Monopoly Disney Edition
Advantages: great twist to monopoly
Disadvantages: none for me!
Me and my family are all big Disney fans and we also love playing Monopoly in round Christmas time, and so when I seen the Disney Monopoly in BnM Bargains I had to pick it up and bring it home to play it.
I think that everyone is familiar with the concept of Monopoly, it's one of the best and most well known traditional board games of our generation...
But for anyone who has been living under a rock for all their lives here a quick description of the Monopoly game:
Monopoly is a board game where each player takes their turn to roll a pair of dice and move around the board square by square, when you land on a property, you can either buy it or if it is already owned by another player you have to pay them 'rent' landing on it. Each property is a different price and carries a different rent, as you progress around the board properties increase in price and rent, to increase rent of your properties you can put houses and hotels on them. The general aim of the game is to own as many properties as you can so players will have to pay you lots of rent, the game is over when everyone but the overall winner is bankrupt.
This particular edition of Monopoly's properties are all named after popular Disney films both old and new for example, Lady and the Tramp, High School Musical, Hannah Montana, Lion King and Peter Pan.
Also the train stations are named in the Disney fashion, Captain Hook's Ship , Cruella De Vil's Car,
Aladdin's Flying Carpet and Cinderella's Coach.
The community chests and chance cards are also Disney Themed, though are still quite similar to the basic original Monopoly games, an example of what a card would say is:
'Hitch A Ride with Buzz Lightyear, Go to Go, collect £200'.
The Money in this game is colourful and very much the same as the original game, however there are Mickey Mouse heads in place of where Mr. Monopolies face would be.
The play pieces that are in this game are all of course Disney Shaped, there is a Dumbo, Belle, Peter Pan, Mogli and more different kinds of pieces.
I bought this game for £15.00 in BnM Bargains which I think was a great price as similar styled Monopolys are £25 in Debenhams at the moment. You could also buy this online or it may be available in some good toy stores.
We all had lots of fun with this version of Monopoly and I was really glad I bought it, this is a must have for any Disney fans who enjoy playing Monopoly. It was priced reasonably and it is a great family activity to get everyone together, especially at Christmas time. Overall I would give this board game a 5 out of 5.
