This game is perfect for a family game. Having played original monopoly game many times as a child and adult I was not sure how this would go with my children, but it was great. The kids enjoyed themselves so much after the first game they asked to play it 2 more times and asked when we will play again. My kids are 6 and 8 and the directions were easy for them to follow which makes me a very happy mom! Less stress and more time to enjoy the quality time!
