Review: Monopoly Empire

Last weekend hubby and I finally got a night where we were both in the same place at that same time (it’s been a crazy fall), and we had been dying to crack open the box for the new Monopoly Empire game, so we did.

We are big Monopoly fans, we even spent about a day and a half just playing Monopoly’s version for the Wii a couple of Christmases ago, it was perfection.

This is a new version, but it doesn’t lose any of the feel of the original, in fact, we were both really impressed.

The object of the game isn’t to bankrupt your opponents this time, it’s to fill your tower to the top first! We of course modified the rules so that we put our property/brand money in the middle and it went to free parking (hubby won it).  Instead of properties, you buy brands, which we really thought was cool, and even the game pieces were based upon that. I was the Coke bottle, hubby was the Chevy Corvette.

The game has nice twists and turns that definitely keep you on your toes, but things like jail and money for passing go (which this time the amount is determined by how far up your tower you are with brands) remain.

We played just the two of us and enjoyed the pace, but with a full contingent, we could easily see this being a fun night with friends.

A great potential present for the aspiring business mogul in your family or circle, we REALLY REALLY enjoyed it.

*Note I did receive the game in order to review it, but all opinions are mine and Nondad’s*
