To celebrate it’s 75th anniversary, Monopoly has a new video game called Monopoly Streets that allows the player to see their virtually animated city be built property by property. “MONOPOLY STREETS has everything you love about the board game, presented as a street level tour of Mr. Monopoly’s fully animated world”.
There are 3 boards to choose from. You can stay with the “classics” or engaged in the Monopoly City version or the Landmark version that takes you to landmarks around the world. You get to pick the token you want to be, I like “driving” the car!! The best part, even though it is a video game you can customize the game to accommodate your own house rules like setting your own tax rates or like in my house making the “Free Parking” space a money maker!!
Monopoly Streets is available for the Wii, PS3, and XBox 360.
It is no secret that my family loves playing games. While the classics are great, today’s kids are more intrigued by video games than board games. At our house, we had an “Old vs. New” contest. We would played the traditional and the Monopoly Streets for Wii. Conclusion… they were both fun in their own ways.
We had many laughs around the table as I bankrupted everyone!! The kids made the new rule that I had to land on the same property twice before I could purchase??? They call it luck, I call it skill….
The new Monopoly Streets is cool because it is fun to “see” yourself driving down Broadway and building a high rise. Check out the latest Monopoly Streets Trailer . I think it’s cool that Mr. Monopoly has a GPS in his car…. although I don’t know why he would need one because men don’t need to ask for directions LOL!
I like that the Monopoly Streets games is family friendly. It is good, clean fun. The kids love Monopoly Streets. It is a modern twist on an old game. I think we will make a lot of memories on family game night with Monopoly Streets.
