MONOPOLY is still the king of board games, but it unfortunately requires a hefty time investment to play a single game. And while no one likes to see companies tampering with the classics, I like what Hasbro has done with this U-Build version of the game. From what I can tell the gameplay is mostly the same, but the board has been replaced with a series of configurable tiles letting you build a classic 60-minute version of MONOPOLY, or leave out certain properties so it takes half that time. It also appears to include a few updates to MONOPOLY’s houses and hotels with skyscrapers and factories, but the original concepts appear to hold true. $19.99, available at probably any store with a healthy stock of board games.
