Monopoly (Game Boy) Playthrough – NintendoComplete

A playthrough of Parker Brothers’ 1991 board game adaptation for the Nintendo Game Boy, Monopoly.

Played through a single-player game against three CPU-controlled opponents.

I’ve always thought that, no matter how much technology has improved over the years, that the NES version of Monopoly is about the best board-to-video game conversion ever. It streamlined all of the cumbersome elements of the physical game into a multiplayer party-style game with really charming presentation elements, awesome music, and an easy to use interface. It got it all right.

And, the Game Boy version is almost a direct port of the NES version! The lack of voices and a couple of graphics are about the only things that you might hold against this one over the console big-brother title.

In other words, it’s awesome. You can’t get better than this if you’re looking for board games on the Game Boy. Well, unless your handheld has an NES emulator on it with its version on Monopoly! 😉

No cheats were used during the recording of this video.

  1. This is pretty impressive. Though my favorite Monopoly video game would be the one for the Gameboy Advance.

  2. Late to the party, but I still have this one. It's the version my brother and I ended up having. It crams as much as it can from the NES version on the Game Boy so it has most of the proper bells and whistles form it and moves at a good pace for the game.

  3. This Game Boy at those times costed around $200, I once stole the Game Boy and got “directly” jailed for it.

  4. Amazing how we can now play this on our smartphones for only a few dollars yet doesn't offer anywhere near the simplistic gameplay and animations from over 30 years ago.

  5. Well this is about as close as a Monopoly game gets to the real world. No color.

  6. One of the cheapest original game boy games in existence.

  7. It's an almost perfect conversion of one of my all-time favorite NES games – if you enjoy board games in video game form, you really can't go wrong with this one!

  8. That Paul Webb and Ken Moore Title Screen most be sounded on Wall Street.

  9. I just got done playing that game on my GB boy colour that has a backlit LCD screen which allowed me to play it in the dark and I did lose to that stupid computer.

  10. I used to own this game on GB when I was a kid and it's nice to see someone else play through it again after all these years. Keep up the good work, NintendoComplete!

  11. y despues me decian q estaba loco por jugar monopoly solo en la gb y la nes . no sabian que era divertido

  12. While not by any means the best Monopoly video game it does get the job done it's pure monopoly nothing more and nothing less. I do own this game in both the original 1991 gray cart and the 1999 special color black cart. Why? you might ask? Because I was a dumb kid who didn't know they were the same game the only difference being that the 1999 version has added color.

  13. This is much better than I was expecting for sure. You are not wrong its almost a perfect conversion, one of the best NES-Gameboy ones I have ever seen. Doesn't matter how complex it is it seems even simple games didn't get converted perfectly most the time so it is impressive.

  14. Those sounds are creepy. Game boy has no color.

  15. I have an incredibly vivid memory of going to the punpkin patch one fall as a kid and playing this on the car ride there and back

  16. You know, this ain't bad. I'm impressed with the effort the developers put in here. Might just pick this up.

  17. Actually pretty similar to the SNES version

  18. I've had this song stuck in my head recently and couldn't remember where it came from. Thanks for posting.

  19. I'd totally buy it if it weren't for the horrible sound design. I just checked the GBC version and it sounds the same. Yikes.

  20. How funny, me and you go with the exact same name when playing monopoly!

  21. the dice sound likw gunshots from metal gear solid g
    ame boyfied

  22. Gee, if only this game were around when the four player adapter was made, you could have a true four player match.

  23. So this is what my mom played when she was around 20

  24. My parents wanted me out of the house when potential buyers would come to look at it. I’d go to this mom-and-pop gas station, get myself a cheeseburger and play this since the games are so long. Place was cozy and inviting, good times.

  25. Ahh such a lovely memory here i rlly wish i still had my game boy i broke it oof

  26. Loved this game as a kid! I remember I figured out that (much like the player) when you have a property the computer wants, they’ll pretty much give you whatever you want to get it. Made the game a lot easier (and funnier)!

  27. What Gameboy emulator are you using?

  28. The best Gameboy version is the Japanese because supports multiplayer with 2 gameboys have a lot of animation than the international
