Notify your friends and family. Game night is about to begin!
A staple of any get-together, Monopoly is a board game that causes as much frustration as it does fun, pitting friends and family against each other in a race to bankrupt the opposition.
Reading this as someone who has never encountered the game, you’d be forgiven for thinking that this is a one-and-done event, never to be repeated. You’d be wrong.
Decades after Parker Brothers (the original owner of Monopoly) was absorbed into Hasbro, the demand for new versions of the classic board game has never been higher. Why? Honestly, we don’t think anyone knows, but we hope you can find the answer in our top three editions.
1. Monopoly Mega Edition
If you’re looking for the complete Monopoly experience, there’s no better choice than the Mega Edition. Everyone is familiar with the basic concept of the vanilla game, but this version scales everything up to 11, enlarging the board, allowing for more extensive property development, and increasing the speed at which the game is played.
How’s this possible? We’re glad you asked. There are several enhancements made to the basic formula including 12 new spaces, the option to build skyscrapers and train depots, and an extra die (known as the speed die).
This is definitely a great way to switch things up if you’ve grown tired of the regular format.
