I have been a big Monopoly fan and have loved the game for years. I have even purchased many of the various spin-offs, such as the Star Wars edition, Simpsons edition which have been great fun. This version however changes the format, changing the traditional money format to a credit card system which I didn't enjoy. The GOOD Points: New properties - as the product name suggests, this version of Monopoly contains many famous cities across the world such as London, New York, Shanghai, Istanbul among others. This helps to add a new feel to the traditional game, getting away from the old property names in London which become tiresome after a ... Read the complete review

I have quite a good collection of Monopolies as well, so when I saw this World themed Monopoly on the internet last year, I just had to add it to my cart and order it to add it to my Monopoly stash. 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 ...

Monopoly is a well known game and many versions have been distributed since the original in 1933. This much loved game is all about properties and money dealing. It is for 2 to 8 player and from ages 8 and upwards. The aim of the game is to get the most properties/money/hotels and houses on properties, if your the last one standing, then you win! To start with, the properties you can buy have changed in this version and starting from the lowest value (the brown properties) to the riches (dark blue/purple properties) and I will name them all now. - ...

I collect Monopoly boards, and 'Monopoly Here and Now: The World Edition' is the latest addition to my collection. I wasn't sure what to expect - In many ways I like the old way of using bank notes as money, and I was at first dubious of the new electronic credit card way of purchasing and selling property (or world cities in this instance). For anyone who doesn't know, monopoly is a property trading board game, for up to 8 players, aged 8 and up. Briefly, as each player progresses around the board, they must try to win the game through buying property and doing deals with fellow players. The person left in at the end of the game (when all other players have ... Read the complete review

Hasbro have rebranded its old Monopoly game for the 21st century, adding in cities from around the world and introducing a new way of wheeler-dealing, using a credit card instead of those old fashioned bank notes... The basic premise of the game remains the same, you travel around the board making purchases of land (cities in this case), and charging those unfortunate players who land on your property rental fees. The idea is that you bankrupt your opponents by making shrewd purchases of land and property, and forcing them to pay you for the privilege of staying there. You can still go to jail, and the old Chance and Community Chest spaces are ... Read the complete review
