly Deluxe Edition)

3 The game board be folded in 2 sections instead of 4 (less creases)

4. make the tokens larger (my friend has big fingers had a hard time moving his token)

Other than this i have to say that the game was still fun and challenging, and really cool to land on known landmarks instead of the traditional street names.

If anything grab this game and leave it wrapped as a collector item (as it was a limited edition!

Verified Purchase
Have played the game for over 50 years and this version was a refreshing change. Unfortunately, the increased dollar amounts were frustrating for my young kids (that are just learning addition, money, etc.) as making change, buying properties, etc. seemed way more complex to them. They like the old version with 1's, 5's, 10's, etc. - they didn't enjoy this version as much as I did. That's the only reason it keeps me from giving it 5 stars.

I kind of like the classic version of Monopoly. In the Here and Now edition everything is more pricey but you get more money to start with - this is where I don't like it - You are put in a bad situation because you are handling too many pieces of monopoly money.

The new design of the board is nice and attractive. Also the metal pieces are a plus.

Monopoly is a great game and I love it! only bad thing is it takes a LONG time to finish the game.

Compared to the original version, this version is more colorful, attractive and unlike the plain board of the classic monopoly this one is better in terms of its pictures, and color.
For those who do not own a monopoly: This is a great version to get especially when the price is not significantly higher than the classic. You will love the colors.
OH I almost forgot... the modern attractions/ property is great also! Instead of the old properties (which some do not exist anymore) you get modern places such as Times Square, Fenway Park, and JFK airport.
