Monopoly is one of those games that i think most people have stashed somewhere at home.  There has been so many fun versions of the game over the years and this new release "Monopoly Gamer" is no exception. My nine year old thinks its definitely the best ever.  

Monopoly Gamer is a fun combination of Nintendo and Hasbro, there are elements of the traditional screen games of Nintendo and elements of the traditional Monopoly and yet the game itself is pretty unique.  Honestly, it took us a couple of rounds to work out how it all works and to remember what each player, card and dice does (I 'spose its like learning any new game).  Its good fun, lots of ways for your tokens to come and go and if you're lucky it can be a landslide of a win.

We love the "Boss Fight" battles (in replace of community chest and chance) and love the extra die power ups and the Super Star abilities.  The game comes with four Super Mario characters as your player pieces such as Mario, Princess Peach, Yoshi and my favourite Donkey Kong.  You can buy other Super Mario characters with their super powers separately and for rrp of $5.99 will make excellent little stocking stuffers for my kids this Christmas.

Designed for 8+ years i think depends on your child my five year old now understands the play and enjoys the game although the option of only one princess is a little disappointing for her.  I think its a fun game that would entertain a range of ages and is a lot more interactive and faster than a regular Monopoly game.

If you're looking for a new board game or a way to get some screen time players off the screens for a bit then this could be for you.  Its in leading retailers now and so are the extra player characters.  One to pop on the Christmas Lists for Santa.
