One of the main goals our family has set for 2020 is to become closer as a family. Out of all we’ve done as a family so far, it’s clear the greatest success has been our weekly game nights. Every Friday, we’re able to come together as a family and play an assortment of fun board games that bring us together. The first game we were able to play this Friday was a fun spin on one of our families favourite games, Monopoly, called Monopoly Speed.

This version takes the game of Monopoly that we all love and twists the rules for more fast-paced, intense matches of Monopoly aimed for people who prefer shorter, less time-consuming matches. This game has proved perfect for our family because our game nights tend to run until late at night, and this isn’t too ideal for some of my younger kids. With Monopoly Speed, we’re able to finish a game of Monopoly in under 10 minutes and start a new round or fit other games into our game night.
The aim of Monopoly is to bankrupt all of your opponents in order to win, and in Monopoly Speed the game is altered quite a bit to make sure this doesn’t take too long and keeps the fun in the game. With all the players able to buy their property at the same time, breaks in-between stages, timed rounds, infinite get out of jail free cards and another Go Space, Monopoly Speed is an ideal game for people looking to have the most amount of fun possible in a short period of time.
My kids find themselves enjoying this version a lot more since they can get more games without losing interest and Monopoly Speed has become a frequent request during our game nights, especially with our younger sons who enjoy the fast-paced, intense race to take over and bankrupt all other opponents. The new rules are very easy to figure out and super straight forward so it doesn’t take too long for the games to become very competitive. For only 21 dollars, Monopoly Speed is a must-have game for all game nights.
Every single one of my children, at some point in their life, have owned and played with Play-Doh and an assortment of Play-Doh toys. Out of all the toys my kids have had for their Play-Doh, nothing has ever been as big of a success as the Play-Doh Animal Crew toys. My kids are huge animal lovers, so making Play-Doh feathers with the Feather Fun Chicken is one of their favourite things to do when playing with their toys. The Play-Doh Animal Crew toy has a variety of different features including Play-Doh egg-laying, funny chicken clucking sounds, a feather cutter and 4 cans of Play-Doh. My daughter’s favourite feature is the feather cutting, and she has a blast trimming the chickens Play-Doh feathers. For only 20 dollars, the Animal Crew Cluck-A-Dee is the perfect addition for your child’s Play-Doh toy collection.
