Monopoly Nostalgic is a high quality version of this popular board game.
We all love playing board games, they can be fun and are an excellent way to spend quality with family and friends. There are lots of board games on the market, but one of the most well-known and long established games that is played around the world has to be Monopoly!
I have played Monopoly since I was child. This property trading game is a classic board game that has been around for over 100 years, has different versions for cities around the world and I was delighted when asked to review the Monopoly Nostalgic set, for the UK market with its London streets and landmarks.
This Monopoly Nostalgic set comes supplied in a very sturdy, heavy, quality wooden box that contains all the pieces underneath the slide out lid. The box contains wooden houses and hotels, bronze finish playing pieces and vintage looking cards, playing board and rules of the game. The wooden box also has a built in bankers tray to sort the money into the denominations to make it easier for the money to be dealt. No more flimsy plastic pieces, real quality. The board, mover pieces and cards all have a vintage look to them although the cards and money are smaller than previous versions.
As we all know, the idea of the game is make your way around the board buying properties whilst charging rent to any of the other players that land on your properties, with the ultimate goal of bankrupting your fellow players, capitalism at its best (or worst, depending on your outlook)! Be prepared for a game that can take a few hours to finish.
This nostalgic version of this popular board game is a far superior quality version of the classic board game that I grew up with and loved. Everything about it screams quality and it should last a very, very long time. If you love Monopoly then this nostalgic version is the one to own, it is definitely worth the extra cost over standard editions.
With gameplay lasting at least two hours, this classic game provides hours of fun on your way to becoming a property tycoon and if you are going to spend that length of time playing a game then you might as well do it with a quality set. Highly recommended.
