Bexleyheath Sainsburys had Monopoly for £4.79. Was marked up at 70% so wasn't a price glitch. They had boxes left, not sure if national.

Cracking price for a fun game. Thanks for sharing!

Worse game ever

With prices like these, it's like they're trying to kill off all of their competition.:{

Seems like a good price to me.
If there was a Sainsbury's near me I'd pop along to see if any left.
Think in it's day it was a great game.
The PC version is OK but doesn't give same feel not handling the money.
Still got my original with wooden houses and hotels, but box has seen it's day.

No matter how the game goes it almost always ends the same.:

Winner: gloat for the rest of the day
Looser(s): swear to never speak to the winner again as they MUST have nicked a £500 while you weren't looking.

Don't think I've ever seen a happy ending to Monopoly :-)

Same in my local branch, i also found this as well which is a great price

hotukdeals.com/dea…ead

Played this last Xmas for the first time in at least 10 years

Found out why I'd stopped playing it

Waits for first person to ask if this is for PS3/360 or Wii.........:-)

Great price, classic game, but it's true it does always end in tears. (_;)

I don't think I've ever seen a game end!

I don't post Sainsbury deals any more. Too many issues.

Anyway, the computer versions of this game are much better, as the computer takes care of the banking- no figuring, no cheating.

the banker always cheats

Cheating is a crucial aspect to making this somewhat dreary game , interesting! Help yourself to a 500 note/house/hotel/exta card, move forward an extra space, move your competiors back one, charge ludicrously high rent. Devise cruel and unusual punisments for those caught cheating. Some good life lessions to be had by the youngsters playing the game.

Monopoly was originally devised by a socialist to illustrate the evils of capitalism- true story.

I remember my father exploding and calling my little sister a "bitch" for taking advantage of an even littler sister in a deal, She was maybe ten years old at the time.

SHOTGUN DOG!

Not played this since I caught the hobgoblin sliding money under the board when she was the banker. oO

Not as bad as your vocab...

Should be "worst" not "worse"

I would also still disagree as it's a great game

£15.99 at my local

we came up with an interesting drinking game at uni for monopoly. the drinks got stronger or better as the property value increased. Chance and CC cards often meant shot. you had to buy property for x-shots of the properties drink, rent y-shots of that properties drink....

ranged from Old Kent Road being value/basics lager to mayfair being premium spirit...

games never lasted as long as a normal game of monopoly...

Time for a Bankopoly version based on current events

This game gets the best out of a person

Nice!

I thought it was the perk of being banker. And without Monopoly we would not have Bankers ruling the world. May be the socialist were right and the bankers are evil.

Nonsense. It was devised by a Georgist to illustrate how land ownership causes problematic concentrations of wealth in a free market.

Would you call famous Georgists - Winston Churchill, Milton Friedman, Henry Ford etc "socialists"?

great game, heat added

monopoly = awesome

Not if you get Mayfair AND Park Lane my friend

None in the Vauxhall one, they suggested Colliers Wood so I'm going to give them a call and cycle down tomorrow.

Still surprises me how popular this is when there are countless better games. Any game that is as bloated as this with too much reliance on luck and that forces losing players to leave the game is poorly designed. Which isn't surprising given how old it is. But it's popularity is due mostly to tradition rather than its quality. I won't vote cold as this is the best price for the game, but I recommend that you save your money and pick up a game like Pandemic, Carcassonne or Settlers of Catan. Just as simple to learn as Monopoly, infinitely more fun.

Went to Sainsburys and its still £15.99 at my local store Fab price!

if you like monopoly you should try the Monopoly Deal card game. Its a lot of fun and very addictive! One of the best purchases ive made in a long time!

Great deal but I've over stretched my finances buying a train station, 3 streets and a water works!

Thank you for giving Worton the English lesson I was losing sleep! How do you spell ploncer or is it plonker?

Mortgage them and buy something more up-market. Oh, and stay out of jail.

Argh when going to jail is the only way you can prolong your existence.
Sad times.
