Monopoly is a classic Hasbro family favourite board game which has been around for years in many households. Of course there's the classic Monopoly with the streets and landmarks of London and then they started bringing out more and more versions, now there's one for pretty much all big cities, ones for TV shows and films and even a 'Create your own' Monopoly. Disney Monopoly is one that caught my eye as I am a big, big Disney fan and feel I must have everything Disney, be it films, cuddly toys, mugs and now even board games.
If you're familiar with the concept of Monopoly then Disney Monopoly works in the same way but with its own magic touches. You have the choice of 8 tokens, Peter Pan, Dumbo, Lady and the Tramp, Alice in Wonderland, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, Mowgli and Pinocchio. Players then take it turns to roll the dice and move round the board collecting Magic Moments and Show Time cars which have different instructions on such as ' Fly to go with Peter Pan' and buying properties which in this game are different Disney Movies including favourites such as Lion King, Toy Story and Cinderella. Once a player has a full set of cards of any colour they can start buying properties to build on their lots, in this game the properties are Cottages and Castles as opposed to Houses and Hotels. The game play goes on until all players but one become bankrupt or the quicker and easier way to play it is to set a time limit and see who has the most money at the end of the allotted time.
There are some other little Disney touches which are as follows:
* Instead of just 'Tax' it's Scrooge McDuck's Tax and Prince John's Tax is super Tax
* The four stations are Aladdin's Flying Carpet, Captain Hook's Pirate Ship, Cinderella's Coach and Cruella De Vil's car.
* The two utilities are Magic Wand and Pixie Dust
The Monopoly classics such as Go, Jail and Free Parking remain the same.
The board is beautifully designed and the two dice you receive with the game are glittery which adds to the Disney touch even more.
Although this game might be a bit complicated for younger children they can still enjoy the Disney theme with the silver, 3D tokens and the pictures on the board.
Overall a really good spin on the classic version of Monopoly and really good value for money as you can pick this game up for about £20-£25; it will provide you with hours of great family fun.
I have owned Disney Monopoly for years now and it is my favourite board game to play by far!
It plays pretty much the same as regular monopoly, but with a disney theme. Each player takes it in turns to roll the dice and move about the board, using their money to buy properties and build houses and hotels - or in disney monopoly - cottages and castles. When another player lands on your property they have to pay you rent, you can go to jail, suffer fines and pay taxes etc. The aim is the own as much property and have as much income as possible, and the winner is the last remaining player who hasnt been bankrupted.
The disney version has properties named after the disney films, old and new, from Steamboat willy, to Lady and the tramp to Toy Story. What would have been the stations in the original monopoly have been replaced with Captain Hooks Pirate Ship, Cinderallas Coach etc etc. The Community Chest and Chance cards also have a disney theme, such as flying with peter pan to go, finding dumbo's magic feather and being robbed by gideon and foulfellow. The money is also brightly coloured with Scrooge Mcduck in the centre rather than the monopoly man.
Overall I would definitely recommend this to any monopoly or disney fan. Its a beautifully designed board and really great fun to play, especially around christmas time! You can normally buy it for around £20-£25 depending on where you buy it from, and would probably be able to find it cheaper online.
