YAY !!!!! Thank you everyone for the Monopoly advise. I finally had a Saturday off from working (and it was a rainy day), so I played The Beatles Monopoly with my family. I have never won at Monopoly. (As the youngest of all the cousins on both sides of my family, I would always loose first. Since being married, my husband always wins.)

I WON !
I actually won !
The advise really worked....along with some lucky rolls from the dice (I kept rolling #9).

YAY !!!

I love this game. It's like playing monopoly all over again.

Here's a link to it, available in the US & UK.

Well, this review is quite critical:

Quote:
My initial impression of this new customized edition of the venerable Monopoly game -- theme du jour, the Beatles -- is less than fab. Compared to other special Monopoly editions, this one seems slap-dash and unimaginative, with fewer in-jokes and wit. I'm afraid Apple took the easy way and treated this as nothing so much as a slick promo for the Beatles' back catalog -- the game components seem drawn mainly from album covers, the same old pictures and titles we've known for all these years. There's not much sparkle in this pedestrian presentation, it's not at all the romp I was expecting from the first official Beatles boardgame in over four decades. Hmmph. All those visuals and lyrics and imagery and creativity to draw from, and this dull product was the best (or least controversial) treatment they could do? I used to work as a game designer in the hobby game industry -- I'd design a better Beatles Monopoly game than this in two weeks and charge nothing, just to see this project done properly. Call me, Hasbro! I do like the Rocky Raccoon token, however.

It just goes to show, you can't please everyone. I happen to think it's pretty cool the way it is.

well I gotta admit I was expecting something a little more creative than just albums and I was hoping the cards (fab four & beatlemania) would have been a little more creative as well, instead of basically song titles. But geez, beggars can't be choosers. After seeing the Elvis one around for ages I kept wondering when a Beatles one was finally gonna come around, if ever. To be honest, I didnt think it would happen. But I am very satisfied with it

Has anyone posted the photo of Paul holding the game uder his arm? I saw it in The Daily Mail online. Does anyone know if it is cheaper to get this game at the Beatlefest site or Amazon? Thanks!

My mom bought me The Beatles Monopoly for my birthday (which isn't for another week but I couldn't wait to open it)

I love it!!
Though.. it lacks a bit of creativity.
At least, I think so.


It doesn't matter though. I still love it. haha

Yeah I agree. I was hoping the spaces and cards would be more than just albums and song titles. I mean, there's really no thought involved there.
