Choose Your Path
If you land on an "Action" space, pick an Action card and get ready for some unexpected excitement. You might get to brag about a book you just wrote and collect 40,000 dollars from the bank. On the other hand, you could be sailing around the world and have to pay the bank a whopping 50,000 dollars. Landing on a 'House' space will have you deciding whether to buy, sell, or do nothing. Maybe you'll be lucky enough to land on a 'Payday' space and collect a salary. You might think you're making the right decisions, but spend your money wisely on your life's path or it could become your road to ruin.

What is this teaching children? In my opinion, the game should have gone in the opposite direction. There used to be spaces immediately after paydays where you had to pay taxes; they shouldn't have been removed. You should also have the option of putting a percentage of your paycheck towards your retirement when you get paid and invest it to have a higher amount of money when you retire at the end of the game.
Everyone knows that Life isn't fair, however, this game teaches kids that Life is fair and that's not a good thing.
My first impression out of the box was that the pieces are far too small and flimsy to the point where the tokens are all but impossible to pick up. When one of us landed on a space that had all the players inserting their token in the spin wheel, we lost the tokens. They got wedged in under parts of the spin wheel and the only way to get them out would be to destroy the spin wheel, which is not an option at all.
In my family, everyone goes to college. As a result, no players ever chose to go the “Career Path” option because we are all programmed toward taking the college path. So, right off the bat, everyone playing is on the same path.
The game instructions are ambiguous all the way through. My first stump came a couple of spins in when a player landed on a “Payday” space. No one could agree on what salary players collect as they move through the game.
Overall the game was laborious all the way through. It missed right out of the chute by telling you almost nothing about how to play after the initial setup. When you get to #3 and it says, “That’s it! That’s all you need to know, so get going. Look up the spaces as you land on them.” Well, someone landed on SOMETHING with every spin, requiring the game to stop and the banker had to read, then field questions from the players because of the ambiguous and all-too-brief instructions.
Laborious, convoluted, and endlessly boring. After an hour of that we all agreed to call it quits and drag out our 50-year-old Monopoly game. Oh, so much more fun. And guess what, the pieces are sturdy, the money in denominations the children can learn from and life lessons hidden around each and every throw of the di.
So folks, take my advice and don’t throw away your money. The old standards are still with us for a reason.
P.S. The first time I taught my 7-yr-old granddaughter to play Monopoly, she mastered how to count “real” money after about an hour. She could figure out how to pay for a property, whether she could afford to buy one and to make change when an opponent had to pay her rent with a larger bill. By the second time we played, she had caught on to the strategy of blocking opponents from attaining a monopoly on a block of properties, and how to leverage her portfolio for higher earnings. Those are valuable life lessons that will serve her well for the remainder of her life.
