Monopoly Millionaire is similar to Monopoly in a lot of ways - you move pieces around the board, buy property, collect rent, etc. However Monopoly Millionaire adds some new game elements that make the game a little more strategic and a little more fun. If you land on a property it must either be bought (by you) or go up for auction. Whenever a property goes up for auction, some bidding strategy can come into play - you can bid up the price, you can get a property for cheap, etc. Also, every property has a Fortune card at the beginning. Fortune cards throw in such curveballs as being able to steal another player's property, get a free house, and other twists and turns.
The goal of Monopoly Millionaire is to get to a million dollars first. I like that there's a set goal (so that the game doesn't last forever) and it definitely alters game play strategy. I found myself planning a property take-over and house expansion based on my Fortune cards. Another player would bid up the price of a property for auction "just because."
Overall, I really had a lot of fun playing Monopoly Millionaire. I think the new features give it a bit more "suspense" and a little more player interaction. I thought the changes were enough to make the game more interesting but not so much that I forgot this was a game of Monopoly.
I received a sample of this product to facilitate my review, but my opinions are entirely my own.
