    Best Version of Monopoly

    I'm a fan of Nintendo characters, so this was appealing to me from the get-go, but as I researched this game, I found that the consensus was that this version had fixed many of the issues that bogged down the original version of Monopoly - namely, the hours it takes to play and the complexity of the rules. This game takes away those issues and creates a truly fun experience. I bought this game and played it with my wife (who isn't a Monopoly fan) and my parents (who aren't Nintendo fans). Everybody had an enjoyable experience, and we ended up playing it two separate times in a 12-hour period. To me, that's a good game. I docked this game 1 star because I felt that the character abilities were a little lopsided. For instance, it is far easier to win this game while playing as Donkey Kong than it is with Yoshi just due to the nature of their "power-ups." Though I am appreciative the novelty of each character having specific nuances, I would've liked a little more of a fair playing field. If you add the "expansion pack" figurines to the mix, then it compounds this problem quite a bit as the original characters from this game aren't nearly as powerful.

    Purchased this game awhile back and then recently, purchased it for a friend as a gift. REALLY fun game! Not very hard to follow, the instructions are clear. Great game for 2 players so if you do not have a big group, this game is still very enjoyable. Each character has their own special abilities and there is a card that goes with each one....makes it easy to switch characters and know how to play them. I love the fact that you can purchase additional characters for like $3.00 to $4.00 a pop. However, it kind of makes it a bit more expensive especially since they seem to be making a lot of different characters for the game. Still, this game is a good purchase and fun to play! Definitely recommended!

    This version differs from the standard version in that the coins are plastic rather than labeled cardboard pieces. Also Boswer is an exclusive character in this edition. Bowser Jr. is also exclusive in this edition although as the Final Boss (Bowser is the final boss in the standard edition.) Also the game board is a light blue with "Monopoly Gamer" printed in black lettering. The standard edition is just a plain black game board underneath if Im not mistaken. Also in the collectors edition are empty spaces to store all additional character tokens. The instruction booklet is now more in depth. Has mini character biographies and also doubles as a sticker book. Best Buy has recently replenished all character tokens (Gamer Packs).

    It uses coins instead of bills, there's a special ability for every character you can choose, and a Mario Kart-esque attack die, so the rules are a little different. Despite that, it's simplified because there's no extra houses on the properties, and best of all with the Boss system (fight one boss every time you pass Go), the games don't go on for hours! It was great. And there are extra figures you can buy for the game to go along with the five included, so that's fun. I hope they make more versions of this Gamer's Monopoly, because this one is great.

    Very funny! My 6 year old son asked for this for Christmas and we all enjoyed playing. The game is very different from the original Monopoly game, but to be honest, it's a great reason to love it. This game is much faster than the original that we rarely finished playing because it took too much time and we lost interest and we ended up leaving it. The theme of Mario also makes it much more entertaining for children. 100% recommendable

    My 8 yr old loves all things MARIO. We enjoy playing this game as a family. It’s a fun twist on the classic. The additional packs of characters are a cute variation on the game though at 5 bucks a pop, it drives the cost up. I also think the collectors addition is worth the extra money bc it keeps everything tidy and has special slots for those additional characters I mentioned. Bought it for my niece too

    This game is SO MUCH FUN! We played for the first time on Thanksgiving. It took a few minutes to get used to it. It's like a mix of Mario Kart, Super Mario, and Monopoly. It was great fun! A variety of ages played and everyone had a great time. It wasn't as long as a regular Monopoly game which was also nice. We can't wait for a big crowd to be at our house to play again.

    Great gift for a collector of toys, games, videos and books. Could not find this item any other place. Each piece is designed with great craftsmanship. Experience monoply as Mario thru the excitement of a gamer. Brought back memories of when my children were younger. Mario has spanded the ages in this monoply game.

    So we had the regular Mario Monopoly, the money was cardboard and came with a few characters. Bought this one on sale for Xmas, comes with the Bowser figure and the coin money is actual plastic, I believe it costs the same as the normal versio, so get this collectors edition instead

    Perfect mix of one of our favorite games, and our other favorite activity. We play games all the time, and Monopoly is one of our faves. We have about 20 variations, this is now one of our favorites.. and we all have our favorite piece:)

    I originally bought this just because I am a huge Mario fan, but I was very surprised and happy to find out that this is a "new" version of monopoly. I've had a blast playing this with my friends, they all love it!

    I did have initial reservations about getting this Mario Monopoly game as a Christmas Gift. based on the game pieces they chose. After some research and actually playing the game it is actually a good time and am more than willing to buy the additional game pieces.

    High Price but Lots of Fun

    We just picked this up recently and though the high price tag is to be expected, with it being a Nintendo themed game, it was a blast. Plays a lot more simple than regular monopoly but it's easy to pick up and learn, and games still take just as long.

    Fun little board game. If you like monopoly, and if you like Mario, you will like this. It is a bit unclear where to buy the extra characters. That's my only complaint. Each character has special powers which is cool.

    The best version of the game available

    This version of the game includes the exclusive character Bowser. I do not recommend buying any other version of the game for that reason. I'm not sure why they even made a version without Bowser. This one is the definitive version.

    My family wants to play Monopoly now with Monopoly Gamer. It changes the game enough to make it fresh and fun for all ages. No more bills, but coins is a nice touch. Price is a little high, but worth it for me and my family.

    This Monopoly Gamer is very different than the "normal" Monopoly game and other Monopoly games we have (i.e. Empire). It is interesting and easy to play, but some strategy is involved. My 10 year old likes it and so do we.

    Great Monopoly game using Nintendo characters and themes. Family loves playing it together. We also purchased some of the other available character tokens for extra players. Also makes a great Nintendo collectors piece.

    Usually I would loose in any Monopoly games, but this one is quick and I actually won a few games. I do wish they had more $1 coins. With so many players available, we need more $1 coins.

    If you are a gamer and like board games this is a fun spin on the classic Monopoly games. Choosing your character and using their special ability to gain an advantage adds a level of strategy to Monopoly as well.
