Early Life and Education
Monopoly can be an engaging game, yet many don’t read or follow its rules and end up spending three or more hours playing a torturous game due to house rules which slow and lessen its enjoyment; these could include fees on Free Parking spaces and auctioned properties.
Hasbro continues to update Monopoly to reflect modern play, offering this double-sided board that offers two different levels of gameplay – one dedicated to counting and matching for children aged 4-5 while the other side focuses on strategy play for older players.
This side focuses on reading and basic math for kids aged 6 years or above. This version substitutes paper money with cardboard tiles for quicker gameplay; its goal is to reach $1 million cash before losing. Additionally, the game includes a gameboard, Title Deeds, 4 sets of movers per player (three per side), Fortune Cards, Millionaire Lifestyle cards and Chance cards, money tray and dice.
MONOPOLY Millionaire is an adaptation of Monopoly that shifts the goal away from bankrupting opponents to amassing wealth. Players must become the first one to accumulate one million dollars to win; as opposed to traditional Community Chest spaces there are instead “Millionaire Lifestyle” spaces; upgraded mover tokens and Fortune cards enhance this experience further by adding more money and luxury properties into play.
Mortgages are also new to this version of Monopoly; unimproved property can now be mortgaged at half its value as listed on each Title Deed card, making a game last only 2-3 hours if all players adhere to its simple rules. Also included is a shortened Monopoly game board, 32 houses and hotels, 4 sets of movers per player (three per set), dice, real and fake money as well as the Monopoly Millionaire game guide.
Achievement and Honors
Bjorn Halvard, a 19 year-old Norwegian student, beat competitors from 41 different nations to capture the 2009 Monopoly World Championship and Bennett Awards created a special award just for him.
This game comes complete with a revamped Monopoly board, Title Deed cards, four sets of movers (3 per player), Fortune cards, Millionaire Lifestyle cards and Chance cards as well as 32 Houses, 12 Hotels, two six-sided dice, thick cardboard Money (which is great fun to handle!) and a Bank Tray to store it all safely.
This game includes tournaments, milestone events and rewards with upgrading Lifestyle ranks offering more rewards for each one. However, classic Monopoly lacks railroads, utilities and tax spaces so this version doesn’t offer as many features or opportunities for rewards.
Charles Darrow first invented Monopoly during the Great Depression to keep himself and his family amused during an otherwise hopeless era of American life. Although initially created out of necessity, its immense popularity later provided many Americans with some hope.
Magie strongly opposed Parker Brothers selling Monopoly game in 1936 and protested vehemently, although her efforts did not stop its massive sales success.
Monopoly Millionaire players start off with $1500 of both real and fake money (with separate denominations for both). A banker shuffles and handles these bills during play; without paper currency present, this game exudes luxury; however it lacks tax cards which would penalize wealthy players who accumulate assets quickly.
This game includes a Monopoly game board, 22 Title Deed cards (properties), four sets of Movers (3 for each player for a total of 12 movers), Fortune Cards, Millionaire Lifestyle cards and Chance cards, 32 Houses and 12 Hotels as well as 2 six-sided dice with values between 1-100 thousand dollars, 1 Bank Tray that holds all this Money as well as four Reminder Cards.
The key gameplay difference lies in its strategy: rather than winning by bankrupting other players, you aim to reach $1,000,000 first by upgrading game movers for an immersive Millionaire lifestyle experience as they roll across the board. Furthermore, new Fortune and Millionaire Lifestyle cards accelerate how quickly money is earned or lost.
