My Thoughts 

 Finally, there's a game I can actually play with my kids! The Monopoly Family Fun Pack is an exciting family game that brings a classic board games to life on the small screen. You can have up to six players. Each one just has to take a turn with the controller. You can choose to play against the computer, or log on using Xbox Live to play with other people all over the world.  This one game includes
Monopoly, Trivial Pursuit Live, RISK, and Scrabble

Playing the virtual versions is pretty much the same as playing the board game, except you don't have to worry about losing pieces and there are fun special effects throughout. Playing with my family was a lot of fun. Even the younger ones can take part.  I really love the option of being able to save the game. We all know how frustrating it can be to have to shut down the board game after it goes on for hours with no winner. You can't leave the physical game set up on the table for days on end, but now you can pick up right where you left off in this virtual version.


Playing online wasn't quite as much fun. If your opponent leaves, the game can end abruptly. My kids prefer playing with each other or against the computer rather than going online. We also had trouble getting it to connect online at times. It would freeze a lot of just refuse to connect. This was a little frustrating, but ultimately my kids are happy with the game, so I am as well.
