This review is from: Doctor Who Monopoly 50th Anniversary edition (Toy)
I bought this as a gift for my partner who is a big Doctor Who fan, and I felt embarrassed once we started playing. Were the playing pieces a TARDIS, a Dalek, a Cyberman...? No. Were the houses little colony ships ? No. Did the money even have pictures of different Doctors on them? No. Do we have a time scoop or E-space instead of jail? Hell no. How about a "psychic paper" instead of a "get out of jail free" card? No? Okay...
The way the designers have substituted places on the board, "chance" cards and such is bafflingly random, and in many cases they haven't bothered to change them at all. The whole thing feels like it was thrown together in a few hours by someone who skim-read the Doctor Who page on Wikipedia.
After the semi-decent Star Wars Monopoly set, this is a massive disappointment for Doctor Who fans. It would be more fun to play classic Monopoly and use your imagination; at least you wouldn't have to keep reminding yourselves which episode corresponds to which property.
