Monopoly Deal

I met with some old friends over the weekend, and was introduced to a new card game.

I have always been a fan of card games – especially bridge! But it’s been eons since my last bridge game, and my mental capabilities have since been compromised by motherhood.

Monopoly has always been a perennial childhood favourite game, and they have this card version, called Monopoly Deal. You can get this from Toys R Us at just S$8… A good deal, if you ask me, for the oodles of fun it brings!

According to Mel, one deck can support up to 5 players, and for more than 5 players, you can simply add another deck of cards.

The rules sounded a little complicated when I first started playing, but after the first round (and getting soundly beaten by the guys) I quickly got the hang of it! It is a fun and addictive game, great when you’re hanging with friends and want to have a laughing session!

I like Monopoly but am having a hard time translating it into a card game. We even have Animal Monopoly.

Visiting from SITS.
