Two of the most dominant forces of 20th century American culture have combined in Monopoly Star Wars. As the name would imply, this CD-ROM combines the classic board game with the equally classic movie series.
Gameplay is exactly the same as any other Monopoly game. The object of the game is to buy as much property as possible, eventually causing your opponents go bankrupt. Besides the same object and rules (all of which are by-the-book but adjustable — no cheating, though!), Monopoly Star Wars has a different look to it than the board game. For example, instead of the car, the cowboy or the thimble, play as Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader or Boba Fett. Instead of houses and hotels, buy ships and starports. The property names have also been changed to fit the Star Wars motif (e.g., the Imperial capitol Coruscant is the most expensive property, while Yoda's home planet of Dagobah is the slums). As soon as you've bankrupted your opponents, the galaxy is yours. ~ Christopher Michael Baker, All Game Guide
