We monopolise this
Member Name: katyc
Advantages: A great educational and fun game
Easter Holidays and the weather is very cold so long walks by the river and visits to play parks has had to be revised! My Daughter received Monopoly Junior from Father Christmas but we hadn't played it.
What is it?
Monopoly Junior is of course based on the original game of monopoly but unlike the original this game is a lot faster and ends as soon as the first person runs out of money!
The version we have is based on a fun fair you have to put your ticket booth on a square and then charge admission to anyone landing on the square, it also contains the chance cards as per the original where you either get a free ticket booth or you end up being sent to a particular square.
Cost and stockist
From what I can see Hasbro have changed Monopoly Junior to be based on a party, you can still get this version but new it is £41.00 on Amazon so I would recommend looking in charity shops which is where I got this one for £1.00 I also purchase one from a car boot sale for my godson for 50p.
Both versions of this game are very good we have played the party one and it is very similar and this is available for £7.99 on Amazon www.amazon.co.uk
Well Monopoly is a great game for maths skills but more importantly it is really good fun! I have two children aged 5 and 7 and often what one wants to play is too complicated or not inspiring enough this game we played as a family and all enjoyed indeed yesterday we played it 5 times and nobody was fed up.
I really recommend this it is a great game it is fast enough that interest doesn't get lost; it is good at teaching maths without being too obvious! And although it is aimed at 5-8 year olds Mummy and Daddy enjoyed this very much!
In summary a really good unisex family game one I will be buying for my nephews and nieces.
Summary: a great fun filled way to play monopoly with little ones
