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 classic games that is played around the world has to be Monopoly (it has been around since as early as 1902, although then it was called The Landlord’s Game)!
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.
In the box:
- 1930’s Nostalgic Game Board
- Vintage Chance, Community Chance and Title Deeds Cards
- “Aged” Monopoly Money
- 6 Antique Bronze-finish Tokens
- Wooden Houses and Hotels
- Built-in Wooden Banker’s Tray and Storage Area
- 2 Ivory-coloured Dice
- Monopoly history and rules
Monopoly is a property trading game, buying houses and hotels and collecting rents and trying not to go bankrupt in the process. A fun game of capitalism for 2-6 players, aged 8+ with a playing time of around 60-90 minutes.
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 and building houses and hotels on them whilst charging rent to any of the other players that land on them. The ultimate goal is to bankrupt your fellow players and make as much money as you can, capitalism at its best (or worst, depending on your outlook)! But be prepared, Monopoly is a game that can take 1-2 hours to finish but the time just flies past.
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 (my original version is still in good condition at my mums house, which must be 40 years old now). If you love Monopoly, love making money and becoming a property magnate then this nostalgic version is the one to own, it is definitely worth the extra cost over standard editions.
With gameplay lasting around 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.
