Monopoly Empire was the first of Hasbro’s major attempt to make Monopoly more accessible for a generation with less time. Its main theme is business. Players attempt to build their empire by purchasing different brands. The larger the brand, the larger the title deed is.
The winner is the first player to fill their tower to the top.
A new mechanic is added – the ‘Sneaky Swapper’. Roll one of these on your die and you may swap your latest purchase for another player’s property!
After the success of the original Empire, a new version was published in 2014. The main change was the addition of 6 different tokens (see Figure 2, from the top): A Happy Meal, an Angry Bird, headphones, a Coca-Cola bottle, an Xbox controller and a car.
Also, jetBlue was removed as a property and replaced with Angry Birds and the main colour theme was changed from yellow/black to blue.
