    Monopoly – The Way It Used To Look, November 1, 2010
    By 

    This review is from: Monopoly Board Game The Classic Edition (Toy)
    I was pleasantly surprised to find out that a classic version of Monopoly was released in the style that it used to appear. This means: bi-fold board (folds in half, not in quarters), no Rich Uncle Pennybags (Monopoly man) in the center of the game’s name, and only the original tokens. Even the design of the packaging has a 70’s/80’s/90’s kind of look, especially on the back side.

    At first I was disappointed that the game has plastic hotels and houses, but I did some research, and apparently these pieces have been plastic for decades as far as I can tell. Therefore, you shouldn’t hold the plastic pieces against this version.

    Bottom line: I’m glad they did this edition accurately, which is usually the case when a retro edition of Monopoly is released.

    Like many parents, I bought the modern version of Monopoly to play with my kids, only to find out the money tray had shrunk in order to fit the new smaller box. This is not good if you like a tidy place to put the money. So, imagine my surprise and delight to discover they still made the old “Classic” game — although for more money. I find I really like the Classic better. I suppose, if you never knew the difference, it wouldn’t matter. But, once you’ve tried the “Classic” style, it’s hard to go back. Some things can’t be improved on.

    This classic version of Monopoly is very similar to the original version which I played as a kid more than 25 years ago. In one of the reviews it was mentioned that this set is made in the USA but it is not. Apart from the appeal of the classic version, there are minor differences in the quality of this compared to the $12 version (ASIN:B00000IWCT) which my kids friends have. The hotels and houses are classic and good quality. The currency is marginally better than the standard version. The board which comes with this set is a half-fold and not the quarter-fold. While this makes for a bigger package, it does provide a better quality board (thicker) and you can always pause the game with its artifacts inside the half fold before playing again. The title deed, community chest and chance cards are thicker and good quality with crisp print and uniform cuts. The dices are hard and heavy plastic so they have a good feel. The tokens are metal and very similar to the one’s from yonder years – they just seem smaller, although I do not think they are. Currency is average paper – I was expecting better. The good thing with this version is that you can enjoy with kids and adults alike because of the “classic” factor. Overall, this is a buy.
