PLAYING THE GAME. The deck of cards has a full set of individual properties that you can trade or discard after the initial deal. Although you don't roll dice, you can obtain additional cards and properties by drawing new cards as part of your turn -- or you can pick up the discards from your oppononents. There is no concept of 'rent', but the special cards (chance cards, the house/hotel cards, and the 'token' cards) allow you to accumulate the points that you need to accelerate your earnings to the $10,000 winning hand.
There is strategy involved with the game -- particularly around the deciaion of when you want to lay down your cards and managing the discard strategy. This makes it a reasonable thinking/educational game. We've played a few times as a complete family and have found that our 8 1/2 year old can generally think through the consequences well enough to be reasonable successful any given hand. I would question whether this is appropriate for any kids younger than that even though this is rated as being appropriate for 7 and up.
If you've played Monopoly, you'll really enjoy the portability, fast pace, and true-to-life Monopoly fun of this card game. - A Fan -
The Monopoly themed rummy type game did not work well in a five player session, I don't recommend it for that. I can also see how a 2 player version would be quite boring, but 3-4 and you've got a game worth playing.
Players must discard (in front of them) one card per turn. These are done in order. On a turn, a player must draw a card from the deck, or trade cards to get one of the cards in front of another player. If a player wants the bottom discard of a three card discard pile, he must give the other player three cards.
When a player has collected monopolies and bonus cards as sets, he can then "go out."
We also did not use the provided money, but rather just kept score. However, I can see how kids would prefer to have the play money in front of them to keep track of the score.
