The classic buying, selling, building games is completely under your control! Choose how long you want to play and then build the track to match. For shorter games, set up the Starter track and for longer-lasting fun, choose the classic track. Or get creative! Change the order of your tiles and the shape of your track to create a totally unique freestyle game adventure. The awesome, high-stakes real estate action fun is the same, but the tracks you play it on can always be different.

“Monopoly” has a reputation of being pretty long-winded in that games never seem to end. Not the case with “U-Build Monopoly”, I’m happy to report. The starter track, while ignoring some of the rules/components listed above, can be played in about a half-hour. The industrial buildings and Monopoly tower, for example, are only used in the classic and pro tracks. By that same token, players are free to customize the board’s layout and include whatever buildings they want so as long as they understand that the game might be slightly unbalanced should they deviate too far from the norm.
The components themselves aren’t all that great as far as quality is concerned and the instruction manual is a bit “off” in a few places. For example, page 17 doesn’t list the stadium as a building you’ll need for the classic track, yet page 9 states that the stadium is used in classic and pro tracks. The rules can be a bit overwhelming to first time players, so I recommend starting with the starter track AND not worrying so much about getting the rules right. It’s not the end of the world if you miss something…after all, games exist to provide a form of entertainment. What’s important is that you and your group have fun…if that means house-ruling something that isn’t clear or doesn’t make sense, so be it. Be creative!
Overall, “U-Build Monopoly” is a fairly good value for its $5-10 price tag. The ability to customize your own tracks certainly adds to the replayability factor…the more you’re willing to think outside the box, the more you’ll get out of this product. I wouldn’t have minded paying a few extra bucks so that the components could be of better quality, but they succeed at what they are designed to do. While there are plenty “Monopoly” variants of better quality out on the market, this one will provide you and your family/friends with something slightly different to play…great for when you’re tired of playing the same old rules over and over again. For example, I like the fact that the game minimizes the luck factor a bit in that hazards (and bonus buildings) can be used strategically. That’s something you can’t do in plain old “Monopoly”. What’s better, the game (compared to standard “Monopoly”) actually ends at some point!
In the end, “Monopoly U-Build” is filled with some great ideas, but falls short in the implementation due to subpar component quality. Even some of the bags that initially hold the components are not resealable, which is a poor design choice considering that the box barely has an insert. Make sure to have extra baggies handy for the smaller pieces. Then again, the game is only $5-10…had it been any higher, the review score would have plummeted accordingly.
