Monopoly City Board Game

Monopoly City

Monopoly CityMonopoly City is a metropolitan edition of the classic Monopoly board game. The idea is basically the same as the original game also, develop and watch the city grow. You just will not build houses and hotels though; you will build industrial complexes, skyscrapers, stadiums and schools. The choices are up to you but you do not want a rival developer to build something undesirable next to something of yours that makes its value fall.

The playing pieces are still shiny but they are all new shapes. There are still plastic buildings also in two different colours but in the Monopoly City version of the game, they are divided into residential and commercial properties. The board itself still has sets of properties but they too have all been renamed. Game play is very much like the original edition of the game. Roll the dice and move your piece. You can buy properties you land on and sell off those you do not buy. One big difference is that you do not need to own a whole set of property to build on it. You don’t build house and hotels any more but blocks. Property development is actually easier in this game than the original game. Luck also plays a larger role in the game.

The board game is for 2 to 6 players and has 80 3-D buildings so you can develop your Monopoly city. It also requires two “AAA” batteries that are not included. The game comes in a choice of a classic card board box or a shaped metal tin.
