Product Description

Product Description

Make millions with a swipe of your card! Wheel and deal your way to a fortune even faster using bank cards instead of cash. All it takes is a card swipe for money to change hands. Now you can collect, rent, buy properties and pay fines - all with the touch of a button! It's a new way to play the family classic that's been brought up-to-date with higher property values and locations based on your favourite London landmarks!

Product Description

In a valiant effort to maintain a sense of relevance in a world where billions are traded every hour and the socio-economic map of London is redrawn with each passing decade, there's a flash new kid in town. The clever chaps behind the legendary and oh-so-British board game Monopoly have given it an electronic spit-and-polish and propelled it kicking and screaming into the 21st Century. And hurrah and huzzah say all of us. Now, in the brash new version of Monopoly, a world of cashless transactions awaits, complete with splendid VISA branding. Rather than accumulating a fetching mound of cash, a completely computerised Chip & Pin Centre does all the banking, enabling competitors to make credits and debits to fund their spree across London. The capital, too, has had a makeover and alongside the familiar names of old money there are new entries in the geographical stakes. The new, flash, loadsamoney Monopoly is dangerously addictive, especially for a generation grown 'expert' on Property Ladder and Location, Location. Now, there are tens of millions to be made, but some faithful old rules apply. Don't imagine for a second that your grandmother is as sweet and grey haired as she seems. And do not, whatever you do, pass go.

Having not played a board game with my family in years, I thought this new electronic Monopoly edition would be a fun way of reliving old family memories of this classic game. A variant of last years 70th anniversary "Here and Now" edition, Monopoly "Electronic Banking" takes another leap into the present day by scrapping the cash element of the game altogether and replacing it with pretend credit cards and an electronic cash console developed especially for this game by Visa.

On first play, the results of this update appear to be a timely reminder of modern life: it is now more difficult to keep track of how much money you are actually spending since your credit is kept in check solely electronically, you can no longer see exactly how much cash you have in front of you compared to your opponent. In this game I found I was more willing to splash out on the more expensive properties and hotels purely because there was less physical evidence of my funds.

While this update is a mostly fun (or frightning??) reminder of modern living, my family found the old fun of sitting with wades of £100 and £500 notes while your opponents were slowly going bankrupt was mostly gone and it was often harder to keep track of who was actually winning at any given time. That said, the credit cards and electronic console are very well made and can easily handle transactions between two players, transferring cash between cards instantly.

Also, it appears that the game makers have opted to display a more suburban/residential London on the board this time round.

As a keen Monopoly enthusiast I jumped at the opportunity to get my hands on this electronic banking edition. The board is the same as the "Here and Now" edition so you can say goodbye to "Old Kent Road" and say hello to "Portobello Road Market".

Firstly, the electronic banking system is practical but not all that satisfying to play with. You get 6 bank cards and a palm-sized device that allows you to transfer money between two cards, add or subtract money from a card. The cards undoubtedly speed up the game but there is no longer that sense of satisfaction when you are collecting wads of cash whilst opponents money reserves dwindle. Also every time you press a button on the device it produces an aggravating bleeping noise. Additionally if you play the "Free Parking" rule you have to have a separate card to put the Free Parking money on.

Otherwise, this is just a standard Monopoly edition with all the same rules applying. Maybe this is just me being old fashioned but I miss the feeling of crisp banknotes at my fingertips and so have since reverted back to my standard "Here and Now" edition. I would recommend this product if you are looking for a quicker and cleaner game but if you are a traditionalist like myself then this edition isn't for you.

We bought this game,as a family game for christmas, but christmas came early, too many cold and wet afternoons!!! We have played this game again and again, we really haven't missed all the sorting of money etc.The only downside to this game is, that if your family get impatient when playing, you really do need a seperate banker! It is quite educational, even though it uses credit cards and a calculator/card machine, it still teaches the basics of money ie; if you haven't got it, don't spend it! It really is a great version of the classic, with a modern twist. Also with the box we had you had a chance to win £1000!!

I thought that with the so many different Monopoly's out recently, this one would slip by unnoticed.
But I was really wrong!

This is a great version, in my eyes by far the best. It uses credit cards which keep track of the money you own, and includes a credit machine which you use to add or subtract money from your accounts. Children will love to tap in the controls on the credit card machine, it looks quite like a PIN machine.

Also, inflation has finally caught up with Monopoly, with the whole value of money changing. Ownership of the exclusive Kensington Palace Gardens (previously Mayfair) will set you back a cool 2million pounds.

A great improvement on the old version, there are no negatives about it!

I have a confession to make...

...I am a cheater. I can't help it! I always cheat at Monopoly. I'll pick up a chance card wanting me to pay fees on all hotels and houses (costing thousands!), and I'll say "Aw no! I've got to pay £[...] for a Drunk in Charge fee!"

I'd also take unauthorised "loans" from the banker.

I can't help it - I love Monopoly and the game makes me so competitive that I'll go to any lengths to win, the irony being, I rarely do!

This version of the game is fantastic. At first I missed the paper cash, but once the game develops and almost every move results in paying a fine to someone, you realise the credit cards are a lot easier.

You don't have to change a £[...] for 3 100's, 2 50's, 5 10's, and 19 5's and 5 1's - it's all there on your card!

One of the first things you'll want to do is turn the volume down on the handheld card machine!

My only niggle is that I am so used to the original titles of the spaces and streets that it feels slightly alien - you soon get used to it though.

This is a great enhancement to a classic game. I still have the old version for posterity, but this is my version of choice now.

And yes, in case you were wondering, as long as you're quick and not too obvious - you can cheat with the card machine! It's so easy to miss a "0" off when you offer to transfer the money you owe someone for landing on their fine collection of property.
