Monopoly Deal — a new favourite family game (which is perfect for traveling too!)

This summer we met with family friends during our holiday in France, and our children were introduced to a new game: Monopoly Deal . Which is basically ‘Mini Monopoly’ — not only in size but also in time! The size of a deck of cards, this game can be played in just about 15 minutes and is super fun and addictive. It is also perfect to bring along when traveling, to a restaurant, etcetera.

Monopoly Deal has the same basic principles of Monopoly (collecting properties and earning money by collecting rent), but now can steal from your opponents as well. Keep in mind though, other players will be able to steal from you too! It is a fast paces game and super addictive. We have given Casper a set of Monopoly Deal for his birthday last week, and my kids haven’t stopped playing since. Currently we are on a mini break in Portugal, and this game was the first thing they put in our bags! (It was great entertainment on the plane, as you can see!)

So, a definite recommendation, and perhaps something that easily fits in a stocking or shoe in a month or two. 😉 Best for children 8 years and older.
