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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great new twist 1 Sep 2009
By D. Cole
Durability: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 3.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Fun! 24 Nov 2009
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Traditional Game updated for 21st Century 15 May 2012
Verified Purchase
Durability: 3.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars monopoly city 28 Jan 2011

Durability: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars A new spin on a classic 5 Dec 2009
Durability: 3.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Its essentially the original monopoly we have all grown to love however with a few differences that make the game more fun and makes you think about things more, the new times that comes makes auctions very frantic and fun as you only have 50 seconds which can cause people to make stupid bids on plots. It's a great game to play with family and friends and highly recommend it. I kinda wish it had the electronic bank like the other versions though as in this game alot of money gets passed around in short periods of time but not much of a biggy.

I think it is a great concept, but as a family game i found it overly complicated, too many times we found ourselves having to read the notes which interupted the game over and over again.

As you know, Monopoly is one of those games that you pull out when all the family are around and play together during the holidays but for most of my cousins they found Monopoly City rather tedious trying to get their heads around all the new types of building and the way the rent structure works and just generally learning the new rules, it kind of spoilt our overall enjoyment. I feel they have made this game overlly complicated without just cause, so i recommend you give this one a miss and stick to the original, its much better.
