Kid Tested: The Monopoly Deal card game

Once upon a time there was a board game that families played until the cows came home. Not so much because they enjoyed playing Monopoly, but because that's how long it took to crown a winner.

Now there's a version of the classic Parker Brothers game that can be played in 15 minutes.

First impression: "This looks like a confusing game to play."

What's cool: The game doesn't last as long as other Monopoly games.

What needs improving: Nothing.

Would you recommend it: "Yes, it's easy to play and you can play it anywhere." No need to collect teeny board pieces.
