I’m addicted to Monopoly even though I never play the game anymore. Every time I see a new edition I want to buy it. I haven’t counted how many different versions I have in a while but I know I have a lot. I do try to not purchase every box I see because I’m on a budget so I try really hard to work with Hasbro every chance I get.
I was lucky enough to be selected to receive Monopoly Millionaire. And I love the idea of an end to the game. The board comes with 22 title deeds, 4 sets of movers (3 per player) 22 Fortune cards, 14 Millionaire lifestyle cards, 14 chance cards, 32 houses 12 hotels 2 dice money, bank tray and 4 reminder cards.
The 4 sets of movers start out as a small item and grow, a paper airplane, a jet to a really big plane. They represent basic wealth, up-and-coming and the final one was living the high life. You have the option to upgrade whenever you pass go it only costs 50K. By upgrading you increase the amount of money you are eligible to make.
Monopoly Millionaire is complete with stacks of cash (instead of single bills) and all-new, extravagant movers. The game introduces a new way to play, encouraging players to upgrade their lifestyle as they race to accumulate wealth and become the first to earn a million dollars – automatically winning the game.
As you move across the luxury-themed game board, you have the opportunity to upgrade your salary and mover – you may start off with a paper airplane, but you’ll be flying high in a private jet by the end of the game. All-new lifestyle and fortune cards keep the game moving as money shifts hands and players compete to collect properties and become the first millionaire! When you are setting the game up you need to put the fortune cards facedown on every property space at the start of the game. When you land on a space you follow the instructions on the fortune card.
And there are millionaire lifestyle cards you take one of these cards when you land on the matching space and enjoy living the dream. I would choose the boats but so would Miles because they are blue, but then again he does love airplanes more than anything else. I like how the money looks and feels. It’s thick like cardboard and there is a lot less of it so I know that the game is designed to go quickly.
The game is pretty simple as it’s just like any other Monopoly game except it’s always moving. You roll, buy or let someone else buy or pay rent. I’m really excited to add Millionaire Monopoly to my Monopoly collection.
