I love board games, there is nothing more fun on a summer night in than playing a good old board game, for me it evokes memories of my childhood and teen years up North. Love it!
Monopoly is one of the great classic games and it is now timeless because of this constant evolution which makes it accessible to even more audiences. Obviously, this versio is for the Minion and Despicable Me fans. And it’s really cute! And fun.
NonDad and I gave it a play the other night and even us, two adults (and there are days I use that term loosely), had a great time with it. This one is targeted towards the younger age group, but it’s still Monopoly, but on a level that’s a little easier for them to understand and enjoy.
As you can see in the pic the board is a little different, it actually assembles with the box, and to add some fun and whimsy to it, the properties reflect the movie and characters. Even the chance cards are based on the movie, it’s all very cute and fun.
Even using the Minions as your playing pieces is fun (I of course chose Tutu Stuart) and instead of a die, you spin a Minion on essentially a top and what number he lands on, you move that number of places. Even the board assembles with the box, it’s cute. It’s easy for the kids and still fun for the grown-ups too.
Overall, well done on blending Monopoly with Minions and staying true to the game. It’s fun for kids and adults! Check it out for a fun night in
