Had been on my wish list since it was released but now I've got it am really pleased. Gone are the days of Monopoly lasting several days, our quickest game was over in just about 20 minutes but most take a fair bit longer and it really is suitable for youngsters as well as adults. Played it last weekend with 10 yr old grandson and it's dead easy to pick up the rules and how to play The basic idea is to buy companies and place the company tiles (which you get instead of a card when you buy the company) on a ladder on the board. First one to fill the ladder with company tiles wins - simple. There are some real sneaky deals to be done using what used to be the chance and community chest cards and even the dice have a 'sneaky swap' side where you can swap one of your companies for an opponents (whether they like it or not). It has gold coloured playing pieces and the money comes in only 3 different denominations. The only down point, and it is a minor one, is that it is only for 4 players however we decided that the one who has the least in the value of their companies is replaced in the next game by any one who is waiting.
