Monopoly City adds new twists to the classic board game. This board game will teach your kids about what it takes to be the best property developer and the work that goes into building their dream city. With the goal of owning the prestigious Monopoly tower, your kids will be learning important lessons about money while wheeling and dealing their way to the top.
Build on every Go and watch your city fortune grow. In this metropolitan edition of Monopoly, be the top property developer and watch your dream city rise before your eyes. What will you build-- houses or industrial complexes, schools, skyscrapers or stadiums? The choice is yours. But watch out a rival developer could build a sewage plant right next to your prize property and make its value plummet. So build wisely and rake in the rent... and the prestigious Monopolytower could be yours. Includes deal making button.
Monopoly City is exactly like classic Monopoly in lay out, rules, and gameplay-roll the dice, move your character around the board, and try not to spend too much time in jail or go bankrupt. However Monopoly City has also made several neat changes, with newly named properties, new monetary values, futuristic buildings, and new playing cards.
Instead of property deeds, you acquire permits for the zones you'd like to build in, and this latest version also includes an electronic trading unit, making it possible to hold "public" or "private" auctions for your properties and districts.

It has advantages over the original game such as you can build on properties even where you only own one of a set, and auctions are forced when a player lands on a square that is available, so the game moves with some speed initially. However it IS more complicated, and I had to refer to the rules quite frequently, Having said that, who doesn't with a new game? Familiarity with the original Monopoly board game does not mean you can just sit down and play this assuming all the same rules apply. They don't. It pays to study the rules initially as you can gain advantages if you understand what pieces count.
One thing I did not like was that the skyscrapers sticking up all over the board make it very difficult to throw the dice, and children often do so energetically, demolishing and displacing buildings in the process. This is owing to the board layout where properties almost entirely cover the centre of board, which remains largely clear in the original game save for the two sets of cards. With all the paraphernalia of money and deeds surrounding the board on all sides, it is very difficult to be able to throw the dice in a clear area! A major disadvantage.
On the whole an intriguing take on the original game, and probably more attractive to Monopoly enthusiasts who want to try something a little different. As with all board games, you probably need to play it several times before you really know what you are doing and can play it with ease.
