For fun, this is a stop motion of our game of Monopoly. I took a picture after every move and Jen beat me in about an hour.
It was a bloodbath. Jen (the train) started strong with some railroad and utility purchases. Mike (the race car) got bogged down early on with a long string of bad rolls leading to only three properties owned. Jen quickly snapped up the second utility, Park Place, and all four Railroads. Mike collected all the Greens, and began building houses, but was wiped out by the Railroads. When Jen finally bought the last property left, Boardwalk, it was all over. The hotels built were never used. It was the Electric Company that dealt the fatal blow and left Mike’s car piece in a wreck.
This deluxe Monopoly has old fashioned wooden houses and hotels, metal markers, organizers for all the cards and money, and proper storage for everything while boxed. For a neat and tidy traditional game of Monopoly (or with whatever traditional rules you play with), this is our go-to version.
