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.
