A game review written by: Lee Sonogan
(1935) Board game
“I’m at the top of my game. And that game is Monopoly. I’m standing on the board right now.” – Jarod Kintz
Everybody knows of this board game. More than 1 billion people have played it. People roll a six-sided dice to move around a board and can buy and trade properties. This board game came out in 1935. Currently the company Hasbro owns the right to the board game. On average this game is played with 2-6 people and other versions 2-10. Which game piece do you choose for this game?
The gameplay of the board game is a high chance game. Dice rolling and card drawing is entirely random. While winning is to buy houses and sending everyone else into bankruptcy. Money is also used in the game and it is used and lost while moving around the board. Such as community chest, paying taxes on other people’s houses or landing in jail.
There are many variations of this game. That includes many different rules and hundreds of different themed Monopoly sets. You will need negotiation and resource management strategy skills to win this game. Every few years, national champions around the globe meet for a the World championships Tournament. Games on average can go on for 1-4 hours at a time. The longest game played upside down lasted 36 hours.
This board game is also a video game. Some are free and some are in video games along with other board games. Online you can play this game with friends and unknown people. More people playing this game the better. My game piece I usually choose for this game is usually the battleship or the thimble. I recommend this game to everyone if you have the time to play it and the patience to endure it.
“I think it’s wrong that only one company makes the game Monopoly.” – Steven Wright
