Reviews

  1. Our family loves monopoly for family games nights, and we're proud owners of various editions, and this has fast become one of our favourites, the aims are different, so it seems like less of a themed version of the usual game and more of a new game! Be warned, things can get loud in this game!

    The aim is to cheat and get away with it without being caught, and several rule changes have occurred in this edition. It's much shorter than the original game as the aim is for all the properties on the board to be owned and the game finishes there with the winner being the player with the most money/assets. If you don't have all night to play, this is probably the better option for you. The chance cards and community chests have a number of twists now and there's fewer properties to be owned on the board with the stations no longer being able to be owned and the obvious absence of the waterworks and electric. All in all though it's a fun filled version where the players need to be more on the ball than ever! 
  2. This "Cheaters Edition" Monopoly is a big hit with my wife, mainly because "It's the only time I've ever beaten you at Monopoly". I approached the game with some healthy skepticism, but soon found myself thoroughly enjoying it.

    The game has a few variations on the standard Monopoly rules, making things a little simpler and faster.

    Firstly, whilst most of the usual properties are present and correct, the stations are now warp points instead of properties, and you move to the next station when you land on them. A nice touch. Additionally there are some pricing changes: There's a free property, another that comes with a free hotel, and yet another pitched at half price.

    The "Community Chest" and "Chance" cards have seen some changes too, so as well as the classic "Go to Jail" and "Get Out of Jail Free" cards, there's a "Celebrity" card to reverse the rent paid, when landing on a property. So if you land on someone else's property while holding the card, they have to pay you to stay there. There are cards to halve the rent paid until the landlord pays to renovate the property, as well as a good selection of other, well chosen cards. Hasbro have done a good job freshening up the game, without losing the core of Monopoly in the process.
    Additionally, when a player is sent to jail, they must wear a handcuff, which is a great idea.

    There's a neat twist to the cheater's edition, in that you are rewarded for cheating, according to one of five cheat cards set out on the board. Payers are encouraged to steal property, move other players pieces, take extra money from the bank, remove the handcuff or one of a variety of other little cheats. If caught cheating by another player, the cheater must pay a forfeit fine. If the cheater gets away with the cheat, they get a reward. If falsely accused of cheating, the false accuser takes a forfeit. I thought this aspect of the game would spoil Monoply, but I have to admit it actually adds to the fun, and actually incorporates a lot of the informal dodgy behaviour I've seen playing regular Monopoly at home, into the game rules. Put simply, it all gels together beautifully!

    Play time is a little shorter than usual Monopoly, with a two player game being able to be over in as little as half an hour, if luck is not on your side. (Much to my wife's delight.) I think that's actually a core part of the fun of this Cheaters Edition version of Monopoly, it's weighted a little more to be affected by luck than regular Monopoly, and benefits from it.

    The property cards are smaller than usual as they are arrayed around the edge of the board, and the notes have a unique "Shhh!" Cheaters Edition design for Rich Uncle Pennybags featured on each note. The character pieces are nicely detailed and well finished, and the dice are weighty and satisfying to use. The board is sturdy and nicely printed and the only gripe I've got about the game is that the storage options for all the bits could be a little better. Even the price is right, at a whisker under £20.

    All in all, this is an excellent evolution of a classic game, and arguably more fun than the original Monopoly. The shorter playing time makes it more of a game to pick up and have a go, rather than the commitment of time regular Monopoly can be, and the cheating adds to the fun. Highly recommended!
