I prefer the rules of the original version over this new one. However, the new version is still a fun game that depends on luck. The only thing you could argue was not dependent upon luck, I guess you could say was choosing your career path at the beginning. I find that going to college is always the worst thing to do in this game, especially due to the fact that later in the game you may get lucky and have the chance to choose a better career and salary card, or steal from another player.

I like to implement some of the older rules, such as spinning for presents.

Overall, it’s a great game for families with young children.

Co-op games can be more entertaining than vs. games (that is players vs players). I believe winning the game could be based on luck and or strategy as well as playing cooperatively. The game board, or playing area is always changing. I really enjoy this game. I’ve even played it solo several times.

I do wish the theme was different and that the components to build the flying machine did not look so much like a toy except for the engine. Also, several of my board tiles seemed to have wear on them before I even played, and some had white markings on the sides.
