Houston Edition

Description

The city of Houston comes to life as you play the Houston Edition of the Monopoly Game. With a roll of the dice, the exciting world of high finance and power brokering begins. The stakes mount quickly as the biggest and most renowned Houston institutions and landmarks are bought, sold and traded. The art of the deal is in your hands as you craft strategies to own all of Houston’s prime properties. Well known as a bastion of commerce, Houston is no stranger to real estate wheelings and dealings that might include trading the Eighth Wonder of the World for the biggest Livestock Show and Rodeo on the planet. Nor is Houston a stranger to roller coaster-style real estate rides. Be an aggressive restaurateur and own such fine eateries as Landry’s, Willie G’s and Joe’s Crab Shack. But, beware of the opponent out to bankrupt you. Fortunes can turn quickly and your properties could be taken over by a hotel magnate who already claims such holdings as the world class Wyndham Warwick and the posh Houstonian Hotel. “Houston, I think we’ve got a problem” may be the case if you don’t control the Space Center Houston property. If further problems develop, remedy them by assuming possession of any of the nationally renowned hospitals making up the Texas Medical Center, the largest health care facility in the world. Expand your horizons and take advantage of Houston’s diverse cultural treasures. Extend your influence over The Children’s Museum, own The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion and become a benevolent benefactor to the city’s celebrated Theater District. Or navigate new routes by taking over Southwest Airlines and buying Port of Houston Authority. With the Houston Edition of the Monopoly Game, shopping has never been more fun-or more risky. Capture the heart and soul of the “Bayou City” with the Houston Edition of the Monopoly Game. Live large, take your chances and roll the dice. You never know where you’ll land. Advance to Go and get ready to take charge of the Southwest’s biggest city.
