** I was sent a copy of this game for the purpose of this review. However, my own opinion was used and not influenced in any way.
I am a sucker for Monopoly! It is one of my all time favorite board games. I have probably played Monopoly over 100 times in my life. I just can’t get enough.
Recently I was sent a copy of Monopoly Empire for the purpose of this review. I was really excited for this game because it gives a twist to my favorite game. Instead of playing to purchase land…..you can purchase the name brands that we all know and love. Brands like Xbox, Coca-Cola, EA Sports, Chevrolet, ebay and more!
The tokens in this game are also a little different. Instead of the dog and top hat you can play with a box of McDonald’s French Fries, a movie reel or a motorcycle…and they are gold in color! How fun!
Also in this game you will not be purchasing home and such but you will be building empire towers where you can add the brands you own. You can build an entire city of brands. I really like the new twist to this game. Plus it was exciting for my daughter as well. She was thrilled to be able to purchase brands that she sees every day like Nerf and Samsung! What a blast!
