It's a hoot. No paper money changes hands. It's all done with the cards so no waving handfuls of notes and shouting 'loudsa money'. No chance cards either, the electonic thingy does it all.

None of this lessens the pain and anguish of having to mortgage your empire to stay in a Mayfair hotel though.

we have a history of cheating at Monopoly in my family. Do you see possibilities with this one? liking the butter tart.

Erm, not sure about this, how much calculation (maths) is involed in this game, is it all done for you or do you still have to use your brain ;) just joking, I am itching to play :D

Swamprose - yeah, lots of possibilities for cheating in this one as people have to punch in the numbers themselves. But does stop the banking from siphoning off funds ... so not like real life.

FF - it's a little mind bending but a bit more lively in parts.

Maggie - I wasn't sure about that at first too. Players don't have to make change or add up the value of notes any more and so that bit is lost. But then my kids have mastered that - just watch them trying stretch their pocket money in the sweet shop. But there is still lots of maths in other ways - the dice is still rolled which practices number bonds and mortgaging is all about percentages so they get some practice.

although half the fun for me is siphoning funds and giving them out under the table...

My brain can't cope with this. I'm much more of a Trivial Pursuit and Scrabble kind of girl.
