Summary: My son bought this and I played with him as a favor. We used to love to play Monopoly, but this is much easier to walk away from -- the cats can't wreak havoc with our board while we're taking a break. Learning winning strategy is challenging but rewarding. I do wish there were more choices of characters, but at least there is one decent female character so I guess I should be grateful for that.
Summary: My oldest son loves Mario. So when I saw this game, I thought it was a fair price as well. I thought it might have been kind of cheesey with the name of "Fortune Street" but I am very pleased with it. Both of my sons end up playing it and it keeps them entertained and it's actually a really cute game.
