Build your own Monopoly Game with U-Build version
by Mark R
We’ve reported on many a Monopoly game before, such as the version that uses Google Maps.
Hasbro has done another rework on this most famous franchise with the U-build version. Of course, they did not mess with the rules, but you know how Monopoly games can be very long? This is the best way to really have a short game.
The U-build has all the spaces from Monopoly in the form of configurable tiles so you can eliminate all of those pesky properties in the middle. For example, those stupid dark green properties near Boardwalk and Park Place that everyone lands on but no one ever buys.
Of course, you don’t know what kind of game you might end up with. Maybe you will get one that is a little too short. You will notice that there are some nice updates like stack-able houses, along with hotels, skyscrapers, and factories.
You should be able to get U-Build Monopoly for about $19.99. As far as I know, I don’t know whether Hasbro is planning any more U-Build games, but I’m trying to think of some options. For example, Chutes and Ladders, Candy Land, or any other classics. I suppose we could make Battleship into a 4 x 4 grid, but that would be a quick game.
