In the 70th anniversary edition of this timeless board game, the neighborhood still looks exactly the same, with Marvin Gardens and Boardwalk in their expected places and properties still valued at 1930s prices. The object, as always, is to use business savvy to purchase properties and become the richest player by the end of the game. The difference is in the wrappings and this celebratory version comes packaged in an elegant embossed silver tin decorated in an Art Deco-inspired design. The glamorous Deco style is echoed on the foil-wrapped game board and also in the distinctive architecture of the houses and hotels in this set. Players will recognize their old favorites among the chrome-plated playing pieces--the shoe, the car, and (who could forget?) the thimble—but even some of those have had ornate decorative touch-ups. Most everything is high quality and placed in a velour-covered trays that can be reused for play. Even the cards are yellowed and aged to give it the 1930's feel.
