Monopoly City
« on: February 27, 2009, 10:29:44 »
Erik Arneson, the Board Games Guide at About.com got a photo of the upcoming Monopoly City. According to his article, Hasbro at the 2009 American International Toy Fair, there will be "more than 80 plastic structures available to players, including industrial blocks, stadiums, skyscrapers and parks" and  "you can negatively impact other players' property values by building undesirable structures nearby." What do you think of the changes?

It looks promising.  I've never been a fan of the original game, or any of its spin-offs with the possible exception of Spaceopoly (or whatever it was called).  I am a fan of Sim City however, and the setup of this board looks like it might be an amalgamation of the two concepts.

If that is in fact the case, I'd definately be willing to give it a try.  My one disappointment already is that when I saw the title of the post, I was imagining more "streets" to give you more movement options, but I am willing to reserve judgement untill I see more on the game.
