Our daughter is now to the age where we want to introduce her to all the old classic board games we enjoyed as kids. But as I'm sure you know, after years of use and abuse, the standard cardboard-boxed board games start to disintegrate and playing pieces begin disappearing. Not to mention, storing all those large and different-sized game boxes becomes a hassle.

Therefore, I was pleasantly surprised when my daughter recently received two Hasbro Vintage board games for her birthday: "Monopoly" and "Clue."

For those of you old enough to remember the '3m Bookshelf' Games from the 1960's and 70's, Hasbro has taken the idea to a new level.
While the 3m Games (and other manufacturuers who followed in their shoes) were simply nicely-decorated cardboard boxes that could be stored on your bookshelves, the new Hasbro games are housed in sturdy wooden boxes that are designed to resemble leather-bound books. In fact, the Hasbro games look identical to my old collection of textbooks from lawschool - except for the words "monopoly" and "Clue" printed on their spine.

"Monopoly" contains all the playing pieces you're accustomed to (the money and property deeds are slightly smaller than in the classic version of the game), but the houses and hotels are made of solid wood rather than cheap plastic. The colors and finishes on the board, playing pieces, and printed stock gives the set an old-fashioned (dare I say 'vintage') feel.
"Clue" also has all the familiar playing pieces you've come to know, but in this case, everything appears to be the same size as in the classic version (as far as I can tell).

The only concern I have is regarding the construction of the playing boards.

I'm specifically reviewing the Hasbro Library Edition of Monopoly, which contains the same classic game as other editions, but is packaged in a book-like box for easy storage. This was a great idea! I've bought the rest of the Library Editions of the other classic games, like Risk. Great to pull out on rainy days, or nights with friends, and again, so easy to store. Great product!

My children are growing up and moving on, but we still enjoy 'family game night' when they come home for dinner, etc. We have always had Monopoly in our house, but our games are getting "tired"! They've been to several college dorms, assorted apartments, and always come back a few dollars short and alittle more worn. Wanting to have the game still here at home, and yet make a presence that isn't 'a kids playroom' I was thrill to find and order the vintage addition of Monopoly! My daughter had purchased one for herself and said, "Mom, you gotta get this!" and she was right! I'm in the process of renovating my home -- kids are grown, time to upgrade! I'll save the old game, I still have one heading off to college in the fall, but this is so beautiful, I can keep it right on the bookshelf of my entertainment center! No more 'in the back of the closet'! I can't wait to purchase the rest in the series. It's going to last a lifetime and then some!
