No flimsy card or plastic here,

This review is from: Monopoly Nostalgia Wooden Edition (Toy)
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.

have to agree, we were in a nice pub in beenham near Reading/Newbury and saw this. I though it was a genuine old one as the quality was superb, not like they usually make stuff now. Its alos very compact. Brought back memories. Kids played it and loved it in the pub, so we bought one. Hopefully itll keep them from the computer and console so they can learn something else.

Not flimsy? They are tiny.
