I have not opened the box yet . This is a gift for my daughters birthday. On the outside of the box it shows pieces related to cats that look like they are made out of metal just like the original monopoly game I grew up with. So if they are not I would be very disappointed like some of the other reviews. But the box looks great and I think it'll be fun to play . It really looks like a quality game board . If it is not I will for sure update my review of this product.
