This edition adds a few minor changes that completely change the stategy for winning, while keeping the heart of the game the same. If you enjoy board games, this one is a MUST have!
My family and friends play it regularly.
Its not perfect. We had to make changes to a few rules to keep the game challenging and fair.
The bus ticket concept is great but it wasn't fully developed. Playing with the official rules regarding the "Bus ticket" was just to powerful and cheap. Games were won quickly and it made the game lopsided too often. We decided to nerf its usage.
The auction added great poker play to the game as long as property was still available. The rules surrounding the auction space when no properties were left to auction off was also under developed. That rule had to modified.
The speed dice can be great when you ignore the added bus and monopoly man rule.
We also felt that more community chess and chance cards should have been developed and added to the game to support all the new additions.
The extra properties added to the game are great along with skyscrapers and depots.
They could have added additional tokens also but nitpicking.
After our adjustments were made we feel that we can never go back to playing the standard monopoly game.
I like the strategy involved, and I like the ability to be able to put houses on when a full monopoly isn't owned (most monopolies now require the purchase of four, not three, properties. Houses can be put on if only 3 are owned).
It's not a short game, and true MLs might like it just for variety's sake. My kids (6 of 'em ranging from 13-30) aren't in agreement about whether they like the Bus cards, but the cards definitely add a new strategy to the game. The Mr. Monopoly (or is it Moneybags? I can't remember) also make the game move faster.
I've decided I like it as a change once in a while. The basic rules are the same, so there isn't a huge difference. If you want to play without the bus or Mr. Monopoly/Moneybags cards, you can--so it's not something which has to be done.
If you like Monopoly a lot, I'd give this one a fair chance. Don't just do what I did--look at the "new" rules and walk away. (I let my kids figure it out.) Play a few games of it. It's NOT complicated--I made it seem that way in my brain. It's fun with a slight twist.
The only reason I didn't give it straight "five star" ratings is that the game would have to be "perfect" and I haven't found the perfect game yet. It is definitely educational because when played correctly, it involves a lot of thinking and planning.Read more ›
