4.0 out of 5 stars Monopoly with a twist!, July 18, 2007
This review is from: Monopoly Tropical Tycoon Game (Toy)
My husband and I loved this game!! Besides the love of the tropical theme, it has different features that the original is missing. The biggest change is that it now uses a DVD instead of chance/community chest cards. All the properties are names of beaches, railroads are beach transportations, and utilites are solar power and wind power. The new tokens are the parrot, beach hat, scooter, cannon, flip flop, and sail boat. But enough about the pieces, lets talk game play.

The first thing you do is roll and the DVD will tell you which "job" you have (mayor, artist, surfer, developer, police chief)- each has their own bonus. Then you roll like you would normally- but if you look at one of the dies there is a TV picture on it. That means you choose the News Update on the DVD and stuff happen. There was a lot of decisions that the DVD asked of you that can effect the current player or somebody else. The game is much quicker due to some new rules (ie landing on Free Parking you can pick any unowned property and purchase it) and you can choose to develop tourist attractions(casino, pier,etc) instead of beach houses/resorts. These tourist properties can bring in some bucks too!

The bad news: The first kinda downer is that it is 3-5 players (which is hard on a couple like to play games together). Pieces looked a little cheap (plastic houses/hotels/piers etc and cardboard fortune pieces) hopefully they will last. Money tray still doesnt hold all the money options- not a big deal, just annoying. Some of the news update stuff is a little silly, but cute.

I felt like this was a fresh breath of air to a game that can feel pretty tedious after awhile. I would recommend to anyone who enjoys monopoly!
