3.0 out of 5 stars Simpler but snazzier version of monopoly, 2 Dec. 2013
By 
This review is from: Hotel Tycoon Board Game (Toy)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This game is an update of the 1974 MB game Hotels. Which is basically a simpler but snazzier version of monopoly.

The game contains a number of cardboard and plastic hotels (which can take a while to build and don't 100% fit nicely in the box) and when all these are added to the board the game certainly is spectacular. Build quality is quite high though the tokens are just cheaper plastic planes.

The aim of the game is to build hotels, get people to land on their entrances and make them bankrupt, last person standing the winner. The board is a loop with 3 different squares, buy land squares (where you can buy the hotel land), planning permission squares(where you opt to build build on your land) and build for free squares. What is interesting is that when you buy land people can buy it off you (and you can't stop them) when they land land on an adjacent buy square unless you have built on it. To build on the land there is a special planning permission dice that could allow you build for free but could also cost you double.

To compare to monopoly it definitely is quicker but feels some what less fun. The different rules add some interest but our games didn't feel nearly as cutthroat as a game of monopoly. Probably one for younger children rather than those versed in Settlers of Catan or Ticket To Ride. It does look impressive though; if I had this back in the 80s I probably would have loved it for the buildings alone.
