Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

Monopoly City adds new twists to the classic board game. This board game will teach your kids about what it takes to be the best property developer and the work that goes into building their dream city. With the goal of owning the prestigious Monopoly tower, your kids will be learning important lessons about money while wheeling and dealing their way to the top.

Build on every Go and watch your city fortune grow. In this metropolitan edition of Monopoly, be the top property developer and watch your dream city rise before your eyes. What will you build-- houses or industrial complexes, schools, skyscrapers or stadiums? The choice is yours. But watch out a rival developer could build a sewage plant right next to your prize property and make its value plummet. So build wisely and rake in the rent... and the prestigious Monopolytower could be yours. Includes deal making button.

Monopoly City is exactly like classic Monopoly in lay out, rules, and gameplay-roll the dice, move your character around the board, and try not to spend too much time in jail or go bankrupt. However Monopoly City has also made several neat changes, with newly named properties, new monetary values, futuristic buildings, and new playing cards.

Instead of property deeds, you acquire permits for the zones you'd like to build in, and this latest version also includes an electronic trading unit, making it possible to hold "public" or "private" auctions for your properties and districts.

Monopoly is my all-time favourite board game but even I'll admit after probably playing hundreds of games now it can get a bit 'samey'. I got this not long after it was released and have played it numerous times now.

It's best summed up by saying it's similar to Monopoly but different too. The board is arranged in a similar way and the aim of the game is again to move around the board, collect rent and buy properties and the richest player wins. However, the difference is the way you go about winning (or losing!)

Instead of houses and hotels there are various buildings that can be built, any time on your turn, on any of your properties. You don't have to have all of the colours in a group to build and your buildings now go in the middle of the board (you build a city) and collect increasing values of rent as in Monopoly. Community Chest cards have gone, new Chance cards are in and there is an interesting "rent dodge" card under Free Parking. Stations have been replaced with build a hazard/attraction spaces which stop another player collecting rent/block another player stopping you collecting rent. Electricity Company and Water Works have also gone. I promise you these aren't missed, after the initial "oh, where have they gone?", because of all of the new features. The money has also been revamped, it's not pounds sterling anymore but Monopoly money. It doesn't really make much difference, just more zeros on the end of the notes!

However, the biggest difference for me is that the game forces you to auction properties if you don't buy them on your turn (or you can't afford to buy a property you land on). There are also a few 'auction' spaces on the board.

I'm a lover of the original monopoly and was tossing up whether to get the old classic or try this one out. The household is very very happy with this version! As previous reviewers have mentioned it is a great remake of a classic game. The board and buildings makes playing fun and looks great!

We have played with 2 to 6 players and have found that it is great fun with all number, but you need to change your tactics depending on the number of people playing, which makes it more interesting.

And it is much faster as well, since there is no need to collect all the colours before building, it brings up the pace of the game.

All around I think that this is a great game and would recommend it to anyone who is looking for an upgrade to the normal monopoly.

Monopoly teaches business sense and money management - an education still not found in state schools. The traditional game was great for seventies teenagers (and probably responsible for a whole generation's ability to create wealth through property purchasing). Monopoly City takes potential property ownership to the next level, including the need for an awareness of the impact on property values when town planners introduce non-residential construction into residential areas. If you want your children to understand home and property ownership, get them started early by buying this game, suitable for any child with the numeracy and literacy skills of a 10 year-old. Oh, and my children found it a lot of fun, particularly using all the new possibilities to bankrupt your opponents - such as rendering their residential properties worthless by constructing "black" buildings in districts they own.

I bought this for my 3 nephews for christmas,we played it on boxing day, the rules are a little different from the game i played as a child, but they are an improvement. The rules recommend using the box lid to thow the dice into i think this will reduce the longevity of the box.We all loved it, best of all my 7 year old nephew wrote to me to tell me they had played for 3 hours and he had won. yippie.

If you are unsure of which monopoly game is best to buy, it is this one without any doubt. You do have to fully read the instructions before playing as the game is very different to standard monopoly but the game is fantastic! All the chance cards are different, you can build skyscrapers/monopoly towers/industrial/residential buildings, and you can build without having full sets! I even prefer this game to my previous faveourite of monopoly mega edition.

"Monopoly City is exactly like classic Monopoly in lay out, rules, and gameplay". Erm, no it's not.

Monopoly is a "property trading game" - you almost always need to trade to get sets of a colour - and there's almost no trading in this. You can trade, but there's not much incentive to do so. Instead, it's a building game: you can start building as soon as you get your first property and the only limit is how many pieces the annoying timer / 1-2-3-train device says.

The 'almost' comes from the way that you can build a skyscraper if you have a set and a different - gasp - skyscraper if you have two sets. But as there's little incentive to let someone do that, it will either never happen or some small child will be persuaded to pay way over the odds to someone.

As a one-off game to please a nephew, it was ok, but I'm not about to play it again - the outcome of two hours of play was decided by a single roll.

The other problems include the layers of chrome on top. Land on what were the train stations, and you can build good things on your areas or bad things on other people's. Except if they've built a good thing. Except - possibly - a stadium (it's the same colour as good things, but it's not in the list of good things). But you won't want to build a bad thing if all their property in an area is commercial (more expensive to build, but gets the same rent) rather than residential (cheaper but become worthless if there's a bad thing in the area...) And that's before we get to the new train stations, which are also the same colour as good things, but definitely don't protect against bad things. What they do do is make the game longer, as they allow you to go round the board quicker, collecting £2m a time, and land on safe properties (i.e.
