How is this any different from Monopoly Gamer? I mean don't get me wrong, my kids LOVE monopoly gamer, but this looks like the same thing.

How is it different?

Once you land on or pass GO, instead of fighting a boss character on your own, you initiate a race in which everyone can pay to participate in. Board spaces and powers are also different, more geared towards Mario Kart than the last game. Unfortunately, there isn't a deluxe version, so I just use the coins from the original.

boss battles are different. its now a race. you have to pay to participate in them, and highest roll wins.

there is also now a banana on the die. when you roll a banana, you may drop it somewhere. whoever runs into a banana, immediately stops moving

It's amazing how many times a banana gets put on the Go To Jail space...

Yeah. That makes it a thematic race to that spot so as to both utilize and avoid being a victim to that tactic. I actually like it.

I made a custom 30x30 board with modified elements to make the Jail space more thematic.

So instead of dropping the banana anywhere, how about throwing the die to see how far behind you the banana lands? Takes away the forced jail time and makes the power up more ... apeeling....
