Electronic Banking Monopoly Game
We Love The Electronic Banking Edition of Monopoly
The Board Game of Monopoly Has Changed With The Times
The game of Monopoly has been around since the early 1900s and has been played by a billion people according to Wikipedia. I don't ever remember a time when there wasn't a game in our home. When we were kids, we kept one set up in the dining area. There were 4 of us children and we loved to play together or at least that is the way I remember it.Today, there are many editions of the game and my grandson and I recently discovered the Electronic Banking Monopoly Edition which we have found to be a lot of fun. In this version, there isn't a banker with all the colored bills but rather each player has a debit card and all the transactions are handled on the battery operated Debit Card Machine. Don't forget to purchase the batteries to go with this as a gift.Yes, this game has come a long way! Enjoy playing and learn some new skills or hone old ones. A Family Who Plays Together, Stays Together!Playing Board Games teaches many lessons to children and to adults and is a great way to spend some quality time. A lot of good thinking and reasoning goes on during a good game of Monopoly. Also, there are usually some good lessons in social skills to go along with it. I am 65 years old and I still remember playing board games with friends and family growing up and I remember learning many valuable lessons.
Electronic Banking Edition of Monopoly
A Fun Family Game - This game is educational and fun! It moves more quickly than the original edition
Properties and their values are different in this edition
as well as the method of payment
It usually takes me awhile to adapt to change and I love the original Monopoly game but I have to admit that this version is loads more fun. I was really surprised and pleased that I liked it so much. I know my grandson was thrilled. It was actually very interesting to experience the difference.Each player receives a Debit Card with a 15 million dollar balance. You choose a Banker to handle all the transactions. My grandson and I decided to do our own transactions and eliminated the need for a Banker. At any time, you can insert your card to check your balance. The Banker Unit (Credit Card Machine) has a plus side and a minus side. If you owe a player for rent you can put your card in the minus side and the other player's card in the plus side and enter the amount. The unit will deduct from your account and add to the other player's account.Instead of Railroads, there are 4 Airports: JFK, ORD (O'Hare), ATL, and LAXIf you own all four of the airports, the rent is 2MUtilities are Internet Service Provider and Cell Phone Service ProviderSome of the properties include:Disney OrlandoWrigley FieldLas Vegas BlvdGolden Gate BridgeGrand Ole OpryWhite HouseFrench QuarterWaikiki BeachSouth BeachLiberty BellInstead of Boardwalk and Park Place, you have Fenway Park which cost 350K and Times Square which cost $500KYou receive 2 Million Dollars every time you pass GO!So you see, it is both educational and fun!

This may have actually been the game that our daughter played with when she was little. I really can't remember now. It seems that we always had Monopoly in our homes.Today, there are so many different editions of Monopoly. I have played Oceanopoly and it is also a lot of fun and very educational. I have played many, many games of the original version through my years but the new Electronic Banking Edition has to be my all time favorite.
