More fun WWWINesday love, and this time …it’s from our friends at Hasbro!!
As you know, games are a hit in my household, and I know that many of you enjoy them as well. This next review is for an old favorite with a new twist.
About Monopoly Electronic Banking Edition: All it takes to become a real estate tycoon is the swipe of a bank card in Monopoly: Electronic Banking Edition. Keep your finances at your fingertips with an electronic banking unit as players buy property, pay bills and collect debts from opponents to become the richest player in the game. And rich just got richer! With updated property values as high as $4 million and paychecks for passing “GO” equaling $2 million, players will become moguls faster than ever as they wheel and deal their way around the board!
Electronic Banking Edition is currently available at mass merchandise retailers nationwide for $24.99. For a limited time, they are offering a coupon to their Facebook fans for $4 off. Hurry, this is a limited time offer while supplies last!
Hasbro invites the next generation of property tycoons to practice valuable money skills while helping other kids – all while having fun and playing games at the new Monopoly Planet page at Monopoly.com. Monopoly is teaming up with the global organization SOS Children’s Villages for the launch to offer kids the opportunity to help build houses in real life for kids who need them.
Hasbro’s Monopoly brand has committed to a total donation of $400,000 to SOS Children’s Villages. The more games kids play at Monopoly Planet the faster they could be helping MONOPOLY support SOS Children’s Villages, which is the world’s largest organization that provides homes and families to children without biological parents to care for them. In addition to operating more than 500 villages in 133 countries, SOS Children’s Villages advocates for the rights of children worldwide. Additionally, the organization helps to keep at-risk families together and helps at-risk families to prevent child abandonment. For more information about SOS Children’s Villages, visit www.sos-usa.org.
By playing games at MONOPOLY Planet, kids earn Power Points that will be converted into a cash donation of up to $100,000 (of the total $400,000 donation to SOS Children’s Villages). If at the end of the program the Power Points earned equate a donation of less than $100,000, Hasbro’s MONOPOLY will make up the difference.
My thoughts? Games are always a hit, but I loved this one because my kids always see our “old” Monopoly game up in the game closet, and they beg to play, but quite honestly… it’s just too complicated and advanced. This one, however, is a nice fit because while my youngest doesn’t really understand all of the in’s and outs…she can play along and the machine helps to track her score. It is wonderful for helping my son with his math and decision making and of course, Mommy and Daddy love it because it’s Monopoly, and who doesn’t love that!!? It also cracks me up that the playing pieces in this game are not the traditional ones … my kids got the biggest kick out of the skateboard and the roller blade!
