we have Junior Monopoly, and Bean loves it.

I thought, I'd go buy a new version of the game, and was overwhelmed with the options.

What is the best version and why?

The frayed old 1940s English version that sat in the back of the cupboard in our holiday house.

Why?

Because all the tokens were made of metal and the fights over who got what  were legendary.

Also because I swallowed the little dog in about 1974 and he went 'chink' when I pooed him out again!  After that I ALWAYS got to have the little dog - no-one fought for him any more!  

Sometimes I really wanted the iron though..

Dad got the car - Dad always got the car..... he wouldn't play if he wasn't the car.

We have the Kids version and then at a holiday house we stayed at they had the old traditional one (with pounds!) and DS1 LOVED it (he's 7). We got our classic travel version out when we got home and they love it.

laughing2.gif I am always the dog. DH told me yesterday they are getting rid of the iron and replacing it with a cat. Great move IMO. No one ever wants the iron (apart from Countrmel apparently) .

We have tropical Monopoly and Monopoly City. The Tropical one has a CD and it is interactive. FIne for the first 10 times then gets a bit boring, although DD (10) still likes it (good for younger kids). The City version, quite complicated to remember all the rules. And someone always knocks over your buildings.

Original the best so far.

You won't be pleased that they're getting rid of it, then. They're replacing the iron with a cat.

Original all the way here, especially the old 50s version we used to have. Only if I get to be the top hat though.

We have Disney monopoly and Sydney monopoly. I do have a soft spot for the classic though

But when you were the iron you could iron all over the board, iron over your sister's hotels, iron your way out of gaol...

And it was so little and cute.

Cat!

Who would ever believe that a cat will go in the direction you want it to simply because the dice said so.

Cat...

*shakes head in disbelief*


*wanders away to lament the fact that the family Monopoly now lives with nephews....*


*realises that big sister has obviously forgotten that the dog has passed through my digestive tract and is probably touching it right now*

*sniggers in vindictive manner*

We have an original version, a US version, australian version and also the sex and the city version. All have the same rules. The sex and the city folds up and is easy to transport for holidays (oh and really pretty) though not sure it is appropriate to buy for a child (though without looking it is family friendly)
