Everyone knows that playing Monopoly takes forever. That's usually why no one ever wants to play it except for die-hard fans. Well, if you think playing the original takes forever, then think again. Now there's a new version of Monopoly called Monopoly Longest Game Ever.
So what makes this the longest game ever? For starters, the game board is super long with 66 properties. And in order to win, you have to own all of the properties. Now, don't be alarmed. There are three versions of each property on the board, and if you buy one, you own them all. When you own all three versions of a property, you can split your buildings up among those versions any way you'd like and even move your buildings around on your turn. However, other players may pay to steal your properties, even if you own the full color set. Mortgaged properties are safe, though.
There's also only one die, there are no auctions, you get money if you land on Free Parking, you're still in the game even if you're bankrupt, and you can rip up the money. That's right. In the instructions, Hasbro says it doesn't know how long the game will last, so if you run out of money, just rip your bills in half so that a $500 bill becomes two $500 bills, for instance.
There are also four new game tokens: a silver rabbit and a silver turtle, and a gold rabbit and a gold turtle.
Other than that, the game pretty much plays the same way. Roll the die, move around the board, buy up properties, and pay other players rent. Once you have a full color set, you can build a house. Once you have four houses on a street, you can upgrade to a hotel. Chance and Community Chest cards are still part of the game, as are Just Visiting and Go to Jail spaces. And you still collect $200 when you pass or land on Go.
If you're a Monopoly super fan, you might want to play this interesting new twist on the classic game. Apparently, the longest game of Monopoly ever played, on record, was 70 straight days. So maybe someone will beat that record playing this new version. This game isn't going to appeal to everyone because, well, most people like it when a game ends and they can move on with their lives. This certainly gives fans a new way to play, but the original Monopoly really is long enough.
Monopoly Longest Game Ever is for two to four players ages 8 and up.
The game includes a gameboard, four tokens, 22 Title Deed cards, 16 Chance cards, 16 Community Chest cards, 32 houses, 12 hotels, a die, and a money pack.
