Monopoly is possibly the most famous board game in the United States. It has a reputation of being boring and too long but in my opinion it is one of the more funner board games you can play. The Deluxe Edition includes updated graphics, card holders, money holders, bonus playing pieces, and a more organized layout. I definitely recommend the Deluxe over the regular because the price difference is not much and the game goes much more smoothly with the added features. Monopoly requires strategy and luck and the game can get pretty heated if enough people are playing. It does require that everyone who is playing be focused on winning because one person who is not into it can ruin the experience for everyone else. If you are looking for a board game that will last you a very long time, I would take a look at the inexpensive deluxe edition of monopoly for hours of gaming fun.
