If you don't own a monopoly set this is the one to buy.
If you do own a modern monopoly set, send it down the charity shop and buy this one.
The houses and hotels are wooden, not squidgy plastic. The playing pieces are comfortingly heavy. The box is made of wood and the cards are made of card that is robust enough to actually withstand more than two games.
It's really lovely to play. I'm not old enough to remember the 1930's but the lack of cheap flimsy plastic and bits that fall apart after 10 minutes took me back to my childhood. It just feels good.

Presented in a durable wooden storage box, this is much closer in feel and styling to the vintage set of Monopoly that my brothers and I grew up playing at my grandparents' house. Gone are the flimsy, hollow, plastic hotels and houses that populate the standard version of the game, replaced with solid little wooden buildings. The playing pieces are nicely made and feel good to use.

However, despite the vintage theme to the design, the game has succumbed to modern trends in terms of property sizing. The cards and money are rather small - maybe two thirds the size of the regular edition ones - and can be quite fiddly. The playing board has also been cut down compared to a genuine vintage version in that it folds into quarters rather than in half, presumably to save on costs for the storage box.

My girlfriend mentioned she enjoyed a game of Monopoly, I'd not played in years but always remembered it been quite fun with the family on a wet weekend.

As a surprise I decided to order a set and challenge her to a romantic Friday night game (oh what an exiting life we have!) At first I was settled on the standard classic monopoly which comes in a cardboard box - I imagine it would have a limited durability.

Just as I was hovering my cursor over "Add to Basket" I noticed this little beauty - it looked lovely from the pictures and so I decided to go mad and splash out a few extra quid for the "posh" set.

The wooden box is indeed very nice, with a great retro feel to it (which is what you might expect from something called the "Nostalgia Edition"!) and is very solid and well made - inside there are various compartments for tokens, cards and money etc to be packed away - as well as grooves to place money and title deeds in order, for the ease of use of the banker, during a game.

The game board is very study, well detailed and folds away neatly in the box.

The houses and hotels are made of nicely textured wood as opposed to cheap plastic and the tokens are made of solid metal which has a very good quality feel to it.

The monopoly money - well that's just monopoly money! Nothing much seems to have changed.

I'd originally ordered the basic version of Monopoly, having been bamboozled by the baffling number of editions of this popular game. The order was delayed as it was out of stock. But as I saw the link again, I clocked sight of this "Nostalgia Edition", and decided to change my order.

I could not have made a more wise decision. This is THE version of Monopoly to get. Too often you will see people drag out a battered and beaten more commonly-seen variant of this game, but this edition demands more respect. The box itself is well-crafted with butterfly-jointed corners and a nice sliding lid. The board is a 2-fold split kind, making the box about half the size of the normal game box. The individual player pieces are nice to handle and look at, and the cards have got a pleasingly authentic feel to them.

The box is out on display on a side-table and always gets attracting glances from guests.

Don't buy the common version! Spend an extra £tenner.

The first review here is spot on. This is the only version of Monopoly to buy. It's solid, made of wood, and will last forever.

Like most board games, the original versions manufactured are the best, and it's great to see a version of a board game made to the original standards....Not a plastic bit in sight! Worth the extra 5-10 squid.

I wanted a set to introduce my young (7 year old) son to the joys of Monopoly, and was about to buy a regular new set when I saw this on Amazon. I wanted a set with £ sterling and a 'traditional' look (like the sets I used in the 70's) and this fits the bill perfectly.

The wooden box is well made and great for keeping the money and cards in (it has handy grooves to allow the 'bank' to stack the money ready to use). The play board itself seems to be a good size (some other review had said it was smaller than normal - but without another to compare against, it seems fine to me - and is certainly perfectly playable.

The metal pieces are as I remember them and the whole experience is of a well made product. Yes, the money might be on slightly heavier grade paper, but that's about the only complaint I can think of.

To date, 2 games played - both of which were great fun and reminded me what a classic this is - and of course the younger generation needed little time to pick it up and show he's just as adept at putting Hotels on Park Lane, as he is playing a game on the Xbox. He won both games soundly, leaving his parents in need of a loan!

Despite that - a good game and purchase - Money well spent - recommended :-)
