 Lovely, but has been down-scaled

Presented in a durable wooden storage box, this is much closer in feel and styling to the vintage set of Monopoly that my brothers and I grew up playing at my grandparents' house. Gone are the flimsy, hollow, plastic hotels and houses that populate the standard version of the game, replaced with solid little wooden buildings. The playing pieces are nicely made and feel good to use.

However, despite the vintage theme to the design, the game has succumbed to modern trends in terms of property sizing. The cards and money are rather small - maybe two thirds the size of the regular edition ones - and can be quite fiddly. The playing board has also been cut down compared to a genuine vintage version in that it folds into quarters rather than in half, presumably to save on costs for the storage box.
