Monopoly-Tropical Tycoon

Posted: July 12, 2010 in boardgames

I can think of no better game to start out talking about than Monopoly. To the “elitist” hobby gamer Monopoly is to be avoided like the plague and is the poster child for what is wrong with boardgaming. I disagree. Monopoly is and always has been a great game. If it wasn’t good, it wouldn’t sell and Monopoly has probably sold more copies than any other game. This version of Monopoly is Tropical Tycoon and sports a high tech update to the classic game by having a DVD as a play aid.

If you roll a TV icon on one of the dice then a news update happens and all kinds of things can happen to your economic situation. Players also have a job from, mayor to land developer, to even a surfer and this has many effects on game play as well. The Community Chest and Chance cards are revealed on the DVD as well .

The game laso allows you to build new improvements such as casinos and ports and these add a new flavor to the classic Monopoly. Another great feature is the fortune tokens that you accumulate and they allow you to quit the game at any time and just total your tokens to see who won.

Big thumbs up for this wonderful upgrade to Monopoly!
