From the company that has been making specialty board games since the 80s comes this holiday- themed game that makes a great addition to your list of activities on Christmas night. Christmas-opoly is derived from the ever-famous Monopoly game. Everything from properties to pawns adopts the Christmas-theme.

The board is made of standard Monopoly quality, and so are the rest of the components. The silver finish on the pawns is nice. Money, while it features a playful, whimsical design that really adds to the Christmas feel, is still made of thin average quality paper.

The property deeds and community chest/chance cards are plastic-coated and well polished. Like any other Monopoly games, this one has many game pieces that need to be kept track of. The game also includes directions for traditional play and for a quick one hour version as well.
