Family game night is something I have always envisioned since I became a mother. The thought of my husband, kids and I enjoying a Friday night sitting around the table, laughing and playing a fun family-friendly game. The idea of it sounded fantastic but the reality hit. Sure, family game night was fun when I only had my oldest, but once my youngest came, games were more of stressor than anything. My youngest would take pieces, lose them, and mess up the board game during play. It was hard to get upset because he was so young, but it definitely put a damper on the times we tried to play a board game.
Fast forward to earlier this year when, thanks to Hasbro Game Channel, we finally brought back family game night. And this time, there were no worries of my youngest losing pieces. In fact, there was no clean up or the chance of missing pieces at all. You see, Hasbro teamed up with devices like the X-Box 360 to bring our most cherished games to our family room, straight from our television.
The first game we downloaded was MONOPOLY Plus. It was easy to download and the kids couldn’t have been more excited to play the game.
MONOPOLY Plus brings the world’s favorite family gaming brand to a new level with the original 2D MONOPOLY board as well as a colorful and lively animated 3D version that evolves as you progress in the game. MONOPOLY Plus lets players choose their favorite ‘House Rules’ to customize gameplay. Up to six players will be able to enjoy MONOPOLY Plus online or offline.
It was so nice to sit down with my husband and kids and finally all four of us enjoying a fun family game. No stress about missing pieces or clean up. The kids enjoyed playing on the virtual mode so they could see the pieces in action. Monopoly is such a fun, classic game and I am so glad we are now able to play the game together, making more memories that will be cherished for a lifetime.
