Who doesn’t love James Bond? Everyone Loves James Bond and as the nations favourite board game, Monopoly have excelled themselves by teaming up with Mr 007 for their 50th anniversary. The board game features scenes and imagery from all 23 James Bond Films, and each character piece is individually crafted to look just like famous parts of James Bond – for example – The Aston Martin.
Each property has changed from ‘bond street’ and ‘Piccadilly circus’ to properties from James Bond movies such as ‘Live & Let Die’ and ‘Casino Royale’.
When your Monopoly 50th Anniversary Edition James Bond game arrives, you will notice the packaging is gold and has a picture of James Bond, alongside the iconic Monopoly figure, and the phrase ‘007’ written on the front.
As well as for kids, this is a game that can be played by adults. I think we all can remember playing Monopoly as children with our parents and siblings and have fond memories of someone cheating by stealing from the banker! Well the format of the game remains, it is still played in the same way as it has been played over the years, only now, the properties, characters & board have been updated.
This 2012 will see the release of the brand new James Bond film, Skyfall, starring Daniel Craig. The film is expected to be in cinemas in the UK on the 26th of October 2012. Thankfully, Monopoly have included the upcoming film in the featured board game.

Our thoughts on the Monopoly James Bond game are that Monopoly has combined two of our favourite things! we love Monopoly and we love James Bond, so putting the two together seems ideal to us! Monopoly is one of those games that can keep us entertained day in and day out and no two games of it are the same. The only negative thing we have to say is that unless your child is relatively advanced, Monopoly may be a challenge, but on a positive note, it will teach your children money management and some basic Math skills. This game can be played by children and adults alike, it is definitely entertaining and for us, it’s worth every penny.
