My family are avid Monopoly fans. At Christmas when we all get together we actually have Monopoly tounaments with a prized going to the winner. While I was shopping in Toys R US I saw the Monopoly Here & Now Electronic Banking edition on sale. It was the best of both worlds - Monopoly (that I LOVE to play) and on SALE (I NEVER pass up a good sale)!
This Electronic Banking edition uses plastic VISA cards instead of dollar bills that the older versions of Monopoly games use. The banker actually has control over calculator like device that gives the ability to add or take away money from players VISA cards. This device takes 2 AAA batteries. There are 6 VISA cards that comes with the game.
What's even better is that it is the Canadian edition. The properties are all from major cities in Canada! Like instead of Boardwalk as the most expensive property it is the CN Tower. Yonge Street, Robson Street, Cabot Trail, Magnetic Hill are all properties available on the game board. My kids get to not only learn about spending and money but Canadian geography as well!
This game is family time well spent!
