This lay-out combines all the classic features of the all-time favorite Monopoly game--tokens, deeds, houses, and buying and selling, with Narnian themes. Players of the classic game will have no trouble with this adaptation, as the principles are all the same with a flair that will bring The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, as well as Prince Caspian, back to your reflections. The money is Narnian money, the tokens are articles from the two movies, and the Chance and Community cards are now replaced by Magician's Library and Magic Tree cards. Three generations of our family played this together, and all except for the six year old maintained interest throughout the game. If you like Monopoly or love The Chronicles of Narnia, this game is an excellent choice for yourself or a gift for a Narnia fan.

I didn't even know they had made a Narnia version of Monopoly, but as soon as I spotted this one, I had to buy it.

The game play is exactly the same as the regular version of Monopoly. There are no special rules. However, I absolutely loved being able to revisit my childhood.

As with most of the special versions of Monopoly, the theming is what sets this apart. All the properties are from the first two Narnia books. Okay, really, they are based on the movies that have been released already. I wanted to buy them all. I have such fond memories of the books, I couldn't stop buying. Yes, that did help me win, why do you ask?

Unfortunately, the theming doesn't follow all the way through the game. The cards are now Magic Tree and Magician's Book, which is fine. The money has Aslan on it. The six tokens aren't quite as compelling as I had hoped for. But the big disappointment once again are the houses and hotels. Renamed cottages and castles here, they don't look any different.

My biggest complaint is that this is the movie tie in version. All the properties and references are from the two movies. As much as I loved those movies, I would have preferred a Narnia Monopoly that ties into all seven of the books.

But that didn't stop me from enjoying this game for exactly what it is. If I ever lose, It will break my heart. Narnia is just too precious to me.

My boys love this game. It has all the places mentioned in Narnia and a few we never heard of. Its the exact same concept as Monopoly, on a Narnia version. Only downfall is the moving pieces, they are similar and small and hard to pick out when playing the game. With the background kinda dark and colorful the moving pieces blend in and are hard to find. All in all its a good purchase, and you will enjoy it if you like Narnia.

My 11 year old son received this for Christmas. He absolutely loves all things Narnia, and therefore loves to play this game!!! A great game for both Naria "freaks" and monopoly lovers.

Well, when I first ordered it, I was skeptical that the product would come in as fast as it did (especially because I ordered it near Christmas). But it actually came when it was supposed to. I was very happy about that part. Kudos and 5 stars for delivery.

I wanted to make sure that all the pieces were in mint or if not very very good condition because I dont want to give a collectors edition to my girlfriend without collectors quality. All the parts were there which was good. The money was air tight, all the other pieces and properties etc were individually inside plastic. When I took the board out however.... I found that there was, where the board folded, two indents where the paper was not completely smooth or touching the board itself. I know thats very "nit-picky" but you would expect a collectors edition of anything to be so pristine, that one would damage it just by looking at it. I know its not going to be played with but because it will be displayed, I would want it to be perfect next to her lord of the rings collectors edition monopoly set. That is why I give this product 4 stars and not 5 like I was hoping.

I got this game for my son for christmas, but he saw it on the internet and was going to buy it himself, so he ended up getting early. Immediately opened game and started playing, A big hit.
