Monopoly Electronic Banking

Monopoly Electronic Banking Edition

Those who love the classic Monopoly board game need not fret about the new Monopoly with electronic banking. The new version keeps all the best elements of the classic and combines them with an updated form of money exchange. The new money system, though it might appear intimidating, is actually easy to learn. Even young players should not have a problem operating the new banking calculator.

In this game, the finances change hands using debit cards and a special calculator. Each debit card displays the amount of money the player has in an account. The rules of the game are the same as the classic board game. The game, though no physical money is physically exchanged, can still be educational. Children can still learn about strategy, accumulating money, and buying and selling property. Each player will start with 15 million on their debit card. Money is still added to the account when players pass go and players still pay rent when they land on an opponent’s property. Instead of learning about counting money, players will learn about bookkeeping and how to track debits and credits.

Other major differences are the names and prices of some of the properties and the tokens. Some of the new tokens include a Segway, space shuttle, and dog in a purse. The railroads have become airports and the utilities are no longer electricity and water – they are internet and mobile phones. Some of the community chest and chance cards have been updated to reflect current technology. For example, you might have to spend money to fix your computer. The updates allow younger players to relate to the game in ways previous generations have not, though one could argue that a certain nostalgia is lost.

Monopoly Here and Now Electronic Banking comes with the game board, banking calculator, title deed cards, community chest and chance cards, six debit cards, six player tokens, two dice, 32 homes and twelve hotels. In order to use the banking system, the players will need to provide 2 AAA batteries. The game is designed to be fun for ages 8 and up. Just as with the classic version, be prepared to spend hours playing this game.
