We have several versions of Monopoly, so we couldn't wait to get this one! The money is much simpler to handle - only two different amounts. You have the option of buying the property you land on even if someone else owns it by adding and extra $100 until there are three stacked fish or bone markers on it (instead of houses or hotels). The board is smaller, 8 instead of 10 squares, making it easier to reach around. Our set sent a wrong piece - two fat sleepy cats when one should have been a basketful of four kittens. I have contacted Hasbro about how to replace our piece. Overall, we look forward to playing this with more people and will continue to order more Monopoly games!
