Product Description

Now players can experience the most current version of Monopoly with an electronic banking unit instead of cash. A truly fun experience which utilizes today's trend of a cashless society.

The Monopoly Electronic Banking Edition game combines the best of classic Monopoly with updated electronic transactions. As with the original version, players still operate with money, learn real-world economics, competition and strategy, try to stay out of jail, and try their best to get filthy rich. But this version has been updated to reflect changes in how the real world uses money: All transactions are conducted with Monopoly's new banking card system. Anyone from age 8 and up will enjoy this updated version of one of the world's most famous games. Uses two "AAA" batteries, not included.

Includes gameboard, electronic banker unit, title deed cards, chance and community chest cards, 6 debit cards, 2 dice, 6 modern tokens - Segway Personal Transporter, Baseball Cap, Altoids Tin, Space Shuttle, Flat-Screen TV and Dog in Handbag, 32 houses, 12 hotels and instructions. Anyone from age 8 and up will enjoy this updated version of one of the world's most famous games. Uses two "AAA" batteries, not included.

Finally! Monopoly setup and cleanup made simple! 14 Sep 2007
By R. Ruinsky - Published on Amazon.com
Durability:    Educational:    Fun:   
While this might at first appear like a gimic, Monopoly with electronic banking makes, setup, cleanup and playing so much easier.
No money to count out. Transactions are done through the well thought out banking calculator.
It's also a nice touch that the money has been increased to thousands and millions to account for inflation.
This might not be the choice for Monopoly purists, but it's a lot of fun.
The only pet peeve of mine is the board that is "split" to fold smaller. These are now used in most Monopoly sets and they just don't hold up as well as the traditional folding board and the split is an annoyance when playing.
Still this is a great Monopoly set.

Great, but still takes a while 24 Oct 2007
By Melodie Lighthall - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase Durability:    Educational:    Fun:   
This is great since you don't need to have all the money everywhere, but it still takes time to enter in all the payments, etc. Now to be fair, there are only three of us playing at a time and this may make a difference. If there were many people playing, or even a person just being the banker and not playing, it would be better. You are still waiting to have the banker enter in the values and such, so the play time is still slowed down.

There is no real money-counting educational value to the toy since it's just like using an ATM machine, more or less. You do have to do some math when deciding whether to buy a property or upgrade to more houses or hotels.

The real (and only) plus to this game is that you don't have the money all over the place and you don't have to count it out in the beginning or put it away at the end of the game. This was all I expected when I bought the game so we're perfectly happy with it and enjoy more room on the table. Worth the money? Absolutely! :)

So much fun!!!! 9 Nov 2007

Durability:    Educational:    Fun:   
We are all long time Monopoly players and had so much fun with this modern version. My only two suggestions for playing this game are to have someone only be the banker (because you will be busy) and get ready to have lots of fun and laughs.

Inflation finally comes to Monopoly-land, but with a few glitches 29 Dec 2007
By Wesley Mullins - Published on Amazon.com
Durability:    Educational:    Fun:   
Monopoly gets a facelift in this new version of the classic game: railroads are now airports, utilities are now web providers and the property titles have been changed to places like Waikiki Beach and Hollywood (although the color schemes and ranking system stay the same) . Rather than dealing with small denominations, players now toss around millions of dollars, as everything seems to in denominations 1,000 times greater than the original game. A fan of the classic game will find these new innovations interesting, as seeing how the

The only problems I had with the game resulted from the new electronic banking system. The biggest flaw is that everyone's debit card looks the same. When one player lands on a "collect X from each player" card and the banker gets handed 6 cards, it's very easy to get them mixed up. When my family played, we had to stop twice, back up and do an audit to correct errors my sister made controlling the banking system. The e-cash also kills the Free Parking Rule, where players put taxes and fines in the middle until someone lands on Free Parking and collects it. We adapted by giving the player who lands on Free Parking the same amount of cash as passing Go, but something is lost by not getting to see the pot in the middle grow.

Slightly Dissapointed... 14 Dec 2007
By E. Davis - Published on Amazon.com
Durability:    Educational:    Fun:   
I was so excited when I first saw this toy advertised! My husband and I have a small collection of Monopoly games, so thius seemed like the perfect gift this Christmas. We opened before Christmas though- we just couldnt wait! I really liked that the game was so much less messy without all the paper money. The problem I had with it was that my husband, the banker, always knew how much money I had, and I felt a loit less in control of my money. We ended up passing the "credit card machine" back and forth and that helped a little. It was just not as interactive without the paper money and the game got boring really fast. Maybe we will try it out again and change our minds, but for now it will sit in the game closet with the rest of the monopoly games.
